Visit of Ir. Agus Tjahajana Wirakusumah

South Tangerang, 12 January 2022 – As one of Indonesia's commitments in reducing Carbon Gas Emissions, namely through the ratification of Presidential Regulation Number 55 of 2019 concerning the Acceleration of the Battery Electric Vehicle Program for Road Transportation. This is a new opportunity for Indonesia to be able to compete with other countries. However, in line with this, it is necessary to strengthen the Domestic Component Level to show the strength of Indonesian products.

To find out more about these opportunities and challenges, the National Battery Research Institute received an honorary visit from Ir. Agus Tjahajana Wirakusumah on Wednesday, January 5, 2022. Taking place at the National Battery Research Institute Workshop located in Taman Tekno - South Tangerang, this visit was also a means of exchanging ideas and discussions regarding the conversion of 2-wheeled motorized fuel to electricity, as well as the needs related to the battery-based electric vehicle industry in Indonesia.

Prof. Evvy also appreciates how this discussion can enrich insights related to things that are happening both in the Government and Industry. NBRI as an independent party always supports and bridges the interests of each party in order to strengthen integration between stakeholders. Prof. Evvy also said that the battery is an important component that also determines the price of Electric Vehicles.

In this visit, Ir. Agus Tjahajana Wirakusumah who now serves as a Special Staff of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources also took the time to visit the Integrated Metallurgy and Battery Testing Facility. The meeting was closed by giving the book "Automotive industry for the country to become a major player in electric vehicles" which was written by Mr. Agus himself. In the future, it is hoped that NBRI will be able to accommodate the needs of industry and the government.
