About Sumbawa Regency, Indonesia

Sumbawa Regency is the local government for the islands Sumbawa and Moyo and has a population of over 500,000 people. The agriculture, fishery, and forestry sectors are the highest contributors to its regional GDP.

Sumbawa Island is electrified through the Sumbawa-Bima grid system, with most of the electricity generated from oil and coal sources. However, there is a high potential for electricity generation from hydropower, biomass, solar, and geothermal energy. Although the electrification ratio is high, there is still scope to improve the reliability of clean energy access in rural areas.
