17 October 2019 07:15 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaCoordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan urged state electricity firm PLN to expedite the provision of electric vehicles or EV charging stations (SPKLU) following the signing of MoU with 20 companies. 

“I am glad the PLN director can mobilize this [MoU], but we should not stop here,” said Luhut during the signing event at BPPT building, Central Jakarta, Wednesday, Oct. 16.

According to Luhut, the program needs to be expedited since Indonesia is dealing with severe pollution. If it cannot be curbed immediately, the next generation will suffer the impact.

“Pollution is our enemy regardless of ethnicity or religion. So we have to lower the pollution from motorcycles, cars and divert to electric ones,” he underlined.

The PLN’s acting director Sripeni Inten Cahyani has inked the cooperation with PT Pertamina, PT Angkasa Pura II, PT Pos Indonesia, PT Len Industri, PT Jasa Marga, dan PT Jaya Ancol, Grab, Gojek, PT Blue Bird, PT Transjakarta, PT Mobil Anak Bangsa (MAB), PT Gesits Technologies Indo, PT Bank Central Asia (BCA), Lippo Malls, Nissan, Mitsubishi, PT Bakrie Autoparts, BMW, Prestige, and DFSK.

Sri explained that the MoU was a follow-up of Article 23(2) of Presidential Regulation No. 55/2019 on the program acceleration of battery-based electric vehicle for land transportation issued on August 12, 2019.
