State-owned electricity company PLN has axed a project to develop a coal-fired power plant as the country chases its long-delayed commitments to cut carbon dioxide emissions. PLN vice president of corporate communications Gregorius Adi Trianto confirmed that the company had canceled its plans to build a 1-gigawatt (GW) plant in Indramayu, West Java. “PLN took the initiative to stop borrowing [funds for the project] as part of PLN's efforts to reach [our] carbon neutral goal by 2060,” Gregorius said on Friday in a reply by text message to The Jakarta Post.
