The Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources has finally approved PLN’s 2021-2030 Electricity Supply Business Plan (RUPTL). This long-anticipated RUPTL marks a pivotal milestone for PLN. For the first time, the majority of power generation projects to be developed are renewable energy projects, accounting for 51.6% of 40,575 MW of power generation projects. The RUPTL also allocates a bigger share to Independent Power Producers in developing power generation projects.

Looking specifically at digitalization, we are pleased to share with you our first in a series of publications, highlighting the key points that should be considered in structuring your companies’ operations. In this publication, we will be looking at investing into, and operating, Data Centers in Indonesia.

Over the past few weeks, the Indonesian Government has been reducing the level of Enforcement of Public Activity Restrictions in various regions within Indonesia. In light of this, and to further support Indonesia’s economic recovery, the Minister of Law and Human Rights issued Regulation No. 34 of 2021 on Granting of Immigration Visas and Stay Permits during COVID-19 Spread Handling and National Economic Recovery on 15 September 2021.

Unlike in other jurisdictions, straightforward corporate power purchase agreements are not possible in Indonesia, as only the Indonesian state-owned power utility PT PLN (Persero) (PLN) and private power developers that have the relevant business area approval can sell electricity to end customers. As a result, there is a general perception among developers and corporates alike that it is not possible to implement corporate PPA structures in Indonesia. In fact, this is not the case, and as the Government of Indonesia makes a big push for rooftop solar schemes, we expect to see an uptick in structures that enable private developers to arrange for electricity generation to customers.

The Government of Indonesia is making a big push to encourage the development of rooftop solar PV projects, in line with the policies it began to introduce with the issuance of Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) Regulation No. 49 of 2018 (“Reg 49”), in order to encourage Indonesia’s solar PV industry, and its global commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The MEMR has now revoked Reg 49 and replaced it with MEMR Regulation No. 26 of 2021 on Rooftop Solar Power Plants Connected to the Electricity Grid for Public Interest License Holders (“Reg 26”). Reg 26 became effective on 20 August 2021.

The Ministry of Trade (MOT) has issued Minister of Trade Regulation No. 59 of 2020 (“Regulation 59”) which is an amendment to Minister of Trade Regulation No. 118/M-DAG/PER/12/2015 on Import Provisions for Complementary Goods, Goods for the Purpose of Market Testing, and After-Sales Service (“Regulation 118”).
