Scenarios are stories about what could happen in the future—not what will happen (predictions) or what should happen (proposals)—but what could happen over the coming years in the Indonesian energy sector , based on the latest political, economic, social, cultural, ecological, and international data and dynamics.
These four scenarios were developed by a team of 28 of Indonesia’s brightest minds from state-owned and private enterprises, political parties, government departments, non-governmental organizations, and academia.
These very different stories of the possible future for the Indonesian energy sector are intended to be relevant, challenging, plausible and clear in order to facilitate strategic conversations with energy leaders and stakeholders about the best way to address Indonesia’s energy challenges. The purpose of the stories is to provide a common framework and language to support dialogue, debate, and decision-making among actors within and outside the energy sector. They are intended to support an open and constructive search for answers to core questions on energy policy and strategy: What opportunities and challenges are we and could we be facing? What are our best options? What is the best way forward and what actions should we take?
