Hydropower, Grid Connected Electricity
Indonesia has great potential for hydro energy resources that are not yet fully exploited. According to the national energy policy, the potential capacity of hydro resources in Indonesia is 75,000 MW of which only 3,200 MW has so far been used to generate electricity (including captive power and private entities). The project is a new run-off-river hydropower plant in North Sumatra Province in Indonesia. The key purpose of the project is to utilize the hydrological resources of the Sibuluan River and another three lateral tributaries, thus a renewable source of energy, generating zero emission electricity to be transmitted to the Sumatra grid (hereafter referred to as the grid) through the Sibolga PLN substations. The electricity currently generated by the grid is relatively carbon intensive. It will displace fossil-fuel-based power plants and reduce the associated GHG emissions with fossil-fuel-based power plant in Sumatra grid. Therefore, the project activity is reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The total installed capacity of the Project is 50 MW, comprised of a 33 MW and a 17 MW turbine, with annual energy generation of the project of 214,800 MWh, in which all of power generated will be delivered to the Sumatra grid. The electricity currently generated by the grid is relatively carbon intensive.
