Indonesia plans to sell electricity to Malaysia

Thursday, 10 November 2016


JAKARTA: Indonesia plans to sell electricity to Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore as the government is targeting greater profitability from several coal mine-mouth power plants that are anticipated to be completed soon in Sumatra.

According to National Development Planning Board head, Bambang Brodjonegoro, the plan was feasible as the power plants would have excess capacity.

As long as Sumatra’s electricity needs are fulfilled, Indonesia can export the excess capacity as electricity demands were huge in peninsular Malaysia and southern Thailand, where Indonesia could meet those demands at competitive price.

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s administration is targeting to complete its ongoing 35,000 megawatt (MW) electricity procurement programme by 2019.
