Indonesia to Boost Power Generation Capacity by 2.3 GW in 2022


The Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ministry expects Indonesia's electricity consumption to reach 1,268 kWh per capita this year compared to last year's realized figure of 1,123 kWh per capita. Along with the increase in electricity consumption, the government plans to increase the generating capacity by 2.3 gigawatts (GW) to 76.3 GW by 2022. The total installed capacity of the power plant is 3.1 percent higher than the 2021 realized figure of 74 GW. As for renewable energy-based power plants, the government expects this year's capacity to increase to 11,791 megawatts (MW) compared to this year's 11,152 MW or up 639 "W. "These new renewable energy sources must be utilized, in order to reduce emissions," Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Arifin Tasrif said at a press conference on Wednesday.

This year, the government has set a target of 100 percent of the electrification ratio and the ratio of electrified villages. For the record, this year's realized electrification ratio was 99.45 percent, and the ratio of electrified villages was 99.62 percent. "These efforts can be through network expansions, mini-grid constructions, electrical power distribution equipment procurements, and the implementation of the New Installation of Electricity Assistance program for Poor Households," said Arifin.
