      The momentum gained by Indonesia in its G20 Presidency will encourage advanced countries to realize technological, financial, and capacity development based on the Paris Agreement

      Jakarta (ANTARA) - The G20 multilateral forum offers momentum for Indonesia to present the potential of nuclear power plants, Gadjah Mada University's economic and energy observer, Fahmy Radhi, said.

      "The momentum gained by Indonesia in its G20 Presidency will encourage advanced countries to realize technological, financial, and capacity development based on the Paris Agreement. This will make nuclear power plants as clean energy (resources) in Indonesia and other developing countries," Radhi explained here on Tuesday.

      The observer noted Indonesia, as the largest archipelagic nation in the world, is in dire need of nuclear energy, as it generates clean electrical energy on as massive scale.

      Indonesia's uranium potential can be tapped to produce cheaper electricity from nuclear power plants as compared to fossil energy, he highlighted.

      According to Radhi, the state-of-the-art technology of nuclear power plants can guarantee a high level of safety in waste treatment and power plants. For instance, he pointed to zero accidents in the nuclear power plant technology developed by Russia.

      Furthermore, the government needs to immediately revise the National Energy General Plan (RUEN) that still places nuclear power plants as the last alternative, he affirmed.

      Hence, the observer believes that the government should make nuclear potentials a priority or the prime energy and electricity resources in Indonesia.

      "For nuclear power plants to align with Indonesia's mission (for sustainable energy), RUEN must be revised to prioritize nuclear power plants as the main priority for generating clean energy in Indonesia," he explained.

      One of the main topics in Indonesia's G20 Presidency is the transition to sustainable energy, for which a global system of just and renewable energy should be strengthened, according to an expert at the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Yudo Dwinanda Priaadi.

      At the G20 forum, Indonesia has the opportunity to push forward a global collective endeavor in realizing a policy that can bolster inclusive economic recovery as well as support energy transition on an international scale.
