Workshop on Potential of Electric Vehicles in Indonesia
Electric vehicles are rapidly emerging in many parts of Asia and alleviating the health and environmental burdens caused by the transport sector in what is called a “clean disruption.” EVs are gaining momentum in light of recent announcements by several major car manufacturing countries to ban Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) car sales in the near future, and the plans of major cities to restrict cars using diesel engines from their urban centers. In contrast to these bans, there is increased enthusiasm for EVs, with many developing countries and cities committing to EV deployment to varying degrees and business communities stepping in to provide business models to promote their adoption. However, despite the growing sales of EVs and announcements of policy and deployment plans by many countries and cities, the current number of EVs is still too small to produce any meaningful impact on emissions reduction. EVs are projected to reach a competitive pricing compared to ICE cars by the 2020s, resulting in a significantly higher share of electric car sales globally, and it is estimated that the number of EVs around the world will reach 125 million by 2030.
The main objectives of the workshop are to: (i) share and discuss the e-mobility policy and strategy for Jakarta and Makassar with the ministries and operators of commercial vehicles base on the study conducted by ADB e-mobility study. The e-mobility study of Jakarta and Makassar shows the environmental and energy impact of fostering (EVs) in Jakarta; and (ii) support e-mobility policy of the Indonesian government and commercial vehicle operators for preparing the e-mobility implementation strategy including financial options and further support from ADB.
