Renewable Energy Expansion in Indonesia

  • Publish Date: Posted about 1 month ago

As Indonesia embraces a green future, the strategic shift towards renewable energy is not just transforming the landscape of electricity generation but is also creating burgeoning opportunities in the job market. With the government's commitment to achieving 23% of total electricity generation from renewables by 2025 and 31% by 2050, the sector's growth is inevitable and imminent.

The Current Landscape

The Indonesian government has set ambitious targets for renewable energy integration into the national power grid. As of now, approximately 13% of Indonesia’s electricity is sourced from renewable energies, such as hydroelectric and geothermal power. The country's potential for solar energy is particularly striking, estimated at around 207 GW, making it a key area of focus for future development.

Impact on Hiring and Talent Trends

The push towards renewable energy is expected to significantly influence hiring trends across various sectors related to energy. There is an increasing demand for professionals in project management, engineering, operations, and technical disciplines, all crucial for driving the sector forward.
