This picture taken on October 29, 2020 shows the Celukan Bawang 2 power plant in Singaraja on Indonesia\'s resort island of Bali.  China’s plan to fund dozens of foreign coal plants from Zimbabwe to Indonesia is set to produce more emissions than those of major developed nations, threatening global efforts to fight climate change, environmentalists have warned.

Indonesia is still far from achieving its target to increase the share of renewable energy to 23 percent of the national energy mix by 2025. Reducing the use of fossil energy is the key to environmental sustainability.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS — As part of the 2015 Paris Agreement, Indonesia has committed itself to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent by 2030 in order to keep the increase in the global average temperature to below 2 degrees Celsius and, if possible, 1.5 degrees Celsius. The use of fossil energy should be reduced while the use of renewable energy must be increased to achieve this target.
