Indonesia’s PLN opens first-ever green hydrogen plant
The plant is capable of producing 51 million tonnes of hydrogen per year.
State-owned energy company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) launched the first green hydrogen plant (GHP) of Indonesia.
Located in Pluit, Jakarta, over the Muara Karang Steam Gas Power Plant (PLTGU) area, the hydrogen plant is 100% sourced from new and renewable energy (EBT) and could produce 51 million tonnes of hydrogen per year.
Green hydrogen is seen as one of Indonesia’s major initiatives for energy transition to adapt as a major source of energy for transportation and achieve net-zero emissions by 2060.
PLN President Darmawan Prasodjo said the GHP serves to respond to the challenges in transitioning.
“The government is committed to developing this green hydrogen plant and continues to carry out more comprehensive studies and policy formulation to encourage green hydrogen to develop in Indonesia,” Director General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Yudo Dwinanda Priaadi said during his speech.
