Through SINAR, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) supports Indonesia’s goal to expand reliable and equitable energy services to advance sustainable development and inclusive economic growth. 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 (1) accelerate the deployment of advanced energy systems, (2) improve the performance of energy utilities, (3) advocate for transparent and best value procurement, and (4) 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.



USAID SINAR helped a 98.4 MW Rantau Dedap Geothermal Power Project in South Sumatra reach commercial operations and a 6 MW Bayang Nyalo Hydro Power Project in West Sumatra secure $14.6 million in financing. As a result, more than 1.2 million people have benefited from improved energy services along with a reduction of more than 58,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
