Provision of Electric Charging Infrastructure for Battery Based Electric Motor Vehicles

Last updated: 2 February 2023

In 2020, Indonesia regulated the types of charging infrastructure, requirements for the electricity state-owned company (PT PLN) and electricity charging tariffs. 
Charging infrastructures for battery electric vehicles includes charging facilities and battery-replacement facilities. The regulation specify the following requirements : 
- Power-supply equipment for recharging systems must include several elements such as AC charging system, DC charging system and combined charging system ; 
- Control systems for electrical current, voltage and communications must have separate connectors for each subsystem under the relevant charging system and must meet control requirements for the supply and termination of electrical currents; 
- Protection system that must satisfy the control function through a pilot bulb indicator. 

Three types of EV charging speeds are included in the regulation: 
- Normal charging <22 kW (office parking lots) 
- Fast charging <50 kW (malls and rest areas) 
- Ultrafast charging <150 kW (malls and rest areas).

The regulation also specifies that the provisions of electricity charging infrastructure for BEV are carried out through requirements to PLN to cooperate with stated-owned enterprises and/or other privately owned business entities.
