The application of the clean energy solution which is too slow will increase the cost of reduction of climate change, this warning was conveyed by IEA (International Energy Agency) which mentions the estimated cost to fulfill the ambition in the world climate change at 1 billion dollars.
IEA mentioned, that it very important for every country to increase all power and efforts in fulfilling the objective which was targetted for the Copenhagen meeting in the year 2009, even though it failed to achieve consensus. The results of the Copenhagen Accord is to stipulate the mutual objectives so that the increase of the global world should be less than 2oC, even it did not stipulate emission reduction for each country so that this target could be achieved or do all the countries support this or not.

The demand of energy keeps on increasing, including the demand for the supply of electricity. With nuclear an energy solution could be obtained which is capable to produce massive and constant energy. The application of Nuclear technology for the life of humans are various, among others for the need in the field of energy, especially at the time where the need has leaped like now.
Energy Exploration
Natural Isotopes as well as artificial isotopes for example could be used as a geothermal exploration and exploitation tool.  The geographic position of Indonesia is an advantage on the side of energy potency.  It is situated in the interaction region between the Euroasia, India-Australia and pacific plate, making this region volcanic with a quite large potency of geothermal.

Actually nuclear technology compared to non-energy has much been utilized, like in the field of industry, health, agriculture, animal breeding, sterilization of pharmaceutical products, preservation of food material up until hydrology. However, the utilization of nuclear for energy has not yet been used maximally, one of the reasons is the fear of the people on the issue of the danger of radiation from nuclear. In fact the utilization of nuclear energy as a source of energy is relatively cheaper, safe and does not pollute the environment.
The development of Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) every year increases, it is noted that until the year 2011 there are already 435 units of NPP which are operating in the world spread out in 30 countries contributing about 17% and with a capacity of 368.3 Gwe from the world’s supply of electric energy. Whereas 63 NPP units with a total capacity of 61 Gwe are in the construction phase in 14 countries and the plans to develop 156 NPP units in 28 countries.
In regard to operations, the Conventional Electricity Generation (PLK) and NPP is not very different, water is evaporated into steam in a kettle through combustion of fossil material (oil, coal, and gas). The steam produced is channeled to a steam generator which is used for driving the turbine. The turbine will dirve the generator therefore producing electricity.

The nuclear reactor room owned by the National Nuclear Energy Agency in the Complex of the Center for Research in Science and Technology, Serpong, Tangerang, Banten, Tuesday (23/4/2013).
KOMPAS.com – The National Nuclear Energy Agency (BATAN) is planning to develop a nuclear reactor in Serpong. The reactor which will be built is an experimental power reactor, not a commercial nuclear reactor.
"Its capacity is 30 Megawatt," said the Head of BATAN, Djarot Wisnubroto, in meetinmg with reporters, Thursday (21/8/2014) in Jakarta.
Because of its experimental nature, the reactor built is not targetted to produce electricity for public consumption. “The purpose is to demonstrate to the public regarding the method in producing electricity using nuclear,” said Djarot.

Jakarta (14 October 2014). The fact that the public is frightened about radioactive waste, is incorrect because the wastes could be recycled. This statement was conveyed to the Head of BATAN, Prof. Dr. Djarot Sulistio Wisnubroto during the opportunity of the Training Meeting On Best Practices In The Uranium Production Cycle- From Exploration Through To Mining, in Hotel Grand Kemang, Jakarta, Tuesday (14/9).
