Efficiency Energy Promotes Better Water Services

Training participants learn measure water flow in a pumping system

Indonesian water utilities spend an average of around 10 percent (of IDR 509/m3) of their operating costs on energybased on the 2022 Water Utility Performance Evaluation Report. This leads to high water tariffs due to increased production and distribution costs.

USAID IUWASH Tangguh collaborated with USAID SINAR to bolster the capacity of six water utility personnel on how to implement certain practices to reduce energy use in their organizations and sustainably manage it. Held from January 30 to February 2, 2024, the training combined classroom and field practice for participants from the cities of Malang and Pasuruan, as well as the districts of Gresik Kupang, Maros, and Takalar.

Mr. Dades Prinandes, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing’s Head of Technical Planning Sub-Directorate, highlighted the training’s critical role in helping water utilities understand the importance of being energy efficient. Mr. Yermias, Kupang district participant, said. “I hope I can measure our pumping system’s energy consumption and develop a proposal to reduce energy intake for the pumps.”
Through the efficiency energy, USAID IUWASH Tangguh supports the Government of Indonesia to achieve 45 percent of safely managed drinking water in 2030.

USAID IUWASH Tangguh supports the #10thWorldWaterForum to achieve sustainable safely managed drinking water through joint actions and innovations.
