U.S. Embassy Jakarta has established the U.S. Power Working Group (PWG) as an American team program for firms supporting President Jokowi’s “35 GW” power development plan. This Embassy assisted team serves as a platform for American firms to dialogue with the Indonesian government on how they can contribute to Indonesia’s power infrastructure.

The initiative was formally established at PLN headquarters in September 2015 with the signing of a memorandum of understanding by Ambassador Blake and Minister Sudirman Said representing the U.S. Embassy and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, respectively. Since the creation of the program, the group has expanded to approximately 60 leading U.S. energy firms.

The platform enables Team USA to execute a series of group-proposed activities aimed at introducing, supporting, and developing commercial projects, and providing constructive input into relevant legislation.
