Prosperity Fund Indonesia Low Carbon Energy Programme (Mentari)

The programme drives transformational social, economic and environmental change in Indonesia by supporting transition to renewable energy, with a particular focus on communities in the poorest and most remote areas. Access to clean, reliable and affordable energy enables sustained economic growth, reducing poverty while improving health and educational outcomes, particularly for women and girls; all while reducing emissions and improving air quality. The procurement challenged market norms on pricing and transparency, using a bespoke and innovative charging model based on actual costs, capped to incentivise impact delivery with reinvestment potential to deliver more where actual costs were lower than projected.
