Off-grid Solar Power Projects in Myanmar_DRD-1 Projects
Myanmar has a population of about 51.4 million, 70% of which are rural residents, and 84% of rural households are located in areas without electricity. The annual electricity demand and consumption of residents are growing rapidly. At the same time, due to the heavy dependence on seasonal hydropower generation, the existing power generation system cannot meet the peak demand in the dry season. Although the gas power generation in Myanmar has increased slightly in recent years, the reliability and coverage of the overall power supply are still low. Power shortage and power interruption are the main problems in Myanmar.
At the same time, power shortage limits the economic development of Myanmar, and the basic life of the people cannot be better improved.
