This is a great opportunity for Indian solar power plant developers also to tap the market of Myanmar as the country is now emphasizing more on building renewable energy capacity especially solar energy.
In a recent Myanmar’s Power Ministry’s meeting also it was decided to speed up the power projects which were halted due to Covid-19 crisis and further started work on building new capacity additions as well as it will help the country’s growing progress.
Solar can play a significant role in achieving the country’s climate change goals and help in setting it on a sustainable development path.
The country is having a wide scope for distributed energy also as just 42 percent of households in the country had access to electricity, as per the June 2019 assessment by Smart Power Myanmar, a national platform established to accelerate the spread of decentralized renewable energy solutions in Myanmar.
