|| This report assesses the impacts of the rural electrification intervention Micro Hydro Power Project (MHPP) implemented by the Government of Indonesia and Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). MHPP supported between 2006 and 2009 the implementation of 96 micro hydro power (MHP) schemes in Sumatra and Sulawesi. These activities were funded as part of the first phase of the German-Dutch Energy Partnership Energising Development (EnDev), an output oriented program that aims at providing modern energy to 6.1 million people in 21 countries. The objective of this study is to examine the effective electricity usage of households that have connected to an MHP, i.e. what those households do with electricity and to what extent this changes the households’ life.
