09:00 - 11:00 : [Panel discussion] Retiring coal power plants

The immediate end of coal is the key to decarbonise Indonesia’s power sector. However, phasing out coal have several potential risks, mainly due to stranding of downstream and upstream assets, that could significantly incur financial and economic loss. This session will discuss an effective coal retirement mechanism to enable a rapid and cost-effective energy transition
