The GES project will involve setting up a solar power plant, installing an electric vehicle (EV) charging station, and offering cashless payments at Pertamina petrol stations.

"Pertamina sees that the battery charging business will become an integral part of Pertamina's gas station business in the future, therefore cooperation with electric car manufacturers such as the BMW Group is needed," said Adiatma Sardjito, Pertamina Corporate Communication Vice President.

The initiative also aims to support Indonesian government’s commitment to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions as well as demonstrates Pertamina’s readiness in facing the global shift in the automotive industry.

BMW Group, which launched the country’s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) vehicle, carries out research on EV technology, tests grid charging in other countries, and analyzes benefits and operational costs of EVs to prepare EV ecosystems in Indonesia.
