TWO CRUCIAL ISSUES WITHIN THE DRAFT BILL ON NEW AND RENEWABLE ENERGY

Tahun Terbit: 2021

Keterangan:

Presently, Draft Bill on New and Renewable Energy (RUU EBT) is undergoing deliberation by the House of Representatives (DPR). Evidently, this RUU EBT is planned to be formulated to act as legal framework in relation to establishment of policy, management, provision and utilization of New Energy and Renewable Energy, with the hope that its implementation on national up to regional level will be structured and directed. Projection which is later established takes forms of acceleration in development of New and Renewable Energy (EBT) in order to replace consumption of fossil energy as majority energy supply in bid to fulfill the needs of industry and power plant.
Conceivably, there is a willingness to treat RUU EBT as formal legal document which has the function of laying out primary points as transitional mean toward clean energy.

Nevertheless, by reading RUU and its Academic Script, version as of 25 January 2021, several substantive issues still persist in its draft. Naturally, this article aims to review and criticize the substance of RUU EBT, as well as its Academic Script, specifically in regards to answering two crucial issues which lie in the contents of RUU EBT version of 25 January 2021, namely:

1) absence of justification on the needs of nuclear power plant in current condition, and

2) absence of answer regarding the actual issue and condition on energy planning and management in comprehensive manner.
