REPUBLICA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) stated that the misstep that continues to be pushed in response to the challenge of energy transition is changing people's mindset to choose friendly vehicles environment.

That effort needs to be made given that motor vehicles are one of the main contributors to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Indonesia.

“Our task is still long, highlighting the trend statistics of rising temperatures and increasing CO2 emissions, rapid economic growth and increasing growth in the number of motor vehicles, this will lead to even more severe air pollution,” said the expert of ESDM Minister for Employment Sripeni Inten Cahyani in a statement in Jakarta on Monday.

Inten presented it at Stadium General “Building an Electric Vehicle Ecosystem” online attended by 89 students of Guerrilla Academy on Monday (19/2/2024).

“Therefore, the transition to electric vehicles is a crucial step in maintaining better air quality,” he continued.

Inten said that Indonesia must act quickly and make quick efforts to reduce the negative impact as the government attempts to formulate the Indonesia Gold 2045 Program to the target of reducing GHG emissions intensity towards net zero emissions (NZE).

He explained that one of the important points discussed in the NZE is the transition to electric vehicles, which is the focus of the government to reduce negative environmental impacts.

The government's strategy has gone through a range of concrete steps to encourage adoption of electric vehicles, from providing incentives to building charging infrastructure.

It also covers the role of the industrial sector in energy consumption with emphasis on the need to shift energy subsidies from the transport sector to the industrial sector to increase the economic multiplier effect, including, government efforts to provide incentives for the use of electric vehicles and subsidies for the conversion of combustion engine vehicles to electric vehicles.

According to him, through incentives of Rp 10 million for convertible motorcycles and Rp 7 million for new electric motorcycles, it is expected to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and produce a cleaner environment. In addition to paying attention to environmental aspects, the transition to electric vehicles has also had a significant economic impact.

“With incentives and subsidies from this government, it is hoped that the electric vehicle industry can expand rapidly, create new jobs, and move related sectors of the economy,” he said.

Inten also underscored the importance of collaboration between government, industry, academia, and society in achieving common goals.

He stressed that each individual and entity has a role to play in creating a sustainable future for Indonesia.

Inten said that while the government provided incentives and subsidies, the role of all parties, including private individuals, academics, and the media was crucial to support the transition by contributing to the shift from conventional to electric vehicles.

“In an effort to reduce carbon emissions and tackle the increasingly alarming climate change,” Inten said. At the end of his

presentation session, Inten expressed hope for the students of Guerrilla Academy as representatives of the younger generation as a driver of policy implementation and real action in support of a more environmentally friendly and sustainable energy transition.

“Brothers and sisters, I believe that you are the next generation that cares deeply about the future of our Earth, the younger generation that is concerned about the environment and if we are going to be consistent with the environment, when else (if not now) can we make a real contribution?” he said.
