(Narration) The scarcity of energy and natural resources has become the world’s biggest issue that hat is very essential for sustaining the living of mankind. The worldwide consumption of energy is very high, and it doesn’t go hand in hand with the number of resources and production. Energy security has always been crucial for the economic development of human societies and are important both as intermediate inputs for production and transport and as final outputs that are necessary for basic human welfare and the economic growth (FDI) of that country. Energy security, as defined by the World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Agenda Council on Energy Security, is the reliable, stable and sustainable supply of energy at affordable prices and at an acceptable social cost. Therefore, energy security can only be achieved efficiently through global cooperation, mutual interdependence of producing and consuming nations, and not isolation.
The issue of energy security in Indonesia should be addressed by the four main actors such as; Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, State Owned Enterprises, Private Company and International Organizations.
In Indonesia itself, the consumption of crude oil increased for more than 50 percent from 2000 to 2010, the production decreased also by 50 percent in 2012 (from 1,6 million barrels to 861,000 barrels per day).
Recently, the government is continuously cutting of Indonesia’s BBM subsidy to secure country’s energy security. However, the policy greatly affects the consumer of BBM subsidy, especially to the transportation industry.
Through this high concern, Indonesia needs to provide more doable strategies to secure its energy security, such as switching the high usage of oil to geothermal energy, biofuel, bioethanol or other renewable energy, re-considering the subsidy given on fuel transactions.
As citizen, simple thing that we may contribute to sustain energy security in Indonesia is by using public transportation and switch from using BBM subsidy to Pertalite fuel for its eco-friendlier quality and efficiency.
