Connecting The Industry Digitally

24 - 27 November 2020

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.
