Indonesia needs to invest $227bn in its power sector to ensure supply for all by 2029 as mandated by the General Plan for National Electricity.

Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry director general for electricity Emy Perdanahari told The Jakarta Post that the country’s power demand is expected to rise by 9.5% a year or 7,800MW for the next two decades, requiring a yearly investment of $11.4bn.

About $200bn of the fund will be used to build power plants, $15bn for transmission networks, another $15bn for power houses and $11.27bn for distribution networks nationwide.

In ten years, PLN plans to increase electricity capacity to 55,484MW with 12,365MW in the western part of the country, 6,896MW in the east and 36,222MW in Java and Bali.
