Energy for a country's government is like the existence of blood in the human body. Energy is not only needed to maintain a country to carry out its daily activities but is also very necessary to develop the country's economy and defense. Energy has even become an essential component for the existence of the state and a prerequisite for the welfare of the nation. A country needs to provide primary energy sources and ensure their availability and sustainability, both from fossil resources and renewable resources at the lowest possible cost without reducing environmental quality.
Based on Indonesia Government Regulation 79/2014, the direction of the national energy policy has been outlined based on the principles of fairness, sustainability and environmental insight to create energy independence and national energy security. It was followed by the enactment of Presidential Decree Nr. 22/2017 concerning the National Energy General Plan (RUEN), which acts an implementation of the Central Government's policy in terms of managing national energy independent, integrated, efficient, and effective. However, the factual conditions indicated barriers to achieve these management objectives.
The real problem faced by the Indonesian government today is the lack of primary energy sources that can guarantee future energy needs. Based on information published by ESDM, in 2017, from economic view point, Indonesia's energy needs are dominated by the transportation sector (by 362 MBOE), followed by the industrial sector and the household sector with consumption of each sector of 231 MBOE and 120 MBOE. Thus, the most significant energy supply needed for the transportation sector, which is in the form of fuel, where the primary energy source comes from fossil fuels, which are getting less numerous. Meanwhile, industry and households energy needs are mainly in the form of electricity, which until now its primary energy source is still dominated by petroleum and coal. On the other side, to ensure national energy security, the aspect of energy security and defense must also receive serious attention. It is undoubtedly that there is strong relation between national security and the availability of natural resources for energy consumption. In the case of the military, the military acts with the assumption that energy is cheap and has easy access to operations both domestically and abroad. It is interesting to see the potential development of the concept of single fuel to facilitate the distribution chain in combat operations
Thus, given that fossil energy sources will be exhausted, in order to guarantee domestic energy supply the Indonesian government must immediately increase the contribution of renewable energy sources in the national energy mix to replace the role of fossil energy sources
