Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), Indonesian state-owned electricity company, will issue bids for the development of 21 new renewable energy (RE) generating projects during the next ten years in Indonesia.
The planned projects have a total generation capacity of 1.2 GW and the development of these projects will be under the 2021-2030 electricity procurement plan (RUPTL). The RE projects include six hydro power plants with a combined capacity of 235 MW as well as seven geothermal power plants with a total capacity of 660 MW. Over the next ten years, the Government of Indonesia is targeting the development of power plants with a total capacity of up to 41 GW, comprising 21 GW of RE and 19.6 GW of fossil fuel-based generating capacity. The initiative is estimated to add 51.6 per cent more renewable generating capacity to the national grid.
