"Indonesia has made a nuclear energy outlook in 2014 and it is clearly stated that Indonesia needs electricity with the power of 115 GW in 2025, and existing electricity is around 52 GW. The lack of electricity till 2025 should be supported by new energy and renewable energy (NRE) with the percentage of 23%, including nuclear. One of the advantages of nuclear is that they are green, very competitive and to be able to provide bigger power of electricity."
“Our specific needs include training in reactor analysis, in-core fuel management, and safety analysis, reactor operation and maintenance. Local expertise, skill and competency should be developed for efficient management and future operation. We are lacking expertise in nuclear physics, reactor physics, nuclear engineering graduates, both at graduate and undergraduate level needs to be addressed. More universities need to come forward with quality programmes to address this.”
