      Policy description NEP14 introduces a number of important changes to energy policy planning. It focuses on re-establishing Indonesia’s energy independence by re-directing energy resources from export to the domestic market, and aims to rebalance the energy mix towards indigenous energy supplies. This translates into minimising oil consumption, increasing the exploitation and consumption of renewables and coal, optimising gas production and consumption, and consideration of nuclear energy as the option of last resort.


      - Renewable (primary) energy target of 23% by 2025

      - Energy access: Electrification rate to reach 99.4% by 2019.

      - Energy security: Favorable pricing policy for natural gas combined with prioritizing gas for domestic uses (stop gas export)

      - However, gas and coal use are also expected to double and triple, respectively.
