BMI View: Growing international pressure on Indonesia to adopt a more stringent environmental policy will provide a boost to the country's renewable energy industry and facilitate greater inflows of investment from international financial institutions and governments. The country's underdeveloped geothermal sector will benefit significantly, and we maintain our view that Indonesia will emerge as Asia's largest geothermal market by the end of our forecast period in 2024.

BMI Industry Forecasts
Historic data series (2010-2012) and forecasts to end-2018 for electricity generation (TWh) and electricity generating capacity (MW) for each individual renewables sector present in the country.
These in turn are broken down into:
Electricity Generation: Overall capacity (TWh), growth % change year-on-year, KWh per capita, % of Total Non-Hydropower renewables generation, % of total electricity generation.
Electricity Capacity: Overall capacity (MW), growth % change year-on-year, % of non-hydroelectric renewables capacity and % of total capacity.
These forecasts are in turn supported by explicit assumptions, in conjunction with analysis of the key risks to the main forecast.
