The government plans to develop nuclear-based technology to replace fossil fuel.

Technology Minister Gusti Muhammad said  on Tuesday that Indonesia needed to develop nuclear technology because fossil-based energy sources were depleting.

'€œIf we are facing a [fossil-based energy] crisis, then we should try to develop nuclear technology,'€ Gusti saidas quoted by kontan.co.id.

Gusti said that this plan needed to be followed up as soon as possible because developing nuclear-based technology would require a lot of investment and time.

'€œIf we start developing now, then we can reap the results in 10 years,'€ he said.
