Indonesia Compact - Green Prosperity: Community-Based Off-Grid Renewable Energy Grant Portfolio
MCC’s $474 million Indonesia Compact (2013-2018) included the $288 million Green Prosperity (GP) Project that aimed to increase economic productivity and reduce land-based greenhouse gas emissions. The project funded 26 community-based off-grid (CBOG) renewable energy (RE) grants totaling $85.3 million. Some were designed as community-owned RE projects, while others were RE components of natural resource management projects. These grants sought to substitute renewable energy for fossil fuels in remote and rural communities, opening opportunities for social and economic improvements through access to electricity.
