Indonesia has rapidly growing energy needs and they are looking to nuclear energy

Indonesia needs to double its electricity generation capacity over the next ten years, and continue that expansion beyond 2050, to improve access to electricity and meet the demand of its growing economy and population.

Indonesia’s National Atomic Energy Agency (Batan) is promoting the introduction of nuclear power plants to help meet the county’s demand for power. It envisages the start-up of conventional large light-water reactors on the populous islands of Bali, Java, Madura and Sumatra from 2027 onwards. In addition, it is planning small HTGRs (up to 100 MWe) for deployment on Kalimantan, Sulawesi and other islands to supply power and heat for industrial use.

Indonesia is working with the nuclear startup Thorcon to develop and deploy molten salt nuclear reactors.
