Indonesia also has a commitment to fulfill the target of sustainable development goals 7. However, in its implementation there are still challenges and obstacles to increase new and renewable energy in the national energy mix. The research method used is normative juridical with literature study.

It is desirable for the existing problems and obstacles can be overcome by amending the energy law. Currently, the Indonesian government has outlined the arrangement of the draft of law convening new and renewable energy and is currently incorporated in the national legislative program 2022. Amendments to the new and renewable energy law are important instruments for policy changes to realize the SDGs that can provide legal certainty, strengthen institutions and governance for renewable energy development, create an investment climate and support funding.
