Abstract

The utilization of energy in transportation sector is a major contributor to carbon dioxide emissions, and the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is seen as a solution to reduce this impact. However, the utilization of electric charging stations (ECS) and EV charging stations (EVCS) in Indonesia is not optimal, as evidenced by low usage levels. This study aimed to understand the characteristics of ECS and EVCS users in Indonesia in order to identify determinant factors for ECS and EVCS utilization. Using descriptive quantitative analysis, exploratory factor analysis, and binary logistic regression, the study found that potential EVCS users are adults from upper-middle-class backgrounds, with four family members, who own a motorcycle and live in suburban areas. Furthermore, a wide social network, knowledge of technology, and ease of access, convenience, and price were identified as key factors for choosing ECS/EVCS. However, an attitude of caring for the environment had a negative effect on ECS/EVCS usage, and respondents who charge their electronic devices at home overnight were less likely to use ECS/EVCS. The study also found that the number of sockets in a respondent's home, previous family members' experience, and duration of work experience and self-identity were also reasons for choosing to use ECS/EVCS. Overall, this study provides a deeper understanding of the factors that influence the utilization of ECS and EVCS in Indonesia.
