Wind Energy In Indonesia: Slow Growth, Promising Future

Indonesia has a significant potential for wind energy, yet the country only has two utility-scale wind farms running. This is primarily the result of high initial investment costs and a need for more supportive regulation for development. These policies must improve to help the country capitalise on its wind energy potential and meet its decarbonisation goals.

The Difference Between Renewable And Non-renewable Sources of Energy

Renewable energy sources are gaining momentum in the global energy landscape and are expected to make up most of the new energy additions in the coming decades. Understanding how renewables differ from non-renewables is crucial to understanding this necessary transition.
