This paper assesses the efficacy of Indonesia’s existing policy framework for advancing the electricity transition agenda.
Using the Multi-Level Perspective framework, the assessment suggests that Indonesia’s current policy framework is characterized by a high degree of institutional incoherence and has not been successful in promoting the uptake of renewable energy.
The paper argues that Indonesia needs for a more coherent framework to advance the energy transition agenda and outlines five key requisites to achieve this:
- Creating a shared vision
- Turning the long-term vision into short-term actions
- Promoting international cooperation
- Encouraging bottom-line thinking
- Coordinating the transition process
The paper will be published as a part of the ADBI Working Papers in an ADBI-edited book.
