The state-owned energy giant showcased gas-fueled taxi cars and a battery-swapping charging station, emphasizing the nation's commitment to sustainable energy and achieving net zero emissions by 2060.

The exhibition became a crucial moment for Indonesia’s automotive industry, showcasing a future powered by renewable energy. Indonesia’s president Joko Widodo opened IIMS 2024 at the Jakarta International Expo (JIExpo) on Feb. 15. The event will be held until Feb. 25.

Amid the impressive display of vehicles, Pertamina's exhibition stood out with its focus on the theme 'Performance and Green - Energizing the Nation', a testament to Indonesia's path towards a greener future.

The oil and gas giant introduced an array of green energy innovations, including taxi cars powered by gas fuel and a battery-swapping charging station, catering to the burgeoning demand for electric vehicles in Indonesia.  

The initiatives align with the Indonesian government's target to achieve net zero by 2060, marking a significant milestone in its energy transition program.

Furthermore, Pertamina's commitment to environmental stewardship was evident through the participation of its various Subholding companies, each presenting their green innovations and products. This underscores Pertamina's role not only in fueling the country’s vehicles but also in leading the charge towards a sustainable and environmentally friendly energy ecosystem.

Pertamina’s Fadjar Djoko Santoso said in a statemen that the company is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to the energy transition, including with the use of gas fuel. It also hopes that its presence at IIMS 2024 can increase awareness about the energy transition in Indonesia.
