About the Event
Electricity for public consumption has started its history in Indonesia when a private Dutch company, NV. NIGN, which was originally involved in gas sector, decided to expand its activities into the generation of electricity for public consumption. In 1927, the Dutch government established Waterkraft Bedrijven (“LWB”) to manage hydro-electric plants in West Java,East Java, Bengkulu and North Sulawesi, along with a steam- generated power plant in Jakarta. It was then followed by a number of municipalities whom also set up their own municipal power companies.
