EERE’s project on Sustainable Energy for Remote Indonesian Grids (SERIG) launched in 2013 to support Indonesia’s efforts to develop clean energy and increase access to electricity in remote communities across the country.  The SERIG project is blazing the trail for U.S. exports of clean energy technologies and services to Indonesia, a country with the world’s fourth largest population, a rapidly expanding economy, and aggressive goals for renewable energy and electricity access.  The SERIG project has developed strategies to accelerate deployment of renewable electricity in remote communities across Indonesia’s 6,000 inhabited islands and is partnering with the Government of Indonesia to implement these strategies.  SERIG has also conducted technical and economic analyses of renewable energy technologies for displacing diesel generation on three remote pilot grids.  The project team is working with U.S. developers, engineering companies, and technology providers to attract development of the pilot sites to demonstrate American technologies.
