Indonesia will need at least Rp 200 trillion (US$16.48 billion) in new investments a year in order to meet its long-term demand for power, which is expected to double to 10,000 megawatts (MW) a year within the next 15 years, a senior official of the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry said.

Energy and Mineral Resources deputy minister Susilo Siswoutomo said on Wednesday that the additional power supply needed by Indonesia to support its economic growth was projected to reach 5,700 MW a year until 2022.
