Gearing Up the Green Energy Development: New Directions and Strategies

After more than 50 years under the military ruling, Myanmar is poised for change under the leadership of the first elected civilian president. The new government along with multilateral development agencies is committed to take Myanmar into new heights of development; boosting growth in Myanmar with high emphasis on capacity building, infrastructure development and improving rural livelihood and reducing poverty.

With the help of global international financial institutions, the Government of Myanmar has developed a National Electrification Plan in meeting the increased demand of electricity from 14,500 MW in 2015 to 58,000 MW by 2030. This initiative targeting $6 billion in investments from 2016 – 2030, looks into increasing power generation capacity of 4,414 MW in 2014 to 19,780 MW by 2030; increasing electricity consumption per capita of 164KWh in 2014 to 800KWh by 2030 and increasing household electrification connection capacity to 7.5 million, which will translates into 87% electrification rate nationwide by 2030.

The hosting of the 4th Myanmar Green Energy Summit 2016 is to provide an interactive platform for potential investors and key players of the industry from over 25 countries to get updated on the new directions, investment policies and market potential of green energy in Myanmar; at the same time discuss strategies and share insights to support the National Electrification Plan, improve policies and regulation around electricity and renewable energy, and develop framework to plan out future electrification programs.
