Kutai to Become Model Smart City in Indonesia

The Kutai Kartanegara district in Indonesia will be the first smart city model in Indonesia.

The Kutai Kartanegara district, East Kalimantan province, will be the first smart city model in Indonesia, according to the Head of the district's Investment and Promotion Office Bambang Arwanto.

The concept and model of Kutai Kartanegara smart city draws inspiration from the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town that was built by the Panasonic consortium, comprising 17 companies.

"The construction of the smart city will be carried out through cooperation between the district administration and the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce for infrastructure. The plan has been conveyed to the president," Bambang noted.

Kutai Kartanegara has been chosen to be the smart city model because of its positive investment growth. The district can be practically managed due to the large land area, less population, is rich in energy resources, and has a good spatial plan.

Similar to the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town (SST) in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, the smart city of Kutai Kartanegara will be built through cooperation between the private and government sectors.

The smart city is being built with the objective of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 70 percent and decreasing water consumption by 30 percent. The smart city will meet over 30 percent of its energy needs through renewable energy sources, with energy savings for up to 100 years.
