Indonesia‘s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) has enacted the law MEMR 26/2021 that improves the net metering legislation for rooftop PV.
This is the third time the Indonesian government has amended the rules since they came into force in 2018, as they have so far failed to deliver the expected growth volume in terms of new PV installations.
“The new regulation has passed the bureau of law, however, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) has yet to announce this officially,” Marlistya Citraningrum, the program manager for sustainable energy access at the Institute for Essential Services Reform (IESR), told pv magazine. “There is new presidential regulation issued in August 2021 stating that any ministerial regulations concerning ‘national strategic issue' must be reviewed and given a go by the president himself.” According to her, rooftop solar is one of the top priorities for Indonesian president, Joko Widodo, also known as Jokowi, whose national strategic programs are targeting 3.6 GW of capacity by 2024.
