About the Seminar This presentation will explore Indonesia’s potential to transition to renewable energy sources by 2060, focusing on securing funding and implementing the shift. It outlines Indonesia’s energy transition goals, assesses progress in adopting renewable energy sources, and examines financial mechanisms like ETM and JETP-Indonesia. The presentation will also evaluates Indonesia’s economic strength, including its ability to mobilize domestic resources and secure international loans for financing the energy transition. Fulfilling ambitious energy transition targets will require addressing long-standing challenges such as low institutional quality and regulatory uncertainty. It is likely that Indonesia could make significant strides in its energy transition, but maintaining consistency, monitoring progress, and considering flexibility in target implementation may be necessary.
