In cooperation with state-owned electricity company Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), state-owned oil and natural gas company Pertamina, and Hyundai Indonesia, Delta Indonesia successfully implemented almost 250 electric vehicle (EV) chargers to foster e-mobility at the 2022 Group of Twenty (G20) Bali Summit, which gathered the leaders of the world's largest economies in November 2022.

Delta EV chargers, which make up around 80% of chargers on Bali Island and charged almost 900 EVs during the B20 and G20 events, were the main EV charging solution for the 17th G20 Summit. This remarkable milestone further cements Delta's status as a leading provider of smart energy-saving solutions in Indonesia, following its successful implementation of 21,000 smart LED streetlights in Jakarta in 2017.

Mr. Johnny Tam, Country Manager for Delta Indonesia, said, "In line with our corporate mission, 'To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow', Delta has become a global leader in e-mobility, having already delivered over 1.5 million EV chargers to our worldwide customers over the past decade.

In Bali, Delta has so far provided 200 AC and 46 DC EV chargers, including the 200kW DC Ultra Fast Charger and the 25kW DC Wallbox Charger, to the EV charging stations of customers including state-owned electricity company Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), state-owned oil and natural gas company Pertamina, and Hyundai Indonesia. Throughout the 2022 G20 Summit over 900 EVs were charged with Delta supplying 80% of the operating EV chargers. After the event, the state-owned companies are expected to install more EV chargers in major cities across Indonesia to promote the local EV ecosystem.

The 2022 G20 Bali Summit was hosted by the government of Indonesia under the motto Recover Together, Recover Stronger. Participating world leaders discussed a range of pressing geopolitical, economic and environmental issues. The large EV fleet used by delegates at the event aimed to demonstrate the Indonesian government's strong commitment to green transportation and the sustainable infrastructure readiness of Bali. The majority of the EV charging stations were located near the G20 Summit venue at Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center. In addition, EV charging stations were set up at shopping malls, parking lots and luxury hotels. The B20 Summit on November 13-14, 2022 was the official G20 dialogue forum with the global business community held under the theme-Advancing Innovative, Inclusive and Collaborative Growth.

In 2019, Delta launched the first Ultra Fast Charger in Southeast Asia in Jakarta. With over 2,000 Delta EV chargers installed across the country, Delta is now the EV charger market leader in Indonesia. As an early market entrant, Delta Indonesia has gained experience and accumulated excellent performance records with local customers to gain their trust.

Bali International Airshow 2024

Bali International Airshow 2024

PT Inaro Tujuh Belas in cooperation with the Indonesian Minister of Maritime and Investment, today announces the holding of the Bali International Airshow 2024 to be held in September 2024 with the full support of the Indonesian Government.

As an archipelago consisting of 170,000 islands, air transportation in Indonesia is an absolute necessity for the movement of passengers as well as cargo. Even during the pandemic, the movements of cargo delivery is stable, illustrating the rapid rise in aviation growth in Indonesia.

Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, Coordinating Minister of Maritime and Investment of Indonesia, said that "Indonesia, consisting of 17,000 islands, needs significant investments to accelerate the domestic aviation industry. Indonesia currently has 673 airports of various sizes in various regions, the development and management of which would need substantial funds.

The number of airports would even need to be expanded, considering many remote areas would be easily accessed by air transportation. The Bali International Airshow is therefore necessary to achieve the aim of Indonesia's aviation industry development.

The Bali International Airshow 2024 is expected to be a meeting place for aviation businesses from domestic as well as foreign circles. Promote bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and other countries in the Asia Pacific, Europe and US regions, in investment as well as procurement of air transportation which currently is very much needed for commercial as well as domestic needs to raise Indonesia's military strength.

To achieve the purpose, in the preparation and implementation, the Bali International Airshow will receive inputs and directives from Dr. Ing. H. Ilham akbar Habibie, Dip.Ing., M.B.A., Indonesia's aviation expert, who will act as Advisory Board for the Bali International Airshow 2024.

Regulating Noisy Bars in Jakarta

Regulating Noisy Bars in Jakarta

Jakarta city, Indonesia, is an international centre and a top tourist destination. People from across the country flock here to enjoy food, drink, clubbing, shopping and entertainment uniquely Javanese. The bustling modern metropolitan city hosts some of the country's most famous bars as well as awesome nightclubs. Because of this, a few tight residents are concerned about noise pollution and noise control regulations in Jakarta City.

The Jakarta Governor's office regulates noisy bars within the city. According to city regulations, new bars cannot open in areas with other bars on the same street. Owners must provide a public address system inside each establishment. They must erect signs indicating when the doors open for business. As you know, the concept of noisy bars is not new. In fact, the phenomenon has been regulated by governments for a long time. That's why Indonesia's government enacted noise control regulations in the city and then justified it with a commitment to protect the citizens' health.

Through the Office of the City Mayor and the Regulation and Development Division, the Jakarta City Government has been regulating noise levels in bars, restaurants and entertainment venues since 2007 to protect residents from noise pollution caused by such activities. Jakarta City Regulation Number 44/BL/V-1/2011, nicknamed the "License to Live Act", regulates noisy bars within the city. For example, each bar must be located at least 50 meters from the other. A bar should be located higher than three floors above the ground level; there should be enough space to play musical instruments and revel.

Bar owners who want to operate in the city must obtain a license from the City Hall. They are then subject to regulations, including noise, ventilation and lighting requirements. We've noted Jakarta City has regulations to control the noise emitted by bars and clubs. Noise levels above 60 decibels between midnight and 6 am is illegal. Any activity that disturbs traffic, residents, and their privacy is also against the law. There are fines for wearing masks or headphones whilst drinking alcohol in a public place, disturbing people, breaching the peace, and disturbing morals.

There are penalties for upsetting customers who are enjoying something in the other entertainment area (e.g., watching sport on TV). Also, fines exist for abusing others- verbally or physically- with insults or gestures, doing anything illegal in a bar, or causing noise pollution with communication devices for excessively long periods.

Essentially, Jakarta's local laws require bars and restaurants to play soft music in their establishments. However, these rules are not strictly enforced. This is why the Jakarta City Government proposed regulations to control the noise. The laws are published on the city hall notice board. If a bar is located within walking distance of a school or mosque, the place must stop serving food at 11 pm. If you were to measure the noise levels at different times of the day and night around Jakarta seems likely the main noise would not come from bars and clubs...

Still however, the law prohibits loud music from playing from 10 pm to 5 am. Jakarta rules and regulations are enforced by city-based police as well as private security companies, who are sometimes on the lookout for intoxicated customers, loud music, and rowdy behaviour. The regulations aim to help people sleep in peace. Another intent of this legislation is to ensure establishments serving liquor and drinks have good air-conditioning facilities and adequate noise controls.

The regulations work under Jakarta city's public order law. Thus, any person who causes a public nuisance that disturbs the peace or causes a disturbance by noise (other than those authorized by this law) could be sentenced to six months imprisonment or fined no more than Rp 1 million ($ 100), or both. If violence is involved and it results in physical injury or death, the offender could be committed to one to five years of imprisonment or fined not less than Rp 5 million ($ 500). However, the fine should not exceed Rp 20 million ($ 2 500). Since the city authorities don't directly control the establishments, bar owners are encouraged to play it safe by ensuring their business is not noisy.

Further, other rules are imposed on the proprietors to control noise made by bars and pubs. For example, they have to install acoustic panels in the ceiling, allowing the noise from above to be absorbed by the floor area below. It results in consistent background sound levels throughout the bar area (which meets Indonesia's standards).

Technology makes places as quiet as possible. Further, bar owners need to keep their licensed premises registered at the Jakarta Municipal Licensing Office. The proprietors must present a local audit report whenever they wish to adapt or change their business license.

Celebrating the upcoming G20 Summit

Celebrating the upcoming G20 Summit

To celebrate the upcoming G20 Summit, well-known influencers from Indonesia will be campaigning to spread the word on the priority issues addressed in the G20 Presidency on November 15-16 in Bali, Indonesia. Through the #SaatnyaIndonesia campaign for #GerakBersama #G20Indonesia, influencers will share their contents on their social media from October to November 2022 regarding the Global Health Architecture, Digital Transformation, and Sustainable Energy Transition.

In this campaign, the Ministry of Communications and Informatics collaborates with several top national influencers to reach all levels of Indonesian society. The influencers will share various types of content related to the three main issues of the G20 Presidency through their social media for their millions of followers to see. For example, the contents will discuss the "20 Healthy Habits to Increase Productivity" to foster public understanding of the Global Health Architecture. While for the Sustainable Energy Transition, the content will advise on the "Different Ways to Love the Earth."

"The meeting of the G20 countries is expected to move Indonesia and the whole world towards economic recovery and sustainability. Therefore, it is essential to attract attention and invite people in Indonesia from all levels to participate in the G20 Presidency," says Usman Kansong, Director General of Information and Public Communications of the Indonesian Ministry of Communications and Informatics.

The influencers who will take part in the #SaatnyaIndonesia campaign are Nycta Gina (@missnyctagina) and Doctor Reisa Broto Asmoro (@reisabrotoasmoro), discussing the issue of Global Health Architecture, Doctor Tirta (@dr.tirta) on Digital Transformation issues, and Nadine Chandrawinata (@nadinelist) on Sustainable Energy Transitions.

The discussion of the Global Health Architecture issues in the G20 Presidency is a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The collaboration aims to ensure the readiness of the global community against future pandemics, as well as the existence of equal global health standards and a more inclusive global health system. Seeing the importance of this issue, influencer Nycta Gina who is also a doctor explains, "I am excited to have the opportunity to participate in the success of this G20 Presidency campaign. Hopefully, by posting about health issues on my social media account, people will be more enthusiastic about rising from the Covid-19 pandemic and having a healthier lifestyle."

Furthermore, Digital Transformation also received the spotlight at this year's G20 Summit, especially on cooperation between countries and all stakeholders. The discussions aim to restore the post-pandemic global economic order using more inclusive digitalization by supporting Indonesian MSMEs to enter the digital ecosystem.

The issue of the Sustainable Energy Transition will also be widely discussed and attended to at the G20 Summit. The pandemic and climate change have urged the global community to accelerate the transition to cleaner energy sources. Therefore, the G20 member countries' cooperation in the form of sustainable investment to accelerate the Sustainable Energy Transition is essential. "We must be wiser in taking from nature and pay attention to its sustainability. As one of the Influencers involved in this campaign, I invite the community to join me in changing your mindset and lifestyle towards Sustainability," explained Nadine Chandrawinata.

In addition to reaching the wider community, the Indonesian government's collaboration with these influencers is also an effort to make the G20 Presidency a success. The G20, or Group of Twenty, is an intergovernmental forum consisting of 19 countries and the European Union (EU). The G20 works to address significant issues related to the global economy. Indonesia was elected to be the chairman and host of the 17th G20 Presidency international forum, which consists of a series of activities that commenced in December 2021.
