New Indonesia Geothermal Power Plants Leads Push for Eco-Friendly Energy

The government has launched a massive Indonesia geothermal power plant project, as it aims to shift from coal towards more environmentally friendly resources to generate electricity for the country.

Last week in West Java, President Joko Widodo officially launched the construction of six new Indonesia geothermal power plants spread across several provinces in Indonesia, while state-owned oil and gas company Pertamina said that it was ready to spend up to Rp 33 trillion (US$ 2.5 billion) to finance the development of geothermal electricity plants up to 2019.

The geothermal projects are hoped to help the government achieve its ambitious target of generating a total of 35,000 MW in the next five years, as well as ease its heavy reliance on coal. (See: Electrifying Indonesia)
