Indonesia’s economy, the 16th largest in the world, has grown at a rate of 6% in recent years. Yet, its conventional domestic energy production is no longer sufficient to support its economic growth. More than one third of Indonesia’s population currently lacks access to electricity, and for those that do, brownouts are commonplace.
Chevron is one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies. The company is the world leader in geothermal energy production used for electricity and has developed 25% of the world’s capacity in this area.
Geothermal energy is a reliable source of power that can reduce the need for imported fuels for power generation. It’s also renewable because it is based on a practically limitless resource — natural heat within the earth.
