Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Darwin Zahedy Saleh said Indonesia was blessed with geothermal energy resources of up to 28,000 MW with a potential power generating capacity of 13,440 MW.
"We also have reserves reaching 14,473 MW, which are scattered in 265 places across Indonesia," Darwin told at the opening of a seminar themed "Acceleration of Geothermal Development to Support the Second 10,000 MW Power Project" in Bali.

He said only 4 % of the existing geothermal potential or 1,189 MW was being used to generate electricity.
"The plant with the biggest designed capacity is located in West Java, namely 1,057 MW or 20 % of the reserves, Central Java 60 MW, North Sulawesi 60 MW and North Sumatra 12 MW," Saleh said.

He said in accordance with the law, the government had designated 22 geothermal work mining sites (WKP), 8 in Sumatra, 7 in Java, 2 in Sulawesi, 3 in Nusa Tenggara and the remaining 2 in Maluku.
Bali is expected to host the World Geothermal Congress on April 25-30,2010. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is slated to open the event.
