Geothermal Capacity Building Indonesia - Netherlands
The Geothermal Capacity Building Programme - Indonesia-Netherlands (GEOCAP) is an international collaboration between Indonesian and Dutch entities with the goal to develop intimately linked geothermal programmes for education and training, research and subsurface databases.
This Public-Private-Partnership blends the capabilities of Universities, Knowledge Institutes and Industry Partners for the benefit of all involved, and to reach the common goal of supporting the Government of Indonesia in their quest to increase utilization of their geo-energy resources.
In Indonesia, there are not enough skilled personnel to fill the existing gaps in the expanding geothermal sector. Hence a nation-wide capacity building programme is needed to continue to develop the required volume of skilled workers. The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the Netherlands Embassy, has started to support this effort by funding the GEOCAP Programme.
