Renewable energy potential in Indonesia is enormous, such as solar, wind, hydro, biogas, biomass, etc. Indonesia is developing renewable energy to reduce fossil energy. The price of fossil energy always be higher and the resource always be lower every year. So it’s one of reason why Indonesia develops renewable energy, it’s future energy. Below is renewable energy potential in Indonesia.
Indonesian Government has made the target of projection of energy supply to develop renewable energy and reduce fossil energy. Oil will be reduced, whereas gas, coal, and renewable energy will be grow up. Especially for renewable energy, will be grow up from 5% become 17% of energy needs in 2025.
Below is projection of new and renewable energy supply and share.
And after 2025 new and renewable energy in Indonesia will supply more than 25% of energy needs in Indonesia.
