Indonesia Country Analysis Brief - January 2013
Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world. Formerly a net oil exporter and OPEC member, Indonesia struggles to attract sufficient investment to meet growing domestic energy consumption because of inadequate infrastructure and a complex regulatory environment. At the same time, it was the world’s largest exporter of coal by weight and the eighth largest exporter of natural gas in 2011. The government seeks to meet energy demand at home by reorienting domestic energy production away from exports and increasing renewable energy production, particularly geothermal power.
