The Indonesian archipelago lies between the "Ring of Fire" which is so rich in geothermal energy potential sources, even recognized including the largest in the world. However, the utilization of such energy is still scarce.

"Currently the utilization for electricity is still 6% of total geothermal energy source potential of more thean 28 GW, hence the chances are still very large for the development of new GPP (geothermal power plant)", said Head of GPP Program, M.A.M Oktaufik on (March 5).

The opportunity could be seen as a huge market potential to build a new domestic manufacturing industry. Until now the existing GPP is still dominated by imported technology, with low local content level (below 20%). "In fact, there is no national manufacturing industry that produces GPP technology to meet the increasing national demand", said Oktaufik.

"In The National Electricity Supply Business Plan, the development of New GPP has been planned until 2030 about five times of the current capacity, i.e from 1.7 GW in 2017 to 9.3 GW in 2030”, he added.
