Client Alert – MEMR Reg 16/2022

After waiting for more than a year for various Indonesian ministries to issue implementing regulations on carbon trading, the issuance of Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 16 of 2022 on The Procedures for Carbon Pricing Implementation for Power Plant Sub-sector (MEMR Reg 16/2022) indicates that emission trading for coal-fired power plants (PLTU) may commence very soon.


As the first sectoral regulation issued regarding carbon trading for the power plant Sub-sector, MEMR Reg 16/2022 offers more clarification on the procedures for implementing carbon trading in the power plant sub-sector, specifically emission trading for PLTU which requires a GHG emission ceiling. It sets out the timeline for establishing an emission ceiling technical approval (PTBAE) for PLTU, the procedure for carrying out emission offset for new and renewable energy power plants, and several reporting obligations that must be carried out by business actors.
