Shell Launches The First Ever Public EV Charging Station In Indonesia

Shell Indonesia has recently introduced its first Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station (SPKLU) in Indonesia, Shell Recharge. Shell Recharge will meet the increasing demand for environmentally friendly transportation by providing services for public and transportation companies providing electric vehicles in Indonesia. Shell Recharge is a form of Shell Indonesia’s commitment to providing more solutions in providing cleaner energy.

Shell Recharge is currently available at the Shell Pluit 1 gas station, North Jakarta, with a fast-charging power of 50kW. The power charging process from 0-80% can be done in approximately 30 minutes.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Indonesia began its transition towards clean energy, especially in its transport sector, which is the largest user of fossil fuels after the industrial sector. Indonesia sits on approximately 24% of the world’s nickel reserves. Nickel is one of the raw materials for electric vehicle batteries, and this is one of the key factors driving the government’s efforts to electrify the country’s vehicle fleet of more than 133 million vehicles, almost all powered by internal combustion engines at present.

In addition, the country’s rising vehicle numbers correspond with the steady increase in transport emissions, making the sector’s transition to clean energy an important part of Indonesia’s national effort to mitigate environmental challenges while maintaining economic growth.

Last weekend, the Indonesia Battery Corporation (IBC), which is owned by four state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in the mining and energy sector, was officially formed. The company’s focus is on developing electric vehicle batteries from upstream to downstream. The investment in Indonesia’s battery industry from upstream to downstream will reach USD17 billion by 2030, with a battery production target of around 140-gigawatt hours (GWh).
