State-owned electricity giant PLN is slated to receive Rp 9.6 trillion (US$695 million) in state capital injections (PMN) from the government this year to develop power infrastructure in Indonesia and increase the country’s electrification ratio.
The capital comprises Rp 5 trillion from the 2020 state budget and Rp 4.6 trillion diverted from the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry budget. PLN will use the capital to develop renewable energy power plants, power lines and substations.
The funds allocation is stipulated in Government Regulation No. 37/2020 and No. 36/2020, both of which were issued on July 7.
“We will use the funds as equity and reduce PLN loans,” PLN president director Zulkifli Zaini told House of Representatives lawmakers in Jakarta on Monday evening.

The government has ordered state-owned electricity company PLN to use natural gas in some of its power plants in order to reduce Indonesia’s oil imports and to increase usage of cleaner fuel sources.
The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry issued a decree dated Jan. 10 ordering PLN to use liquefied natural gas (LNG) in 52 diesel power plants that will be later modified to enable them to use gas.
The ministry had also assigned state-owned oil company Pertamina to supply the gas. The program’s purpose, as noted in the decree, is to reduce the trade deficit and to support the energy diversification program.

Over the past five years, state-owned electricity company PLN has been intensifying the use of palm oil in its diesel-fired power plants but, going forward, the company is intent on slowing down usage out of technical concerns.
PLN president director Zulkifli Zaini said on Tuesday that using pure crude palm oil-based (CPO) biodiesel or B100 to fuel diesel-fired power plants “creates crust in the machines that may damage the plant’s machine components.” The plants also produced up to twice the carbon dioxide emissions compared to when using diesel fuel.
“It’s best that CPO is used for diesel machines designed to use vegetable fuels,” he told a hearing with lawmakers in Jakarta.

The provinces of West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) and North Sumatra have begun operating four renewable-energy power plants with a modest production capacity of 11.8 megawatts (MW) combined.
East Nusa Tenggara launched the 5MW Sambelia solar power plant in Lombok in December of last year. North Sumatra began operating the 5MW Bakal Semarak mini hydropower plant, the 1MW Kwala Sawit biogas plant and the 0.8MW Pagar Merbau biogas plant on Thursday. The plants’ developers formally began operation after signing agreements with state-owned utility company PLN.
“This was a pleasant surprise at the start of the year; renewable energy production continues to rise,” said Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ministry official Trois Dilisusendi in a statement on Friday (17/1).

Nine dead after Indonesian capital hit by New Year flooding

Nine people died after Indonesia's capital was hit by its deadliest flooding in years, authorities said Wednesday, as torrential rains on New Year's Eve left vast swathes of the megalopolis submerged.
Electricity was switched off in hundreds of waterlogged neighbourhoods across greater Jakarta, home to about 30 million people, with some train lines and one of the city's airports also shut.
A 16-year-old was electrocuted by a power line, while three more people died of hypothermia said Jakarta disaster management agency head Subejo.
"We're hoping that the floodwaters will recede, but if the rain keeps up it'll continue," said the official, who like many Indonesians goes by one name.

The six-hour Jakarta blackout on Aug. 4 was this year’s key issue in the electricity sector, prompting the public to raise the ultimate issue: inequality in access to electricity despite the high electrification ratio.
State-owned electricity company PLN attributed the blackout to an accident that knocked down one of two power lines supplying electricity to Jakarta. Unfortunately, the incident occurred while the other line was under maintenance and the city’s emergency power plants at rest.
A month after the blackout, PLN acting president director Sripeni Inten Cahyani told legislators at a House of Representative hearing in Jakarta that the company would build a 101 megawatt (MW) diesel-fired power plant to provide emergency power for the capital and disburse Rp 839 billion (US$58.7 million) in customer compensation.

New Rules for Clean Energy
28 December 2019 12:05 WIB
Jakarta - THE government’s steps issuing regulations regarding new and renewable energy (EBT) for electricity power plants need to be carried out with great care. Rules that are user-friendly to investors are indeed necessary to develop clean energy. But the government has to ensure the regulations do not provide an opportunity for rent-seekers to come in, and also should not overburden the State Electricity Company (PLN).
The new regulations to be issued under presidential regulations concern the purchase of power from private companies by PLN. This regulation will be a breath of fresh air for renewable energy investors because clean energy will be the top priority in the state electricity company’s plans. PLN is compelled to give purchase priority to nine types of EBT power plants, including geothermal, air, wind, solar, and sea currents.
