The Energy Utility Partnership Program

“These exchanges have proven to be very useful for our utility companies involved because they were able to exchange their experience and learn from each other when new technologies in renewable energy are coming into the country.”
—Retno Sentianingsih, Energy Specialist, USAID Indonesia
