Jakarta-Serpong Electric Vehicle Convoy, Here is the Resume

Perbandingan Hasil KonvoiIn line with the national electric car acceleration program, BPPT prepared two Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS), namely fast charging station 50 kW at BPPT Jakarta and smart charging station 20 kW at B2TKE-BPPT Kawasan PUSPIPTEK Serpong, Tangerang Selatan.

Followed by various types of electric vehicles, the EVCS facility which was inaugurated on Wednesday (December 5) at BPPT Thamrin Jakarta proved to be able to charge electricity for the majority of vehicles present.

Head of the National Laboratory for Energy Conversion Technolgy (B2TKE) MM Sarinanto said, “The presence of BPPT's fast charging station facility is expected to provide a solution to the duration of charging electric vehicles”.

At present, the duration or length of time needed to charge a battery is one of the obstacles faced by electric cars. To fully charge an electric car battery takes 4-5 hours. This is very different compared to petrol cars which only take a few minutes to be fully charged.

However, BPPT fast charging stations have been able to charge electric car batteries in less than one hour.


Vehicles with CCS, Chademo and type 2 cable charging sockets can be charged at BPPT's EVCS. “When filled at fast charging station Thamrin which has a capacity of 50 kV, the Tesla X model takes 1.5 hours to charge a 75 kWh battery that can be used to travel up to 380 km. While the Mitsubishi i-Miev with a battery capacity of 16 kWh only takes about 20 minutes to charge”, said Ganesha Tri Chandrasa, BPPT Electric Vehicle Engineers Team Head.

Besides being environmentally friendly, another advantage of using electric vehicles is the efficiency of energy consumption. It was recorded from the convoy of a number of electric vehicles shortly after EVCS was inaugurated, with a distance of 39 km from Thamrin to Serpong, the electric bus made by PT Mobil Anak Bangsa consumes 33.15 kWh or equivalent to 48 thousand rupiah (assuming 1 kWh is Rp1,450.-).

Sarinanto revealed, “A distance of 39 km, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV only consumes 5 kWh, equivalent to 7,250 rupiah, while Tesla only spends 17 thousand rupiahs”.

With the presence of BPPT EVCS, it is expected to be able to initiate the growth and development of electric charging stations in Indonesia and be able to encourage people to switch from using oil-fueled cars to electric cars. (molis)
