Dr. G.P. Shukla, professor of the practice of public policy at the Duke Center for International Development (DCID), co-authored a recently released World Bank paper evaluating the potential of geothermal energy to meet Indonesia’s growing need for electricity while protecting the environment.

DCID has been collaborating with the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) since 2012 on the joint publication, “Scaling-Up Renewable Geothermal Energy in Indonesia: An Integrated Approach to Evaluating a Green Finance Investment.” As a result of the study, the World Bank awarded loans totaling $300 million to help Indonesia pursue environmentally friendly power projects for the first time.
