Grants Feed-In Tariffs for a period of 20 years in the range of USD 0.145-0.25/kWh and vary by regions. This policy targets development of 250 MW of PV capacity in 22 provinces. Conditions include: a capacity quota of 250MW as the eligible maximum, maximum limit of project size per developer based on the available quota in the region (if quota is below 10MW, there’s no limit; if quota is between 10-100 MW the limit for developers is 20% of the quota; if quota is above 100 MW, the limit for developers is 20 MW), the largest quota is in Java at 150 MW and the smallest quota is 2.5 MW in Papua/West Papua combined provinces. Local content on the project is required (43.8%), subject to the minimum based on the Ministry of Trade and Industry’s regulations. If the requirement is not reached, the FiT will be reduced by the same percentage.

Aims to increase the use of biofuel as a replacement fossil-based fuel. Creates the National Team for Biofuel Development to support policy implementation on national and sub-national levels and between sectors. The Biofuel Road Map establishes a specific agenda for biofuel production targets.

Villages located in the Special Biofuel Zones, known as Energy Self-Sufficient Villages (ESSV), are to receive regional funding to set up renewable energy development plans in accordance with local renewable potentials.

By 2025, 15% of the country’s electricity demand to be from renewable energy sources. Specific targets for energy production from various renewable energy sources are established as follows: Geothermal: 9 500 MW; Small-scale hydropower: 500 MW (on grid) 330 MW (off grid); Solar energy: 80 MW; Biomass for power generation: 810 MW Wind energy: 250 MW (on grid) 5 MW (off grid)
