Generating Cleaner Renewable Energy for Remote Regions of Indonesia: The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved $161m:  "The Renewable Energy Development Sector Project will connect about 76,000 new consumers to the power grid and benefit over 5 million people, of whom about one fifth are poor. In addition, ADB will administer a technical assistance (TA) grant of US$800,000 from its Danish Cooperation Fund for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency to pilot a scheme allowing 10,000 low-income families in Indonesia's outer islands to defer the start-up costs of connections... The project comprises 12 subprojects that will add a total of 82 megawatts of capacity in five remote regions of the outer islands. It will also strengthen associated power distribution networks.  The total cost of the project is estimated to be US$256 million, of which US$95 million will come from the Government and PLN (Perusahaan Listrik Negara), the State electricity enterprise."
