Indonesian hydro

Indonesia has a lot of untapped hydropower potential, though development of new resources seeks to remedy that.
Total installed capacity

5 886 MW

Long-term sustainability target

23% renewables by 2025; net zero by 2060

Indonesia has tremendous potential for hydropower. There is already 5 886 MW of installed capacity, which generates over 17 TWh of electricity per year, but Indonesia’s potential is estimated at 75 000 MW. The development of hydropower will be driven in part by the government’s target to increase the share of renewables in the country’s total energy use to 23% by 2025.
