This chapter compares drivers of energy use and CO2 emissions in China and Indonesia. Given the potential for technological lock-in associated with investments in the energy sector and in industry, it is timely to consider what lessons Indonesia may be able to draw from China. Chinese and Indonesian governance performance are not as different as they sometimes seem. Moreover, while the countries have different aggregate technology profiles, they are technologically similar in industries such as cement, the focus in this chapter. Indonesia also has an extensive history with activist industrial policies. The big difference is that in addition to directly promoting improved energy efficiency with policy measures and price reforms, China has indirectly promoted improved efficiency with industrial development policies that have increased market pressures and enabled enterprises to improve technological capabilities.

Keywords:   cement industry, Indonesia, China, industrial policies, technology capabilities
