Energy needs have increased each year along with economic growth and increasing population number. Indonesia still relies on fossil fuels as an energy source that dominates the national energy mix. Fossil energy has an impact on greenhouse gas emissions that threatens climate change. The role of the government through energy diversification policies has not provided maximum contribution to fulfil energy needs. This study aims to analyze the policy of developing renewable energy in reducing greenhouse gas emissions based on content and context policy, using qualitative method to explain and describe implementation of the renewable energy policy. Data were derived from primary and secondary sources which are conducted in the period of October – December 2018. The result shows that there were several factors from the content and context of policy that have a significant correlation in the renewable energy policy implementation. The political environment has a role in the implementation of policy content related to the benefits that will be perceived by the community. Other policies that influence renewable energy consumption like fuel and electricity subsidy and allocation of resources are needed to implement the policy.
