“INDONESIA’S ENERGY REVIVAL”
DOMESTIC GROWTH AND POWER PROVISIONS A VITAL KEY ENERGY SOVEREIGNTY, AN AFFIRMATIVE GOVERNMENT COMMITMENT
Within the next five years Indonesia will require at least 35,000 Mega Watts of additional power and electricity. The nature of energy-sufficiency is considered a driving force for socio-economic expansion for both industry and investment, unemployment rates and job creation, and to other domestic economic factors. Over 650,000 direct and 3 million indirect workers would benefit from such an increase in power supply. And the uptake of domestic components could reach 40%, equivalent to 440 trillion Rupiah.
