Waste to energy in Indonesia: Assessing opportunities and barriers using insights from the UK and beyond
This report investigates the potential of waste-to-energy technologies as a solution to Indonesia’s growing waste and energy challenges, and offers recommendations that address barriers to deployment. Three overarching challenges are identified that focus on the economic viability of facilities, the need for local government capacity building and government coordination, and the social dimensions of waste-to-energy. These challenges encapsulate a set of 14 discrete barriers to waste-to-energy deployment, each of which are described and related to Indonesia’s unique context in section 7 of the report. To address the overarching challenges, a set of seven solutions are presented that leverage international examples of best practice.
