Risks and opportunities


PLN is awarded a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely stay the same. The company’s emissions intensity is expected to fall from 882 gCO2e/kWh in 2018 to 852 gCO2e/kWh by 2023, but its well-below 2-degree pathway requires a much more rapid fall to 791 gCO2e/kWh. PLN lacks an emissions reduction target, which, if implemented, could drive a greater strategic focus on decarbonisation. In the medium to long term, the company’s locked-in emissions mean it is expected to exceed its carbon budget. The Indonesian government recently announced its intention to replace 1.78 GW of diesel, 5.7 GW of coal and 5.9 GW of gas with renewable energy, though no time frame was specified for this. The government is also preparing a new presidential regulation that would provide a much stronger legal and regulatory basis for renewable energy development. If implemented effectively, this legislation could enable PLN to achieve its target of 23% renewable capacity by 2025.
