USAID SINAR  builds upon the longstanding commitment and partnership between the U.S. Government and the Government of Indonesia in climate change mitigation in the energy sector. Through SINAR, USAID will help national and subnational governments, state-owned energy utilities, businesses, financial institutions (such as banks), universities, and other key players to :

  • Accelerate the deployment of advanced energy systems;
  • Improve the performance of energy utilities;
  • Advocate for transparent and best value procurement, and
  • Strengthen the institutional frameworks and capacity for energy sector transformation.


Collectively, these efforts will help Indonesia meet its ambitious renewable energy and energy efficiency targets while driving energy transformation that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. USAID SINAR works at the national level, while simultaneously engaging local governments in selected provinces to align national and sub-national plans and programs.


With ambitious climate targets and energy demand growing five percent a year, Indonesia is striving for universal electrification while at the same time reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable energy solutions will support Indonesia to advance these goals and bring greater prosperity to all corners of the archipelago. Energy security, equity, and sustainability are critical for driving inclusive economic growth.As of 2018, 98 percent of Indonesians enjoy access to electricity. The Government of Indonesia now seeks to reach the last mile while increasing the amount of energy from renewable sources in the national energy mix to 23 percent by 2025 (up from just 12 percent in 2018)



Through results-driven investment, USAID works with the Government of Indonesia, local leaders, the private sector, civil society and other development partners to strengthen democratic governance, environmental sustainability, economic growth, and health—while responding to public health and humanitarian crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
