Jambi (ANTARA News) - Jambi`s calculated and exploitable coal potential with calories of 4,500 to 5,400 kkal/kg reached 500 million tons.

This vast energy potential needs to be exploited and used for economic development, especially electric energy generation, Jambi Governor H Zulkifli Nurdin said here on Friday.

Jambi is still facing a power shortage for industrial development and enhancing the welfare of the people.

The local administration, he added, is also expected to lure investors interested in building coal-fired power plants in the region, which would accelerate economic development.

Building power plants in the entrance of prospective coal mines would also open up employment to many people, he added.

All these deserve serious thoughts and considerations, especially within the context of seeking alternative fuels, as prices of fuel oils have been constantly increasing.

Jambi is currently building a hydro-electric power plant (PLTA) in Kerinci, and a gas-fired power plant (PLTG) in Tanjab Barat, and still considering building a coal-fired power plant (PLTU) in the region. (*)
