The State-Owned Electricity Company PLN has introduced the PLN Climate Click platform as a supporting tool for carbon trading among power generators in Indonesia. Through PLN Climate Click, the progress and decarbonization efforts undertaken by PLN can be regularly monitored.

PLN’s CEO, Darmawan Prasodjo, stated that the PLN Climate Click platform has been effectively operational since September 8, 2023, and is expected to serve as a platform for the public to directly monitor the decarbonization processes at PLN.

Darmawan mentioned that carbon trading has becoming a global trend, and Indonesia is also initiating this as an effort to reduce and control carbon emissions that can be directly monitored.

“The launch of the PLN Climate Click application is a manifestation of PLN’s commitment to support the government’s program to achieve the Nationally Determined Contribution [NDC] by 2030 and achieve Net Zero Emissions [NZE] by 2060,” said Darmawan in an official statement on Friday, September 15, 2023.

Furthermore, he explained that the PLN Climate Click platform represents the utilization of technology as a tool to adapt to climate change and reduce its negative impacts.

“By using digital technology to collect and analyze data, we hope to make better, more accurate, faster, and more effective decisions and actions,” he said.

Supporting carbon trading

Meanwhile, Evy Haryadi, Director of Transmission and System Planning at PLN, explained that the application also provides data on greenhouse gas emissions inventory scope 1 (direct emissions), scope 2, and 3 (indirect emissions).

In implementing carbon trading, Evy emphasized that PLN adheres to the Carbon Economic Value (Nilai Ekonomis Karbon – NEK) implementation regulations. Currently, PLN has at least five corporate entities involved in NEK implementation as part of its business development.

These five entities are PT PLN Indonesia Power (IP) and PT PLN Nusantara Power (NP) as carbon trading participants, PT PLN ICON Plus as the provider and developer of the carbon trading platform, PT Energy Management Indonesia (EMI) as the carbon trading management office, and PLN Pusertif as the validation and verification institution.

Evy stated that PLN will continue to support carbon trading, both through direct trading and carbon markets, following government regulations. “It is hoped that carbon trading, as a decarbonization enabler program, can support PLN’s efforts to achieve the 2030 NDC and 2060 NZE,” she said.
