Geothermal, a Powerful New Hope (The Worldfolio)

As Indonesia works to complement its hydrocarbons base with a mix of renewable sources, innovative companies like Star Energy have risen to the occasion.

A Joint Operation Contract (JOC) with the national oil and gas company, Pertamina, gives Star Energy the right to develop up to 400 MW of electricity in power hungry West Java.  “Star Energy took over the Wayang Windu project in West Java to operate geothermal assets,” Mr. Suparman explains. “We have since worked to develop this site and in February 2009, we had a major breakthrough when we built our own additional geothermal power unit.
