Bisnis, JAKARTA — The government's ambition to increase geothermal investment are still unabated despite limited development and utilization of geothermal energy as a source of electricity in the country.

Indonesia's geothermal reserves potential is more significant than other new and renewable energy (NRE) sources. According to a study in 2020 by Think Geo Energy, Indonesia ranks second in the world in terms of geothermal resources, with a potential of up to 23.76 gigawatts (GW).

However, the installed capacity from geothermal sources is currently only about 2,175 MW. Nevertheless, the government is determined to keep boosting investment in clean energy.

Various efforts and strategies are being employed to attract investors into the geothermal sector as geothermal energy has become a long-term government policy to reduce carbon emissions.
