Abstract

The transportation sector is the largest oil energy-consuming sector and the second-largest emitter of gas emissions in Indonesia. To overcome this, the Government of Indonesia issued a presidential decree for electric cars in Indonesia, which targets to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in Indonesia. Several obstacles will be faced in adopting an electric vehicle in Indonesia, one of which is the readiness of an electric vehicle charging station. With a high investment value and a variety of charging technology forces the government to be able to choose the right technology. The objective of this research is to select the best alternative to provide recommendations for the Indonesian government in choosing the right type of charging station technology for Indonesia. In order to accomplish the aim, a hierarchy-based model has been developed by considering nine criteria and three alternatives, namely battery swapping, inductive, and conductive. This research uses the combined method of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS). Analysis reveals that the alternative, 'Conductive Charging,' holds the first rank among all considered alternatives.
