DPR Urges BRIN to Advance Electric Vehicle Battery Research
Member of Commission VII DPR RI Sartono

Jakarta, Timerilis.com – Sartono, a member of Commission VII of the Indonesian Parliament (DPR RI), has called on the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) to intensify their research into electric vehicle batteries.

The objective is to develop smaller, high-quality, cost-effective, and durable batteries. This initiative is in line with Indonesia’s aim to achieve Net Zero Emission by 2060.

Sartono highlighted the critical need for advanced electric car and motorcycle technologies to curb fossil fuel pollution.

“We face several challenges with electric vehicles, including issues with battery charging and range. We expect BRIN to develop long-lasting batteries that are also affordable,” Sartono remarked at the Commission VII DPR RI hearing.

He also expressed concern about the insufficient promotion of electric vehicles.

“Electric vehicles require more aggressive promotion. The DPR is ready to fully back BRIN’s research in this area,” he added.

Sartono noted that the electric vehicle market holds significant potential. He stressed the need for political policies that focus on nurturing this sector, especially the development of electric vehicle batteries.

“Political decisions are crucial to fast-track the research on electric vehicle batteries,” he underscored.
