Energy security is a strategic aspect, if disturbed it can threaten national stability and security. The depletion of the availability of fossil energy sources, energy demand continues to increase, the agreement to reduce carbon gas emissions by 2030, and the target of the use of renewable energy (EBT) of 23% by 2025, it is necessary to diversify energy from fossil energy to renewable energy including nuclear energy. The construction of nuclear power plants (PLTN) in Indonesia has constraints and obstacles, one of which is that there is no government commitment to determine "Go Nuclear".

This study uses a qualitative approach that aims to analyze all forms of potential threats to energy security and explain how the role of intelligence in overcoming threats to energy security, as well as efforts in supporting the construction of nuclear power plants. Data collection techniques used were interview techniques, documentation, and literature study, with analysis techniques using Miles and Huberman. The study was conducted in the period February to April 2019.
The results showed that there was a threat to energy security and in anticipation of this threat, diversification of energy to EBT which has high power such as nuclear energy was needed. So in supporting national strategic development strategic intelligence is needed so that the development of nuclear infrastructure can be carried out and not disturb national stability and security.
