Indonesia’s power sector to measure and report greenhouse gas emission reduction mitigation action

3 May 2019

 The Indonesian government is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent as of 2030. Of this figure, the energy sector would contribute 11 percent of the emission reduction, so good measurement and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reduction from the sector will ensure Indonesia that its emission reduction targets shall be achieved. USAID Indonesia Clean Energy Development II (ICED II) worked with UNDP Market Transformation through Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (MTRE3) to assist the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources’ Directorate General of Electricity in developing guidelines on the measurement and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reduction mitigation action from power generation sector. The guidelines will help State Electricity Company (PLN) and independent power producers with their own monitoring and reporting. The Directorate, UNDP MTRE3 and USAID ICED II also held a workshop on May 3, 2019, in Jakarta that focused on data and information collection on mitigation action of greenhouse gas emission reduction in the power generation sector. A total of 135 participants from various units and offices of the Directorate, as well as independent power producers, took part in the workshop.
