Just 38% of Myanmar’s population has access to reliable energy. Meeting this acute deficit is critical to the country’s development journey, but as the world’s second most vulnerable country to the effects of climate change, climate mitigation and ecosystem protection is equally important.
Thanks to a historic lack of dependence on fossil fuels Myanmar is in the unique position to bypass the energy mistakes of its neighbours, and to protect the ecosystems which will in turn protect the people who call this country home. To realise this vision, we are working with the government towards finding a solution to provide electricity for the entire country based primarily on renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.
In the race for electrification we also need to ensure we are resilient through climate change mitigation and ecosystem protection. Fortunately Myanmar is in the unique position to bypass the energy mistakes of its neighbours and leapfrog into a future fuelled by renewable energy.
