The Importance of Energy Power Extension

ibra1Jakarta – At present in order to meet the needs of fuel oil (BBM) in Indonesia must import country. This occurs as a result of Indonesia’s oil production is no longerproportional to the rate of fuel consumption continues to increase from year to year.

As a non-renewable fuels (non-renewable) energy, of course, the existence of oil types will decrease its role in national energymix. Concrete steps to replace it must be realized as an alternative energy source in the future.

Associated with a local alternative energy actually are found in various regions in Indonesia. However, because of the ignorance of the public about alternative fuels has been a major constraint to the current undeveloped. Therefore, the existence of “Extension Energy” into something that is very important.

Members of the Governing Body Committee on Downstream Oil and Gas (BPH Migas) Dr. Ibrahim Hashim said the extension of this energy must be there in the midst of the community to educate the public in selecting, mamakai and develop local energy biomass available many around him.

“If the extension could be done would be very helpful. Currently people in certain areas there is no idea that in the region there is a biogas which can be used as an alternative energy source. They also do not know what to make and how to use them, “said Ibrahim, recently in Jakarta.

Ibrahim added, with the Energy Extension in areas the public can finally know there are many other alternative energy sources that can be used. If you have this course fuel is still the main source of energy does not need to provide at each point throughout Indonesia.

“In American oil production is enormous, but still there are certain states that use alternative energy such as solar energy, wind and still continue to be developed. So we had to be there like it. So as to reduce dependence on imported fuel in Indonesia, “said Ibrahim.

Recognized Ibrahim, today is most people are still using fossil energy. With oil and gas production is only about 800,000 barrels per day is considered very difficult to establish energy independence. There are several things that must be done in order to establish energy independence, including lowering dependence on imported energy, reduce the use of fossil energy, and healthy energy use.
