Indonesia has the highest geothermal capacity under development: Fitch

Of the 41 projects under development in Asia, 26 were from Indonesia.

Indonesia accounted for the largest share in the geothermal pipeline globally, followed by Kenya, according to a report by Fitch Solutions.

Fitch said Indonesia and Kenya are the primary reasons why Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) have the largest amount of geothermal capacity under development.

“This can also largely be attributed to the strong geothermal potential in the Great Rift Valley and Pacific Ring Of Fire present in these two regions,” it said.
