TKDN of Renewables Subsector in 2021 Exceeds Target

Director General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (NREEC) of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (EMR), Dadan Kusdiana, said the use of local components (TKDN) in the NREEC subsector had shown an impressive progress. "In terms of numbers, everything is fine for the TKDN," said Dadan in a press conference titled Performance of 2021 and Work Plan for 2022 of the NREEC Subsector of the Ministry of EMR, which was held in Jakarta on Monday (17/1).

The TKDN for hydropower plant infrastructure hit 76.71% out of the target of 70%, geothermal power plants 38.97% out of the targeted 35%, and bioenergy power plants 57.75% out of the target 40%.

Dadan explained the TKDN calculation had been based on the infrastructure projects executed throughout 2021. "The calculation has been based on projects per year. In 2021, there were no projects to develop wind power. This is the reason we exclude wind farms," detailed Dadan.

The Directorate General of NREEC has set the TKDN targets for 2022, namely 70% for hydropower plants, 35% for geothermal power plants, and 40% for bioenergy, solar, and wind power plants.

Meanwhile, the installed renewable energy power plants capacity had added by 654.76 megawatts (MW), or 77% of the target 854.78 MW. "Some power plant projects experienced time adjustment, especially due to the pandemic," Dadan commented.

For 2022, the government has set a target to add the installed capacity of renewable energy power plants by 648 MW. Some 335 MW of the addition will come from solar power systems installed by industries, commerce, and household. "We use the RUPTL (Electricity Procurement Plan) as reference," continued Dadan.

To meet this target, the government has assigned a high priority to renewables regulations, among others, the New, Renewable Energy Bill, draft presidential regulation on new, renewable energy prices, draft ministerial decision on energy appliances, and the Indonesian National Standards (SNI) and the Indonesian National Competency Standards (SKKNI) of the NREEC subsector.
