Powering communities by supporting innovative clean energy solutions

Pawarim Komuniti is a new Off-Grid Electrification Program funded by the PNG-Australia Partnership to support access to clean energy in rural and remote communities in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

The program is part of Australia’s commitment under the PNG Electrification Partnership to help PNG meet the target of connecting 70% of the country to electricity by 2030.
