Opportunities for Finnish smart city expertise – Indonesia is building a new capital from scratch

A world-class smart city is rising on the island of Borneo, Indonesia. Named Nusantara the new capital has been envisioned as an inclusive, green, and sustainable city for everyone. The project offers opportunities for Finnish companies to construct basic infrastructures and digitize services.

The city aims for zero emissions by using 100 percent renewable energy, investing in energy efficiency and recycling, electrifying traffic entirely, and favouring public transport. Nusantara has also set as a goal that citizens have access to public services, public transportation, and green areas in ten minutes – a "ten-minute city."

Nusantara authority has named Intelligent Transportation System as one of the main subdomains in the Smart city. Different features of the system are for example: traffic and parking system, incident management, autonomous driving, commercial vehicle operation.

The Head of the Nusantara Capital Authority (IKN), Bambang Susantono, says smart solutions, digitalization, and the latest technologies are utilized in the city planning and implementation. However, Susantono emphasized in his meeting with Finnish companies that the technology must serve people.

"Building a new city is more than just building its physical features. It is planning in a way that promotes social cohesion. I want my citizens to be happy," he said and referred to Finland as the world's happiest nation.
