Technology will continue to develop as time goes by and human needs are increasingly complex. One of the issues currently being discussed is the issue of sustainability and renewable energy to reduce high air emissions. The Indonesian government aims to reduce carbon emissions, one of which is by increasing the number of electric vehicles used. Convertible electric motorbikes are a technological innovation that comes from university research. In order to support the development and commercialization of conversion kit technology, a model framework is needed. This research discusses the technological entrepreneurship and innovation system model that is suitable for the development of supporting technology for electric convertibles produced in Indonesia. Meanwhile, other aspects that will be discussed regarding technology development, namely technology push or market pull. Furthermore, the product development process is also discussed to find out how to prevent technological innovation from falling into the valley of death. This study aims to develop strategies and provide lessons learned to readers so that technology commercialization can run well. The results of the analysis show that the conversion kit technology innovation currently still requires outreach because public interest is still not large, besides that the supply chain network of a conversion workshop is still not clearly defined. So that over time, the government and the conversion workshop work together to develop a supply chain for conversion kit components.
