On January 19 2016 the government promulgated Presidential Regulation 4/2016 on Acceleration of Electricity Infrastructure Development as part of its commitment to ensuring the success of the 35,000-megawatt programme.
Regulation 4/2016 outlines the rules for the implementation of the Electricity Infrastructure Development (EID) by PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero) (PLN). It provides PLN with two options for managing EID projects: by way of self-management or by way of electricity supply cooperation through PLN's subsidiary or with power plant developers.
PLN may choose the self-management option if the following conditions are met:
Electricity supply cooperation through PLN's subsidiary will apply if PLN plans to cooperate with a foreign state-owned company through a joint venture to obtain funding or energy supply for the implementation of the EID.

Both options of self-management and electricity supply cooperation are eligible for a government guarantee. For the guarantee, PLN's president director must submit an application letter to the minister of finance, who will issue the implementation provisions for the guarantee.
Regulation 4/2016 shows the government's support for the prioritisation of new and renewable energy for the implementation of the EID and the provision of easy licence and permit processes through the Investment Coordinating Board's one-stop services. The regulation also stipulates the government's prioritisation of land procurement for the EID.
