Replacing Suralaya coal with solar PV: Initiating a fair and inclusive energy transition in Indonesia

This presentation sets out our analysis of Indonesian government announced plans to replace 3.4GW of coal units at Suralaya with new grid-connected solar PV. We examine a range of climate and wider socioeconomic impacts, explore feasibility and offer recommendations to ensure coal phase-out is delivered in a fair and inclusive manner. The slides formed the basis of focus group discussions with key energy sector stakeholders in Indonesia.

Three Indonesian solar-powered futures

This report takes a closer look at solar photovoltaic (PV) as a clean alternative to coal-powered electricity supply for Indonesia. We establish a sense of direction and scale of the impacts of solar PV deployment on energy security, emissions, employment, air pollution, and SDGs. With analyses such as this one we hope to inform and inspire support for energy and climate policy that truly reflects Indonesia’s ‘highest possible ambition’ towards achieving prosperity and fighting climate change.
