Coaltrans Asia returns to the beautiful island of Bali this September, offering three unmissable days of expert insights, networking and deal-making. Join 1200+ senior industry delegates spanning the region’s entire coal value chain. From coal producers and miners to equipment and service providers, consultants, researchers and end-users, Coaltrans Asia gathers all the key players in one place.
It's a golden opportunity to hear critical market insights from our expert speakers, connect with industry leaders, forge relationships and negotiate vital deals to secure energy supply. With extended lunch and coffee breaks, plus two evening drinks receptions, bookable private rooms and a large meeting space for impromptu conversations, Coaltrans Asia offers a wealth of formal and social meeting opportunities to get business done!
Our curated agenda will as ever, focus on the current key topics facing the industry in Asia. Bringing a dedicated half-day Met Coal Forum, we will also explore Indonesia’s domestic successes and challenges, market insights and outlooks for supply and demand both globally and in the region, progress in the energy transition, regional exporter and buyer insights and a special focus on freight, shipping and Indonesian logistics. And - thanks to our long-standing partnership with APBI-ICMA - we have exclusive access to government speakers and stakeholders.

11:45-12:15 Coal selling price to domestic market: your questions answered
According to PLN's RUPTL, the coal energy mix will remain over 50% until 2030. This demonstrates that with this pricing continuing in effect, the energy transition will become increasingly challenging. Assuming this price is still in effect, MIP will play an essential part in making up the difference.  Is there still a need for a price benchmark for coal supplies for domestic electricity?
Delegates are invited to submit questions in advance for the speakers to consider and address.
