Indonesian energy and Mineral Resources Minister Darwin Zahedy Saleh said Indonesia had geothermal energy resources of up to 28,000 megawatt with a potential power generating capacity of 13,440 MW, the Antara news agency reported.

"We also have reserves reaching 14,473 MW which are scattered in 265 locations throughout Indonesia," the minister said here on Thursday

Speaking at the opening of a seminar themed "Acceleration of Geothermal Development to Support the Second 10,000 MW Power Project," the minister said that four percent of the existing geothermal potential or 1,189 MW were already being used to generate electricity.

"The plant with the biggest designed capacity is located in West Java, namely 1,057 MW or 20 percent of the reserves, Central Java 60 MW, North Sulawesi 60 MW and North Sumatra 12 MW," Saleh said.

He said that based the law, the government had designated 22 geothermal work mining locations (WKP), namely 8 in Sumara, 7 in Java, 2 in Sulawesi, 3 in Nusa Tenggara and 2 in Maluku.
