ABB Supports Growing EV Market In Indonesia

ABB hosted its “2020 Smarter Mobility Innovation Forum” in Jakarta, focusing on smart solutions to support successful adoption of electric vehicles (EV) in Indonesia. This is in support of the growing EV market in Indonesia, which is undoubtedly gaining pace, especially after President Joko Widodo issued a Presidential Regulation that will accelerate the development of EV in Indonesia, laying out government support for the EV industry in August last year.

Indonesia, which is one of South-east Asia’s largest economies, registers annual car sales of about one million units. The government aims for electric vehicles to make up at least 20 percent of total domestic vehicle sales by 2025, reducing the country’s reliance on imported fossil fuels and enabling Indonesia to maximise its abundant nickel reserves, a key material for making lithium-ion batteries.

A broad range of topics related to the EV industry in Indonesia were discussed, including global trends and technology shaping the market, different impacts and benefits of smart mobility, and technical matters such as reliable AC and DC fast charging stations with robust connectivity and innovative on-demand electric bus charging systems.

“ABB has sold more than 13,000 DC fast chargers in more than 80 countries including Indonesia and the demand keeps on growing. Our state-of-the art EV charger solutions are example of how ABB keeps innovating on technologies that will help our customers and partners pursue their goals toward a zero-emission future,” said Jorge Aguinaga, Local Business Manager for Electrification business in Indonesia.
