Indigenous energy is defined as potential energy, both fossil fuels (oil and coal) and non-fossil energy (water, wind, biomass, nuclear, solar and biofuels) are typically owned by a particular region. In this context it means that every region has their indigenous energy. Indonesia as an archipelagic country with geography and typography are very diverse, resulting in the potential of indigenous energy in each region can vary as well as their exploration and optimalization. Indonesia as an archipelagic country, can not rely it’s energy demands only on fossil fuels. There is a discrepancy of fossil fuels as an energy source for use in various regions of Indonesia. The issue is the failure to meet the availability, purchasing power, distribution and infrastructure that must be prepared.
Deeper study of the potential of non fossil energy indigenous to each island in the border region remains to be done in order to optimize it’s use. Thus, it can be ascertained that it is the need for better integration between all components and local governments, for optimizing the indigenous energy, particularly in each area of the island nation’s leading border can be applied and eventually led the region achieve energy independence. Furthermore, energy independence can support the sovereignty of Homeland security in the region directly adjacent to other countries and is prone to lose its boundary.
