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.

Solar Energy In Indonesia: Potential and Outlook

Indonesia has significant potential for solar energy. However, it has remained largely untapped. The country's 2030 and 2060 decarbonisation goals heavily rely on the industry's rapid expansion.

The Impact on Japan as President Biden Halts LNG Exports From New Plants

While President Biden’s decision doesn’t threaten energy security and short-term deliveries, it is yet another nail in the coffin of the theory that natural gas is the reliable “bridge fuel” the world needs.

Climate Change in Indonesia: A Nation’s Response and Challenges

Climate change is a major concern for Indonesia. Its extensive coastline, tropical climate and low human development index scores are major risk factors. In response, the country has started implementing long-term climate goals and looking for international assistance in funding its programs.

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.

Climate Change Litigation in Australia: Companies Could Get Three-year Pass

Climate change litigation has taken centre stage again in Australia. The country's Treasury is considering a new proposal limiting climate-related litigation against companies for three years. However, is this the best way forward? The country remains one of the worst polluters on the planet.

Disadvantages of Non-renewable Energy Sources: A Global Challenge

The vast majority of the world's energy comes from fossil fuels. However, these non-renewable energy sources have disadvantages, ranging from economic volatility to direct environmental impacts. Renewables are an alternative that can overcome many of these challenges.

LNG’s Carbon Quandary is a Call for Reassessment in the Energy Transition [Op-Ed]

At COP28, the pivotal language to steer away from fossil fuels and achieve net zero by 2050 is a historic step on the right path. However, the communique also features a step backwards in acknowledging a role for transitional fuels in facilitating the energy transition and ensuring energy security. This calls for a reassessment of public and private sector policies to align with global net-zero objectives.

Top Wind Energy Companies in India 2024

India is aiming to triple its wind energy capacity by 2030. This will require significant growth within the wind sector and supportive government policies. The sector is on track to grow at an 8% compound annual growth rate over the next decade.

Renewable energy has grown significantly over the last decade in the US, and predictions show this trend will speed up in the coming years. As a result, major renewable energy companies have spread across the US energy sector.

Asian Countries Take Advantage of Floating Solar Power Plant

Land acquisition has often become a problem for renewable energy developers in Asian countries. Due to a huge population and growing energy needs, renewable energy acceleration plans have faced the need for land for housing and food availability. Therefore, Indonesia built floating solar power plants (PLTS) to overcome this issue.

Future of Renewable Energy in the World: Massive Growth Expected

IEA notes that almost all new clean energy capacity added in 2023 had lower generation costs than new coal and gas plants, and 75% of new solar and wind plants offered cheaper power than existing fossil fuel facilities.

Indonesia Energy Transition Outlook 2024: In Light of the JETP

Whoever holds power after Indonesia’s February elections has a chance to alter the country's future. Projects, like increased coal and gas capacity and expensive, untested technologies, should remain on paper, while solar and wind must become the priority.
