This effort was embodied by the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA) of 2001. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved the Electricity Market and Transmission Development Project in 2002 to support the government’s restructuring and privatization plans.

Indonesia: Power Transmission Improvement Sector Project

In the energy sector, the strategies of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) were to make more energy available in a least-cost and environment-friendly manner and improve access to it for all, particularly the poor.

The project was part of the government’s strategy (i) to expand the country’s electricity supply based on a least-cost manner, (ii) improve supply efficiency and reliability, and (iii) make power generation, and distribution more financially viable through the Power Sector Restructuring Strategy of 1998.
