Context

The Government of Jakarta has adopted the strategy of introducing the electric vehicle technology in public and government vehicles as a means to kick start the market, creation of supportive infrastructure, and stimulate local manufacturing of components and vehicles.  

CTCN Support

•    Develop an investment plan and procurement documents for e-bus induction in 2020;
•    Assess the supportive policy requirements and actions required by the government of Jakarta and the government of Indonesia to facilitate the deployment of e-buses and related infrastructure; 
•    Feasibility assessment of renewable energy use in TransJakarta operations, including solar roofing for bus and/or the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stations.

Expected Impact

•    It is estimated that the green gas emission in Jakarta will go up to 117 million tons of CO2 in which the contribution from transportation will be about 25% with business as a usual scenario;  
•    Fully renewable energy powered electric buses can reduce 2680 CO2e grams per miles over diesel-based buses and 2364 CO2e grams per miles over gas-based buses. The grid powered electric buses will be estimated based on the grid energy mix during the design and implementation stage.
