Background of The Project
Indonesia is rich in geothermal resource because it is located in the world-famous large geodynamic zone accompanying many active volcanoes. Indonesian Government has established a plan to enhance the electrical power plant capacity by geothermal energy to 9,500MW by the year 2025. This policy is aimed to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), the most significant greenhouse gas, and enhance the use of renewable resources for electrical power generation to prevent the global warming and construct sustainable society co-existent with the environment. The desired value, 9,500MW is considerably high, which is around eight times of the geothermal power plant capacity as of 2010.
