Indonesia is the largest economy in Southeast Asia with an average annual gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 5% over the last decade. The country is one of the largest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitters and has a set target to reduce emission by at least 29% by 2030. It has also announced a coal-fired power plant (CFPP) retirement program for 2040 with the ultimate goal to reach Net Zero emission by 2060. The energy sector will contribute to 50% of total emission reduction (150 m tons CO2 equivalent). Of this number, 60% will come from new renewable energy (RE) power plants, 30% from transportation (biofuel utilization) and the rest from the utilization of biofuel in the industrial sector.
