Myanmar is at a crossroad in regards to future power generation solutions. From April 2016, Myanmar will face a shortage of electricity and that the energy gap will widen at least over the next five years. In the country’s Energy Plan from 2015 to 2030 the production of electric power shall increase from 5 GW today to 29 GW in 2030 and thereby increasing households with access to electricity from 30% today to 100% in 2030. While the Myanmar government seems to favour coal-fired power plants, we believe that LNG is a better and cleaner alternative. The first power station based on LNG could be in production in about 30 months. We want to present this solution to Myanmar’s incoming government as the best way forward.
