Tehran, Jakarta to Bolster Cooperation in Renewables

Iran and Indonesia have explored grounds for energy cooperation, especially in the development of renewables.

Indonesian Minister of Village, Development of Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration Marwan Jafar, who was speaking at a meeting with Iran’s ambassador in Jakarta, Valiollah Mohammadi Nasrabadi, referred to the resumption of relations between the two countries after the removal of sanctions in mid-January, and said the ties are expected to significantly expand, particularly in the renewable energy sector, Shana reported.

“Indonesia is currently increasing its capacity in the production of clean energies, including hydroelectric energy, wind, geothermal and biofuels,” Jafar added.

The Indonesian minister stressed that the country has devised plans to develop rural infrastructure to deliver more electricity to villages.

Nasrabadi also pointed to the energy potentials of Iran and Indonesia for expanding cooperation in the rural energy sector, saying Iran has the experience of setting up geothermal power plants with an electricity production capacity of up to 25 megawatts.

The Iranian official said as Jakarta aims to diversify its energy supplies and employ clean renewable energies, Iran can cooperate with the country in materializing its goals.

Iran plans to raise power output from renewables to 1,000 MW by 2021.
