The Company uses several energy sources, both renewable and non-renewable energy. Non-renewable energy includes coal, fuel, natural gas, and others, while the use of renewable energy includes biomass energy used in power plant operational activities. To reduce the use of non-renewable energy, the Company strives to make various initiatives including the integration of new and renewable energy. The Company runs an energy efficiency program to reduce the use of energy for own use in the generating unit.
With “Green” aspiration, PLN Increase generation capacity with a focus on NRE, to support the achievement of electricity procurement that is more environmentally friendly. In the Green target, three breakthroughs were set, namely the Implementation of RJPP EBT 2019-2024, Launching of “Green Booster”, and launching of “Large Scale Renewables.
In line with the government’s plan to increase the role of NRE in the national energy mix which is targeted to reach 23% by 2025, PLN GG is ready to play a role in realizing the NRE target by playing an active role in the development of Geothermal Power Plants.
In supporting the energy transition process, PLN has carried out various initiatives. For example, PLN has created a roadmap to switch to green energy according to the greenest Electricity Supply Business Plan (RUPTL) in history. Namely, with a target of 51.6 percent additional EBT-based generators or around 20.9 GW by 2030.
Apart from that, PLN is also encouraging the ecosystem of electric motorized vehicles in Indonesia. This support is carried out by providing infrastructure for Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (SPKLU) spread throughout Indonesia.
As a form of appreciation from other parties, PLN won 19 Awards at ISDA 2022 event. ISDA 2022 is an award event presented to companies that save energy, carry out environmental conservation and social activities in the community, as well as various positive things as a contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) or Sustainable Development Goals.

Continuous efforts to reduce cost of electricity supplies are also made by reducing the use of fuel oil and optimizing power production from primary energy sources of lower prices in order to carry out the Government’s mandate to keep electricity prices stable and to maintain people’s purchasing power and industrial competitiveness.
PLN commits by 2030 to conduct a program that is carried out periodically by monitoring and reporting on energy consumption every month to doubling energy efficiency improvements at the global level. This strategy is purposedly done to achieve the best energy efficiency management so that the use of electrical energy can be saved.
President Director of PLN Darmawan Prasodjo stated that PLN fully supports the government’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions. So, this transition agenda is important not only for the sake of obtaining clean energy but also shifting from fossil energy which is based on imports to domestic-based EBT. This is where the important role of the utilization of water and geothermal resources for the development of hydroelectric power plants (PLTA), micro-hydro power plants (PLTM), and geothermal power plants (PLTP).
In 2022, PLN has conducted an EBT generator of 1.5 GW. Along with this strategy PLN has carried out many programs including 5 collaborations related to EBT development with various parties. By now, PLN’s EBT generators have reached 8,512 MW.
PLN also continuously develops its capacity in order to follow and anticipate the development of regulations, policies, and technology in resource management. For its excellent performance, PLN won a non-monetary award given by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources to the Government and stakeholders who have successfully implemented energy efficiency and conservation in the industrial and building sectors, as well as within government agencies, called Subroto Awards.
PT PLN (Persero) Group won 25 (twenty-five) awards at the 2022 Subroto Award which was held by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.
