Indonesia National Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmaps

Indonesia has developed a National Hydrogen Strategy Roadmap to meet its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) obligations under the Paris Agreement. The roadmap aims to leverage the potential of hydrogen in the country’s energy mix, promote an equitable energy transition, and utilize its abundant renewable resources. The roadmap emphasizes the integration of renewable energy sources, particularly solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal power, into Indonesia’s hydrogen economy. This approach. The strategy focuses on collaboration among governmental organizations, private businesses, academia, and communities to advance hydrogen-based technology and sustainable growth. The roadmap’s vision of a hydrogen ecosystem encompasses the entire value chain and prioritizes production efficiency and technological innovation, with calculated that Indonesia shows 32.8 million tons of hydrogen demand in 2060. By embracing cutting-edge technology, Indonesia aims to compete in the global hydrogen industry and seize new economic opportunities. The strategy also incorporates a circular economy approach to minimize waste and maximize resource utilization in hydrogen production processes, promoting a sustainable and accountable supply chain. International cooperation is crucial for the success of the roadmap. Indonesia can benefit from collaborating with global leaders in hydrogen technology, facilitating knowledge sharing, technology transfer, and accelerated development. The roadmap also highlights the importance of a just energy transition, ensuring equal access to the benefits of a hydrogen-based economy. It aims to empower vulnerable groups, generate green jobs, and improve the livelihoods of local populations, particularly in rural and underserved areas. Indonesia envisions the use of hydrogen in key sectors such as transportation, manufacturing, and energy production, positioning itself as a regional hydrogen hub. To ensure a reliable hydrogen supply across the country of Indonesia, the roadmap emphasizes the development of a robust hydrogen utilization in power generation, chemical industries, including transportation infrastructure, refuelling stations and pipelines, including stationary. The strategy emphasizes the importance of a just transition, highlighting the need to ensure that vulnerable groups are not left behind in the shift towards a hydrogen-based economy. The report also notes that Indonesia’s choices will have a significant bearing on the world’s energy markets and on international efforts to reach collective climate goals in 2060.
