Masdar enters geothermal market 

The company invested in one of the largest geothermal players globally.

Abu Dhabi-based Masdar has made a strategic investment in Indonesia’s Pertamina Geothermal Energy (PGE), marking the company’s entry into the geothermal sector.

In a statement, Masdar CEO Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi said the strategic investment will complement the company’s strong footprint in the world’s second-largest geothermal market.

Indonesia, which aims to reach net-zero emissions by 2060, has an installed geothermal capacity of 2.8 gigawatts (GW) in 2022, with PGE holding a capacity of over 1.87 GW. The country’s total capacity is expected to grow to 6.2 GW by 2030.
