Double The Capacity in Five Years: Electricity Plan
From marketing point of view, there is two option in promoting the issues of electricity:
1. Build New 35,000 MW
2. Double the capacity
3. Other Alternative e.g Increase Electrification Ratio.
Double the capacity actually is more interesting, because several reasons:
1. It means that average 20% growth / year.
2. It means that current capacity (might be 43.4 GW according to RUPTL, or 50,7 GW RPJMN) will be used as baseline (which is very difficult to find a baseline)
From timeline perspective:
A. 8 Jan 2015, PP 2 2015 RPJMN 2015-2019 approved
Electricity Capacity of 86.6 GW (45 GW + 35 GW + 6.6 GW)
B. 12 Jan 2015, KepMen ESDM 0074 K/21/MEM/2015 tentang RUPTL 2015-2024
What media response?
Well, vary, from inaccurate current capacity (e.g 53 GW, 44 GW) to inaccurate timeline (e.g 2019, 2020, 2024). Some inaccuracy due to unclear information but I think another inaccuracy due to the number is extremely big.
