Abstract
This study aims to determine the tax incentive policy associated with the emission carbon crediting system in order to encourage the geothermal energy development for power generation. This research used qualitative approach with descriptive method. The data was obtained through literature study (secondary data). The results showed that tax incentive policy related to emission carbon crediting system to encourage the geothermal energy development for power plant currently is not optimal. Utilization of geothermal power for generators reduces CO2 emission and saves fossil energy. Geothermal development supports mitigation on climate change by reducing the GHG emission. Providing tax incentives by considering emission carbon crediting system allows geothermal investments to grow to meet the electricity needs for the people.
