RE-Talk ASEAN: Inside 1GW Solar Tender in Myanmar

Formerly Asean Solar + Energy Storage

November 14 - 15, 2022

Myanmar is one of the most poorly electrified countries across Southeast Asia, with an average electrification rate of around 42% only. The country’s electricity consumption per capita also ranks among the lowest in the world at just 227 kWh, whereas the world’s average per capita has already reached 3,000 kWh.

Being a nation blessed with abundant sunshine and strong economic growth, it is a great idea to bridge the country’s electric supply gap with carbon free solutions. However, building a business is not as easy as building a solar power plant.
