PLN report shows Indonesia has potential for significant hydroelectric growth

JAKARTA, Indonesia 1/25/12 (PennWell) -- State-owned utility PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) has identified 96 potential hydroelectric power sites in Indonesia, sources report.

Of those locations, about 60% would be developed by PLN, while the remaining would be offered to independent power producers.

According to the Jakarta Post, the sites have a potential total capacity of 12,800 MW, although data provided by the country's Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry says Indonesia has an overall capacity of 75,670 MW of hydropower. Currently, hydropower accounts for only 5,705 MW.

The PLN report reflects Indonesia's recent emphasis on hydroelectric power. In the past year alone, the country has moved forward on projects that include 1,030-MW Upper Cisokan, an 88-MW project in Aceh province, 187-MW Jatluhur, and 90-MW Karebbe.
