Renewable Energy Description:

The 2015 Myanmar Energy Master Plan is put forward by the Asian Development Bank and Myanmar Ministry of Energy in order to analyse energy demand development from 2014 to 2035 along five supply expansion scenarios. These feed into a national investment strategy in energy sector infrastructure and form the basis for recommendation on institution building for Myanmar's future national energy planning.

The plan envisions a 15% - 20% share of renewable energy in 2020 in the total installed capacity, most of which will be used to advance rural renewable energy purposes. The preferred energy scenario shows energy generation mix of 57% hydropower, 30% coal, 8% natural gas and 5% solar and wind by 2030.

The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) strives to put in place multiple rural electrification schemes including various renewable energy options including solar energy, wind farms, biomass, biomass thermo-chemical energy, and mini-hydro.
