PNG-Australia partnership

New clean energy projects

The program, launched in November 2019, aims to improve access to energy in rural communities across Papua New Guinea, by investing in innovative off-grid energy projects.

Pawarim Komuniti is part of Australia’s commitment under the PNG Electrification Partnership to help PNG meet its rural electrification targets.

The six new projects will help more than 100 villages improve community lighting, water supply, cooking facilities, education and distance learning, and phone charging. Partners will deliver projects in West Sepik, Western and Oro, Morobe and Madang provinces.
