CLASP and Ipsos conducted a first-of-its-kind national survey of household appliance use in Indonesia. This extensive survey provides insights into appliance ownership and usage at the household level to support energy efficiency policies that maximize energy and CO2 reductions and cost savings for household consumers, manufacturers, and the nation.
The survey team conducted the survey in both urban and rural districts in all of Indonesia’s 34 provinces. The team visited a total of 5,443 households, interviewing the key person in the household aware of appliance usage and the average monthly electricity and other fuel bills. The survey represents the electrified household population in Indonesia. Key information gathered included ownership of the appliances, specifications of the appliances, and time and duration of usage.
The survey found that all electrified households have lighting, with an average of 5.4 lighting points (lamps and tubes). For other common appliances, the survey found that televisions (TVs) were owned by 93% of households, cell phones by 78%, electric irons by 70%, refrigerators by 69%, rice cookers by 69%, and electric fans by 64%. Other appliances were less common, with penetration rates below 40%, and include water pumps at 35%, washing machines at 29%, and blenders at 27%. Only 5% of households nationwide own ACs. CLASP identified the top 10 electricity-using appliances responsible for 98% of Indonesia’s residential electricity consumption.
