The Electricity Distribution Project is designed to support the expansion of electricity distribution in Jakarta and provide consulting services for power sector management.
As a result of years of difficult political and economic conditions, Indonesia's electric power facilities had experienced serious neglect; the public power sector had been mismanaged and the power supply was inadequate. The Bank Group's first funding to the energy sector, a $15 million IDA credit, will both expand the electricity distribution system in and around the capital city of Jakarta and improve the organization and efficiency of the entire power sector by providing assistance and training in operations, engineering, finance, and management.
