This comprehensive study proves that renewable energy for Myanmar is not only technically feasible but also economically feasible compared to the so-called “cheap” traditional technologies. The development of Myanmar’s power sector will require multi-billion dollar investment over the next three decades and our analysis shows that a diverse mix of renewable energy, in combination with energy efficiency measures, will be the best solution for the sustainable power development of Myanmar.

Renewable energy goes far beyond the common perception of solar lanterns and solar home systems. Large scale progress can be very fast. Italy installed 9,000 MW of solar power in 2011, almost twice the installed capacity of Myanmar which is currently around 5,000 MW. In 2015, Japan also installed 9,000 MW of solar power within a year.
