This project is being implemented by the Inter-American Developemtn Bank (IDB) and it seeks to promote the use and development of renewable enrgy and energy efficiency in Suriname. Renewable energy is an important element of Suriname's strategy for 2020 as renewable energy can be crucial in providing a solution for electrification of the interior, where about 15% of the population has no access to electricity and and the rest is supplied by diesel generation. The project also assesses the feasability of energy efficient solutions and support policies and regulations to promote the use of renewable and energy efficient measures in Suriname.
