Key Points

“The power sector remains an industry that is recovering at the latest due to the pandemic. Until the first half of 2020, domestic electricity sales have not yet recovered, which is burdening electric companies entering survival mode. Continued support from the government is being observed through electricity bill relief that is extended to the end of this year as well as recovery plans to enforce the continuity of the country’s energy master plan towards energy transition and security.”

This energy insight is supported by the ASEAN Climate Change and Energy Project (ACCEPT), funded by the Norwegian Government under the Norwegian-ASEAN Regional Integration Programme (NARIP) and is jointly implemented by the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI). The project includes the active involvement of key ASEAN stakeholders and helps enhance modelling, analytical and regional policy planning capacities within ASEAN.
