Besides being able to sustain a sustainable life, renewable energy also promises business benefits. Although it requires a large investment, the prospect is believed to be bright in the future.
Indonesia is one of the countries that has huge renewable energy potential. For example, it has the highest geothermal reserves in Southeast Asia, with estimates at 27 points with total electricity capacity reaching 27 Gigawatts (GW). Hydro energy, especially in Central and Eastern Indonesia, has a total capacity of around 20 GW.
Biomass which is a waste from most industries also has great potential as well as being a solution. The geographical area of Indonesia’s coastline of 81 thousand km also has enormous wind energy potential, likewise with solar energy.
Business development in the renewable energy sector is needed to anticipate the occurrence of an energy crisis in the future.
