Abstract

Indonesia is blessed with abundant renewable energy resources that can be used to produce electricity for national grid. However, only a small amount of the renewable energy resources, less than 10%, has been utilized to produce electricity. The energy share is still dominated by fossil fuel which results in greenhouse gas emission. In order to increase the energy share and reduce greenhouse gas emission, the Government of Indonesia (GoI) has released several financial mechanisms in supporting the growth of the Independent Power Producers (IPP) to produce electricity from renewable energy resources. One of the potential mechanisms is the Feed-in tariff (FIT) policy. The FIT allows the PLN (State Electricity Company) to buy the electricity produced by the IPPs from renewable energy resource with a higher price and sell it to the costumer below the buying price. In this work, the history of the FIT in Indonesia is overviewed. The results show that FIT has changed several times to meet the need of IPP. However, the FIT has no significant effect yet to the growth of the IPP. Thus, other supporting financial mechanisms must be provided by the GoI.
