The Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) share the mutual goal of improving performance of water utility companies to increase access to clean water in Indonesia, particularly to address two technical challenges that are especially impactful: (1) high rates of non-revenue water (NRW); and (2) poor energy efficiency (EE).
NRW refers to water that has been been produced and is lost or not billed to the customer due to various reasons, including leaks, metering inaccuracies, or theft. EE concerns the amount of energy consumed to distribute clean water to the customer. Currently, NRW remains a huge challengen in various PDAMs in Indonesia and many pumping systems owned by PDAMs have yet to be energy efficient.
To provide a comprehensive and measurable NRW reduction and control and EE improvement in Indonesia, SECO collaborates with USAID to carry out a three-year technical assistance program, implemented under the current USAID IUWASH PLUS program with seven PDAMs in two regions, i.e. West Java and Central Java provinces.
The seven partner PDAMs are located in Depok City, Bogor District, Karawang District, Surakarta City, Magelang City, Magelang District, and Sukoharjo District.
