Billions of dollars in additional risk is being created through business variability guarantees and by state-owned enterprises assuming currency risk in new coal power plant contracts.

Indonesia Govt taking massive risk through subsidies to the coal industry

Indonesia's electricity plans are dominated by dirty coal-fired power plants, which not only create environmental problems, but also create significant financial risks for the Government of Indonesia and for Indonesian electricity consumers. Guarantees and similar policies that benefit coal power plants in Indonesia could result in losses to the Government of Indonesia that reach tens trillions of rupiah - billions of U.S dollars. These financial risks arise from a combination of risk insurance (guarantees) and credit enhancement programs for dirty coal electricity projects.
