PURWOKERTO.SUARA.COM, BALI – The Provincial Government of Bali claims to be ready to provide an ecosystem that supports the market or sales of electric vehicles to accelerate the transition to clean and renewable energy.
Bali Provincial Secretary Dewa Made Indra said the support had been provided since around 2019, through several regulations and technical regulations that encourage the acceleration of the transition from fossil energy to new and renewable energy.
“Bali province is the only region that has adequate regulations for this. We started with the Regional Regulation (Perda) Number 9 of 2020 concerning the General Plan of Regional Energy. That’s where the essence of environmentally friendly energy is,” he said, quoted from Antara on Sunday (24/7/2022).
Dewa continued, Bali Governor I Wayan Koster also issued Governor Regulation Number 45 of 2019, specifically regarding clean energy.
He explained that there are many technical regulations related to this matter in Bali Province, so there are circular letters containing invitations and appeals to various elements, especially industry, to gradually move towards the use of clean energy.
“From various existing regulations, Bali has actually created an ecosystem that can support the growth and development of the electric vehicle sales market,” said Dewa.
Therefore, he added, specifically for the electric vehicle industry players, Bali could be a good market in the future because the ecosystem has been created, the local government commitment is very strong. According to him, transportation is one of the crucial sectors to accelerate the transition to clean energy.
According to him, transportation is one of the most important sectors to start using clean energy. Therefore, the Bali Provincial Government has also consistently supported the efforts of PT PLN (Persero) to add electric vehicle charging stations (SPKLU) and expand the reach of these facilities through the EVDS one stop service available on the PLN Mobile application.
“The Bali Provincial Government gives its strongest appreciation and support (to PLN) to continue to develop adequate infrastructure in the context of developing battery-based electric motor vehicles,” concluded Dewa. (Arif KF)
