New Market Report: Indonesia Power Report Q4 2014

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Oct 22 2014

The Indonesian power sector will grow slower in 2014 than it has in the past five years, due to a slowing economy and higher electricity prices. We expect the country's electricity mix to change significantly over the long-term, and view the victory of Joko Widodo in the 2014 presidential elections as a risk to our forecasts.

We are forecasting electricity generation in Indonesia to grow by 6.3% in 2014. This is lower than the five-year historical average growth rate of 7.0%, which we attribute to slower economic growth and higher electricity prices. Our long-term growth forecasts for electricity generation in Indonesia are unchanged this quarter, with generation expected to grow an average of 6.5% per annum between 2014 and 2023. We highlight that the country's electricity mix is set to change significantly over our forecast period, with the share of oil-fired generation set to decrease significantly and the shares of coal and non-hydropower renewables power to grow considerably.

Key Trends And Developments

* The Indonesian government has raised the price of electricity by 15% since the start of 2013. All four increments of 4.3% were implemented successfully in January, April, July, and October.
* On April 8, Indonesia's State-Owned Enterprises Minister Dahlan Iskan announced plans to build a 2GW coal-fired power plant in Jakarta. This appears to be part of the government's plan to expand its second Fast Track Programme (FTP 2). State utility Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) had first highlighted the government's plan to increase the capacity of FTP 2 from 10GW to 17GW in June 2013. The government has removed electricity subsidies for large-scale industrial users. Electricity tariffs for businesses will be increased by either 38.9% or 64.7% depending on the power consumption of the businesses.
