Jakarta, Timerilis.com – Indonesia is working hard to reach Net Zero Emissions (NZE) by 2060. A big part of this goal is switching to 100% electric vehicles and using less imported fossil fuels.

Sripeni Inten Cahyani, an advisor at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM), talked about this plan. It fits with the National Grand Energy Strategy 2020-2040. “Our plan is to stop fuel imports by 2030,” Inten said in Jakarta.

Also, Qatro Romandhi from ESDM’s Energy Conservation Program team, talked about the good impact on the environment. “Going to electric vehicles has lowered CO2 emissions by 91.5 million tons in 2022. We want to cut down by 358 million tons by 2030,” Qatro said.

To help more people use electric vehicles, the government made Regulation Number 33 of 2021 on Energy Conservation. “We want all motorcycles and cars to be electric by 2035. This is important for our 2060 NZE goal,” Qatro added.

The government is also working on important things needed for electric vehicles. This includes making charging stations and battery swap places, and getting better batteries and parts. “These efforts are key for a full electric vehicle system,” Qatro said.

The National Grand Energy Strategy is about changing to energy that’s good for the environment. This goes along with Indonesia’s promise to cut down on global greenhouse gas emissions.

With these strong plans, Indonesia is leading the way to a cleaner, more sustainable future.
