Business Finland (supported by the Smart Energy Program) together with the Embassy of Finland in Indonesia is organizing a webinar on Tuesday 23 November, 2021 from 14.00–16.00 (Jakarta) / 09.00–11.00 (Helsinki). The topic of this webinar is "Smart City Concept – Knowledge Sharing from Finland".

The purpose of this webinar is to share experiences and knowledge of the Finnish smart city concept and initiative to the top 12 municipalities in Indonesia, and to hear about the progress of smart city development in these municipalities: Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang, Surabaya, Denpasar, Medan, Pontianak, Makassar, Manado, Sorong, Balikpapan and Bogor. This webinar will focus on 3 main sectors: Smart Energy – Smart Grid, ICT Cybersecurity and Green Buildings.

Indonesia is currently on its way towards an ambitious urban digitization program: "Gerakan 100 Smart City" or "100 Smart City Initiative". A smart city is comprehended as a city that is able to organize its resources effectively and efficiently by using technology, to solve the urban problems and to provide innovative, integrated and sustainable solutions to improve the livelihood of its people.

The Indonesian smart grid objectives related to Smart City initiatives include:

  1. to provide energy efficient solutions within smart cities to improve non-technical losses
  2. to provide service reliability solutions
  3. to provide better access & lower CO2 emissions to increase participation of renewable energy, especially the smaller or isolated island
  4. to combine and integrate renewable energy or distributed generation into the grid.

The role of ICT is increasing when developing a Smart City in Indonesia. This is due to ICT's role as the main infrastructure in the life of a modern society to develop smart city services such as electricity, water, roads and cybersecurity. Cities as "Smart Cities" put forward the best ideas in order to overcome cybersecurity issues in terms of maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and information.
