What is Indonesia main source of energy?
Fossil fuels like oil, gas and carbon are the primary energy supply in Indonesia, while renewable energy, principally hydro and geothermal, made up a small percentage of its energy mix supply.
What renewable energy resources are used in Indonesia?
In fact, Indonesia has the potential to generate 788,000 megawatts (MW) of power from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, tidal, and geothermal. This is more than 14 times the country’s current electricity consumption.
Is salt water renewable or nonrenewable?
Desalination of seawater is considered a renewable source of water, although reducing its dependence on fossil fuel energy is needed for it to be fully renewable.

Why does Indonesia use hydropower?
Indonesia promotes hydropower to create the demand for industrial development. The Indonesian government’s strategy for hydropower development aims at boosting industrial growth, reducing carbon emissions and achieving energy independence, writes Honourable Bambang P.
Which country is the most renewable energy?
Leading countries in installed renewable energy capacity worldwide in 2020 (in gigawatts)
|Characteristic||Capacity in gigawatts|
How much of the world’s energy is renewable 2020?
Accordingly, the share of renewables in global electricity generation jumped to 29% in 2020, up from 27% in 2019. Bioenergy use in industry grew 3%, but was largely offset by a decline in biofuels as lower oil demand also reduced the use of blended biofuels.
