Indonesia Research Highlights

Indonesia is the large country with dense populations (the 4th in the world). The applications of battery as the energy storage and the electric vehicle industry will be very important, following the presidential decree no 55/2019 on transforming the ICE into Electric vehicle in 2030. The rural areas also need more electricity from the renewable energy based on battery. The mixed renewable energy is targeted up to 23% in 2030. However, there is no battery manufacture in Indonesia, that supports this industry demand. Meanwhile, Indonesia has abundant local resources that has not been properly applied for the battery industries.
