The government targets the battery-based electric motor vehicle program to ‘give birth’ 6 million electric motors by 2025. The program is claimed to provide enormous savings for the state budget.
“This is an effort to create a KBLBB ecosystem with a target of 6 million electric motor units by 2025. The implementation of this program will be able to save fuel around 13 million barrels/year or Rp. 16 trillion/year, reduce CO2 emissions by 4 million tons/year and increase electricity consumption is 2.4 terawatt hours (TWh)/year,” said Ego in a written statement from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Friday (24/6/2022)
Ego delivered the electric vehicle program on the sidelines of the signing of three Memorandums of Understanding for the energy transition program. This signing is part of a series of The 2nd Energy Transitions Working Group (ETWG), in Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara.
Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources with PT Pertamina (Persero) and PT PLN (Persero) for the electric motor conversion program. Furthermore, between PT PLN (Persero) and HIMBARA (Bank Mandiri, BRI, BNI, BTN) for KBLBB ownership credit and infrastructure development for Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (SPKLU).
Ego explained that currently all countries are trying to maintain the increase in global temperature to avoid the impact of global disasters and climate change, including extreme heat, rising sea levels, the extinction of several living things, changes in ecosystems, and the extinction of coral reefs and marine fisheries.
For this reason, efforts are needed to mitigate climate change by reducing carbon emissions (decarbonization) but while maintaining energy security.
“This makes the energy transition even more urgent to be implemented as the direction of the national energy policy going forward, namely the transition to cleaner, less emission and environmentally friendly energy in accordance with Indonesia’s commitments to the Paris Agreement and the Net Zero Emission target in 2060 or sooner with international assistance,” explained Ego.
Mitigation efforts carried out include the development of New Renewable Energy (EBT), reducing the use of fossil energy and increasing the use of Battery-Based Electric Motorized Vehicles (KBLBB). The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, continued Ego, continues to encourage the KBLBB Program to realize cleaner energy use, reduce fuel imports, save foreign exchange and reduce CO2 emissions.
