Particular expertise in thermal generation, combined heat and power (CHP), transmission and distribution, and asset management will be essential.

In addition to PLN the mission will also have a chance to meet with PT Paiton Energy an independent power producer, PT Medco Power which is involved in conventional as well as renewable energy (geothermal and biofuels, hydro) production and PT Wijaya Karya a local engineering, procurement and construction company.
