【报告内容简介】Indonesia’s budget has for years been burdened by large subsidies for electricity consumption. A series of recent reforms has delivered a substantial reduction in these subsidies. In this paper we estimate demand-side effects of these reforms on electricity use. Our analysis utilizes a three-dimensional dataset covering six consumer groups, 16 regions, and 1992–2015. Our estimates suggest that subsidy reductions since 2013 have induced electricity savings of around 7% relative to the no-reform counterfactual. Phasing out remaining subsidies has the potential to generate further improvements in the efficiency of electricity use in Indonesia, while freeing up resources for other priorities.
