Indonesia considers 40 GW of nuclear capacity in 2060

26 Nov 2021

Indonesia is considering developping nuclear as the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) reviews the General Plan for the Provision of Electricity (RUPTL). The first nuclear reactor of the country could be commissioned by at least 2049 but development could be accelerated to reach 40 GW of nuclear capacity in 2060.

Indonesia has no nuclear power capacity but used to plan nuclear developments. In late 2015, the ESDM announced that a previous plan worth US$8bn to operate four nuclear power plants with a cumulated capacity of 6 GW by 2025 would be cancelled and that Indonesia would not resort to nuclear power to meet its 137 GW power capacity target by 2025 and its 430 GW target by 2050. However, rising power demand led the ESDM to revive nuclear projects after 2025 in April 2021.
