ESDM Formulates Business Incentive for Electric Vehicle Charging Station

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia – The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources ( ESDM ) is currently working on a series of incentives and licensing facilities for business entities that develop Charging Stations Electric Vehicle Public (SPKLU).

The Director General of Electricity at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Rida Mulyana, said the government would provide bulk tariff incentives for developers.

“The government provides bulk tariff incentives of Rp.714/kWh for SPKLU Business Entities with a maximum sales rate of Rp.2,467/kWh. So the margin is quite wide,” said Rida, in an official statement, Friday (3/9).

ESDM also added a reduction in connection fees up to the release of a minimum account for the first two years for SPKLU developers.

Not only that, ESDM guarantees the convenience of business permits by replacing business recommendations by local governments by only attaching proof of SPKLU land ownership.

Later, SPKLU business entities are required to provide an integrated information system with the Directorate General of Electricity to make it easier for consumers to find SPKLU.

The Director of Electrical Engineering and Environment of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Wanhar, said that incentives will also be given to consumers who use Battery-Based Electric Motorized Vehicles (KBLBB).

He said KBLBB owners would receive a number of incentives, including discounts on electricity of home charging up to 30 percent for seven hours from 10pm to 5am.

Then, there is an incentive for installation fees to add power up to 11,000 VA for IDR 150 thousand for phase 1 and add power up to 16,500 VA for IDR 450 thousand for phase 3.

The government in the Grand National Energy Strategy has targeted to build 572 SPKLU this year and the number will be doubled by 2030 with a target of reaching 31,859 units.

This is done to accommodate the number of 4-wheeled electric vehicles (KBLBB) which is estimated to reach 2.2 million units in 2030. To date, the number of 4-wheeled KBLBB has only reached 1,478 units, 3 wheelers are 188 units, and 2 wheelers have reached 7,526 units.
