Consultant for Bali Electric Vehicle Scoping Study
To address the emerging challenges of rapid urbanization growth and air pollution, the Balinese government turned to their local wisdom on sustainable development through transitioning towards electric vehicles and renewable energy as shown in the Governor of Bali Regulation no. 48/2019 on the Utilization of Battery-Based Electric Vehicles and Governor of Bali Regulation no. 45/2019 on Bali Clean Energy. However, there are lots of homework to be done in achieving Bali electric vehicle vision. First, the Bali government needs to analyze what has been lacking from the current policies and what improvements could be implemented. Second, map relevant stakeholders, including their roles and influences, to orchestrate well-managed coordination. Finally, composing a strategic campaign by analyzing people's perception and awareness of electric vehicles that aim to build positive awareness of electric vehicles and a lasting engagement with the local community will support Bali's vision from the demand's side.
World Resources Institute (WRI) Indonesia has been building its sound expertise on electric vehicle policy and technical analysis and supported by networks of global EV experts with experience in EV development around the globe. Our current collaboration with the Bali government will smooth out its initial phase in enabling the EV ecosystem, specifically in identifying policy scenarios, setting up EV Taskforce, as well as mapping key stakeholders.

Also, the consultant will work closely with WRI’s specialist in Social Landscape Assessment (who is mostly based in Jakarta) to conduct FGDs and one-on-one interviews with Bali’s stakeholders in government, private sector, and local communities to map and analyze their roles, influence, and priorities
