The Indonesian government is working to increase the share of renewable energies in the electricity mix in order to cope with the rapidly growing electricity consumption. At present, the share of renewables in the electricity mix is 5-6%. An increase to 19% is planned by 2019 and 25% by 2025.
At the end of 2014, according to the Indonesian Ministry of Energy, renewable energies with a total capacity of almost 11,000 MW were installed. 70% accounted for hydropower, the remainder was divided into roughly equal parts of geothermal energy and biomass.
