PLN, Coca-Cola Europe-Pacific partners boost Indonesia's green agenda with 90GWh renewables collaboration

In a major stride towards environmental sustainability, PT PLN (Persero) has entered into a collaboration with Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) Indonesia, agreeing on a Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) collaboration of 90 Gigawatt hours (GWh). The collaboration was formalized through the signing of a Sale and Purchase Agreement utilizing PLN’s Green Energy As Services REC service for 90,211 units until 2025.

REC is a renewable energy certificate service provided by PLN, internationally recognized, and available for use by industrial and household customers to claim renewable energy usage. CCEP Indonesia plans to utilize the REC to meet the energy requirements of its Bekasi 1 Factory, the largest facility in its network.

M Siradj Parwito, Assistant Deputy for Forestry Products and Environmental Services Management at the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, praised the collaboration as a concrete step towards reducing carbon emissions in line with global efforts to mitigate climate change. The Indonesian government appreciates such initiatives as it continues its efforts to shift from fossil-based fuels to increased reliance on renewable energy.

Edi Srimulyanti, PLN Retail and Commerce Director highlighted the collaboration as a demonstration of the commitment of both PLN and Coca-Cola to support the government’s target of achieving Net Zero Emissions (NZE) by 2060. CCEP Indonesia will receive RECs sourced from renewable energy generators, with PLN distributing them in three stages over the next three years.

Edi emphasized that PLN’s REC service simplifies the process for customers to claim the use of renewable energy, providing transparency, accountability, and international recognition. Since its introduction in 2020, the demand for PLN RECs has surged, growing more than tenfold by November 2023, with over 300 corporate buyers.

Lucia Karina, Director of Public Affairs, Communications, and Sustainability at CCEP Indonesia, expressed the company’s commitment to being a catalyst for energy transition in Indonesia. The collaboration with PLN’s REC is seen as part of a broader movement to contribute to environmental conservation and community welfare.

CCEP Indonesia aims to use PLN’s REC to reduce dependence on fossil energy-based equipment in its factories and offices, setting an example for others in the industry to follow suit. The partnership reflects a shared vision to combat the escalating threat of carbon emissions and drive positive change for the planet.
