Why Renewable Energy would be a Great Investment for Indonesia

“Why should Indonesia invest more in renewable energy?”

 

Indonesia is a nation whose size is only matched by its diversity. An archipelago comprising of 17,000 islands with over 242 million people speaking over 300 different languages, it truly is a behemoth to behold. Currently, Indonesia generates around 84% of its energy from fossil fuel resources. But increasing its portfolio of renewable energy could be greatly beneficial to it.

 

 

  1. Ideal Climate for Renewable Energy

 

Being a chain of islands near the equator in the Southern Pacific Ocean, Indonesia has a great opportunity to tap into solar and offshore wind energy.

 

  1. Distribution

Since Indonesia is composed of a series of islands which are subject to typhoons, having a more distributed energy mix would be very helpful. Islands can generate their own electricity, microgrids can kick on during storms (something that would also be helpful to places with similar geography like Puerto Rico)

 

  1. Lower Pollution

Air pollution causes a myriad of public health problems which dampen the national economy. By switching to renewable energy this issue can be averted.

 

And these are just some of the reasons why Indonesia should switch to Renewable Energy!
