The province of West Kalimantan, which borders on land with Malaysia, has untapped energy potential. There is a need for maximum exploration and utilization to secure these energy sources from the threat of seizing energy sources with neighboring countries. In addition to oil sources, renewable energy also has the potential to be utilized as an energy source in the border area of West Kalimantan, one of which is the use of Thorium as an energy source to support energy security in the region. Energy security for residents in border areas is one of the main things in pursuing ideal conditions for national energy security. One of the obstacles generally felt by border communities is the lack of access to energy. In West Kalimantan, electricity is still imported to support electricity there, with the potential of Thorium, it is hoped that it will be the right opportunity to support energy security, one of which is the use of electricity in the border areas of West Kalimantan. This research was conducted in a qualitative descriptive manner, by conducting interviews and responses from research sources. This research is expected to be a future solution for the government in optimizing the potential of Thorium for energy needs such as in the West Kalimantan.
