Electricity for Indonesia’s remote schools

The World Bank (WB) is now providing electric-generating equipment for several schools located in remote areas in Indonesia’s Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB). The assistance is delivered under the Safe and Energy Saved-Schools and Islamic Schools (SMAHE) program jointly conducted by WB and its counterparts that include the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), the People’s Welfare Coordinating Ministry and the Education and Culture Ministry.

“Equipment to generate electricity is provided under the program and the equipment uses renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power.
