Indonesia: Electric Transportation and Charging Infrastructure

Sovereign (Public) Project | 54356-001 Status: Active

The TA will contribute to the policy action on electric transportation included in the policy matrix for the forthcoming policy-based loan on Sustainable and Inclusive Energy Program (SIEP) Subprogram 3, which is expected to be cofinanced by the Economic Development Cooperation Fund of the Republic of Korea. The SIEP has been supporting Presidential Regulation 55/2019, which paved the way for the promotion of EV deployment including charging infrastructure in Indonesia. The proposed TA will support a deployment roadmap, feasibility studies, and implementing regulations on electric charging infrastructure, critical to boost EV deployment. The TA will also help inform the proposed results-based loan for the Sustainable and Reliable Energy Access Program which includes support for EV charging infrastructure in western and central Java.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Government of Indonesia aims to promote EV deployment and production in Indonesia. In 2019, the President issued regulation number 55/2019 on the Acceleration of EV for Road Transportation. The regulation aims to establish a domestic EV manufacturing industry, including batteries and charging stations. The promotion of electric transportation is a key strategic priority under Indonesia's National Medium-Term Development Plan, 2020 2024, and line ministries are tasked with developing the implementing regulations related to road licensing (Ministry of Transport), battery and charging station standards, and electricity tariffs for EV charging (Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources), import regulations (Ministry of Industry), and financial incentives (Ministry of Finance).

The government's new strategy on promoting electric transportation aims to decrease the number of fossil-fueled vehicles to reduce emissions from combustion engines including carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur oxides. Nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides negatively impact air quality and health. In addition, the government is seeking to reduce oil consumption growth and oil imports to enhance energy security. Finally, the government intends to promote an innovative new technology and ensure that Indonesia is included in the new automotive production chain by increasing its local manufacturing capacity for EVs.

At present, EVs cannot be road licensed in Indonesia as the implementing guidelines for the Presidential Regulation 55/2019 are still for approval by the respective line ministries. There are only 57 charging stations installed in 35 locations in Indonesia, and most of them are not fast-charging stations; but simple 220 volts for household connections to the grid are available in the majority of households. The TA will assess the government's plan to build 1,000 charging stations for an expected addition of 2,200 electric cars, 711,000 hybrid cars, and 2.13 million electric motorcycles by 2030.

Impact The TA will support Indonesia to promote the deployment and production of electric vehicles to reduce carbon dioxide and other emissions from transport fuels

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
