  • Indonesia : Indonesia Targets On-site Power Growth
    July 24, 2014
    Energy production and distribution are often the bedrock of sustainable economic development, and for an archipelago such as Indonesia, on-site power and small grids will always be the most sensible option. The government of southeast Asia's most populous country has released a Masterplan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia's Economic Development (MP3EI) whose goal is developed economy status by 2025. It has identified Indonesia's patchy energy infrastructure as a 'primary obstacle' to achieving this goal. Electricity supply in the greater Jakarta area is rarely interrupted, but in the provinces - particularly outside Java - lengthy power outages are commonplace, with many industrial plants, from palm oil mills to coal mines, requiring on-site power generation.
