PEKANBARU - The government continues to utilize the potential of natural resources, especially renewable energy (EBT) to meet local energy needs. However, an important step that needs to be done is to clarify and improve the status of potential data, to become a proven reserve that is ready to be utilized to support the region's energy availability.

This was conveyed by Arcandra Tahar, Deputy Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) at the Great Deliberation V of the Unity Piaman Family of 2018 at Pekanbaru Riau, Saturday (7/4).


"Our natural resource reserves need to be scrutinized more deeply, if one declares our world's fifth largest resource, it is (still) unverified, still potential, not yet spare, the reserves are subdivided again, some are called possible reserve, some are called probable reserve, some are called proven reserves, "says Arcandra.


Furthermore, Arcandra said, talking about reserves, when called the potential we have to think further. "Where is the data? How about the calculation? One day we can get the data, the potential of sea water / the waves of hundreds of Giga Watt (GW) .I can see, from come  the data, in fact the way the calculation of a statement then multiplied the length of the beach. this,  many found like this"he said.


A very clear case example is petroleum. "Do we still believe our country is oil-rich? Proven reserve is only 3.3 billion barrels or about 0.2 percent of the world's oil reserves.Our production is 800,000 barrels per day (bph) .We may be thinking in a few years our reserves are depleted, if we do not find another reserve, the oil will not be exhausted, the existing human capability is currently only able to take up to 40-50% .There are still 60-50% more down there, which has not been taken, "explains Arcandra.


With the condition of the amount of fossil reserves, Arcandra emphasized the importance of non-fossil energy use in order to meet national energy needs. "Are we going to harness energy beyond fossils? Yes! Non fossils are a necessity," he asserted.


"In the period 2014-2016, contract signing with PLN for Renewable Energy (EBT) is only about 14 or 15, by 2017 there are 70, a four-fold increase.In 2017 we encourage EBT .If we say no breakthrough, which  from  this data? Renewable energy we are pushing, commitment 1.2 GW signed last year so please corrected if somebody said the Government did not make a breakthrough, "he said again. (Kay)
