The Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Sudirman Said has blamed unfavorable regulations for being the biggest obstacle to the development of clean energy.
Nearly all regulations in the energy sector needed to be adjusted to support clean energy, Sudirman said.
Indonesia plans to spur investment in clean energy with the Bali Clean Energy Forum, to be held in February next year.
“Indonesia will encourage global partnerships on renewable energy funding, technology transfer and human-resources assistance. The three pillars have to be supported by regulatory reform regarding tariffs, permits and the energy mix,” he said during a press conference in Jakarta on Tuesday.
