On 28 February 2018, Dini Laraswati spoke at a regional development seminar in Jakarta, designed to discuss synergy between government and business entities regarding rural electrification.
At this event, Dini introduced the role that can be played by blended finance in achieving the global goal for sustainable development (for electricity access) and objectives of the Paris Agreement (by the use of renewable energy as opposed to fossil fuel). She advocated promotion of private-sector financing for solar PV rural electrification, by adopting aggregation and collateralization to reduce risk and initially providing public sector support, e.g. public sector grants and/or philanthropic funding.
