On February 29, 2024, Siemens Indonesia organized the second edition of the Siemens Indonesia Executive Summit, marking another successful gathering of industry players and key stakeholders in the digital industry. The summit delved into technologies as well as use cases crucial for digital and sustainable transformation towards net-zero targets. 

The summit was attended by prominent figures, such as representatives from the Indonesian Ministry of Industry, Deutsche Bank, Siemens Bank, and state-owned electricity company PLN. They engaged in discussions highlighting the pivotal role of digitalization in propelling decarbonization and sustainability efforts. Esteemed keynote speakers Dr. Roland Busch, the President and CEO of Siemens AG, as well as Dr. Lamine Jendoubi, President Director and CEO of PT Siemens Indonesia, also contributed their voice to the dialogue. 

Dr. Jendoubi emphasized the importance of reducing emissions from critical sectors like transportation, buildings, factories, and energy systems to combat climate change effectively. 

“Energy transition and the decarbonization of industry are primary catalysts for infrastructure transition. Reducing emissions from industrial and urban sectors such as transportation, buildings, factories, and energy systems are important to fight climate change. Siemens as a technology partner for digital transformation continue to support Indonesia's transformation in areas where the country needs more resource-efficient factories, smarter buildings and grids, transportation systems, as well as cleaner and more reliable energy,” stated Dr. Jendoubi. 

One of the key highlights of the summit was the Siemens Technology Vertical Expo, where participants had the opportunity to engage with experts across six focused industries, encompassing Data Center, Smart Urban (including Smart Hospital), Food & Beverage, Pulp & Paper, Utility, and Minerals.  

Furthermore, the summit also witnessed signing ceremonies under the Siemens University Initiative, reflecting the company’s commitment to supporting Indonesia’s green energy transition and workforce development. Siemens Indonesia cemented its partnership with Swiss German University (SGU), focusing on joint research into emerging cybersecurity technologies for the industry. Additionally, Siemens Indonesia extended its support to academia by awarding in-kind software grants to Universitas Indonesia, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember, and Institut Teknologi PLN, further enhancing their capabilities in power system planning and simulation.
