Nobel 2007 Peace Prize Recipient and former United States Vice President, Al Gore predicts that Indonesia could become the super power for electricity from geothermal energy and it could be a surplus for the Indonesian Economy. This was said by Mr. Gore in his speech at the opening of “The Climate Project Asia Pacific Summit”.

The former Vice President saw that Indonesia is the 3rd largest country that produces electricity from geothermal energy and Indonesia is a country with a unique profile of carbon emissions because most come from forestry and peat forest. “Scientists and experts are widely known to say that the production of electricity from geothermal sources can present the extent of carbon free electricity in the world today”, explained Mr. Gore.

Mr. Gore is also a recipient of an Oscar through a documentary film titled “An Inconvenient Truth”. (source: Kompas.com).
