Jakarta (ANTARA) – Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Arifin Tasrif said Indonesia has prepared several initiatives to meet the target of implementing a new and renewable energy mix of 23 % by 2025.

“Attempts include the development of large-scale hydroelectric, geothermal and hydrogen power plants,” he informed the opening of the G20 20 (C20) civil society forum on Monday.

In addition, the government will install a 3.6 gigawatt (GW) rooftop solar power plant (PLTS), which has the potential to increase the use of clean energy mix by 0.8%, he added. .

The use of biofuels will also be boosted to reach up to 11.6 million kilolitres, he said. The attempt is expected to increase the use of the clean energy mix by 4%, he added.

In addition, the government will provide tax and non-tax incentives for the use of clean energy, the minister said.

To accelerate the reduction of carbon emissions, Indonesia has also applied several environment-friendly technologies, such as carbon capture, storage and utilization (CCUS) technology as well as super power grid technology, he noted.

The government is also working to promote the use of electric vehicles and the implementation of energy management, he said.

However, Tasrif pointed out that collaboration between government, private actors and non-governmental organizations is needed to overcome the different challenges to achieve net zero emissions.
