The Paris Agreement calls for universal action to tackle climate change. Accordingly, countries have laid out their climate mitigation pledges and strategies on their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Most of the submitted NDCs include climate actions in the energy sector as a part of a national strategies in achieving their Paris climate targets. This paper assesses the alignment of the Indonesian power sector's pathway with its Paris Agreement targets. Furthermore, we analyze the role of climate change mitigation in the power sector to Indonesia's SDGs targets. We also identify how Covid-19 might affect the power sector development and subsequently the sector's contribution to NDC. We review the literature and energy sector's publications and apply the SDG interaction framework developed by Nilsson (2016) for our analysis. Our results indicate how the power sector's pathway contributes to both NDC and SDGs targets.
