EnDev supported the Government of Indonesia to achieve its target for rural electrification through the installation of renewable energy mini-grids mainly based on micro-hydropower and solar PV.

EnDev supported 1,034 mini-grids with measures such as:

• Technical assistance and policy advise
• Capacity building through training, mentoring and workshops
• Encouraging entrepreneurial skills for rural business owners and mini-grid managers
• Promoting a sustainable monitoring approach and respective methods ,

All the supported mini-grids are community managed. The electrification component has been implemented in partnership with the Indonesian Government
especially with the Directorate of New and Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources that was established in 2010. In addition, EnDev Indonesia has collaborated with provincial governments, local communities, universities, companies, and NGOs.
