5th MPS (Myanmar Power Summit)

15-16 Nov, 2018 - Yangon, MYANMAR

Meliá Yangon

“Meeting the Growing Electricity Needs
Through Partnerships”

Given that only 30 per cent of the population in Myanmar has access to electricity, Myanmar has to optimize and tap on natural resources and technology advancement for efficient clean power generation in order to ease the electricity demand.

As work is still in progress for the huge LNG to power projects, foreign investments continue to flow-in for natural gas-fired power plants projects, especially in Mandalay as well as Myingyan township.  

With electricity consumption expecting to rise by 19 percent per year for the next 12 years, government subsidies of electricity tariffs will correspondingly increase.  The government is mulling over options to raise electricity prices on the middle and above income earners in the country, to mitigate against this widening loss.  

And to further lighten the subsidies burden, Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) is aiming to have, by 2021, up to 8% of the electricity powered by renewable sources such as hydro and solar.  Thereafter, renewable power's share will be raise to 12% of total electricity required.

The first solar power plant, Minbu solar power plant in Magway region of 170MW capacity, is set to begin generating electricity by February 2019, and additional five solar power projects are in the pipeline.

To reach out to the remaining 70% of the population in the national electrification plan, rural electrification is proving to be economically feasible solutions to achieve universal electrification by 2030.  Through mini-grids and off-grids power projects, rural electrification is vital to improving the livelihoods and economic opportunities for the bulk of the population in the remote areas. 

At the 5th MPS (Myanmar Power Summit) – find out latest project development in Myanmar’s electric power sector, and gain first hand insight key officials and leading regional players on:

  • Prospects of electricity tariffs & policy reforms
  • Outlook of LNG to power
  • LPG as fuel to power concept
  • Regional IPP & power market growth & how Myanmar is evolving, including rise of renewable energy

Myanmar Relies on Gas Powered Plants to Tackle Power Shortage

Posted on : 25 Sep, 2018

In a bid to relieve some of its electricity woos, Myanmar is building gas-fired power plants.
The Sembcorp Minygyan Power Company along with the Ministry of Electricity and Energy of Myanmar is building a 225-MW power project in Mandalay - on a build-operate-transfer (BOT) model. The Mandalay plant will have two high-efficiency gas turbines and waste heat generators. The first phase of the Myingyan Power Plant has already begun and it is distributing 143 MW to the National Grid. The project is one of Myanmar’s largest gas-fired power plants and has a key role in meeting the country’s growing demand for electricity.
This year, Myanmar also inaugurated the Thaketa gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Yangon - which is a joint venture between Myanmar’s Ministry of Electricity and Power, U Energy Thaketa Power and China's Union Resources and Engineering Co. (UREC).
With a capacity to generate 106 MW, the plant is expected to ease the electricity shortage in Yangon region. The plant is built in the Thaketa township, 16 km east of Yangon and 25.6 km away from the Thilawa Special Economic Zone.
Know more about Myanmar’s gas-fired power generation at CMT’s 5th MPS (Myanmar Power Summit) on 15-16 November, 2018 in Yangon.

Myanmar aims to substantially increase power generation in next few years

Posted on : 01 Jun, 2018

Myanmar is a power starved nation with only 60 million of its people connected to the electrical grid. Power cuts and blackouts are common in Myanmar and the government is trying to correct the situation by increasing electricity generation in the next few years.
The country aims to double its electric power capacity by 2021 through several natural gas-fired power plants with further plans of increasing its power generation by over fourfold by 2030.
Already four gas-fired power plants are planned at a total cost of US$5.16 billion – expected to be built by 2021. These plants are estimated to raise electricity generation capacity by 3,100MW.
The plants would mostly use imported liquefied natural gas (LNG). Although Myanmar has gas reserves, the country exports most of its existing offshore production. It plans to deploy floating gas storage and regasification units to store LNG for these power projects.
To speed up the process, Myanmar's government has signed agreements to "start preliminary engineering work," such as environmental assessments, with six companies including - TOTAL, Siemens AG , Zhefu Holding, TTCL Public Company Ltd , Sinohydro Corporation and Myanmar-based Supreme Trading.
The latest developments in Myanmar’s electricity generation is discussed at CMT's 5th Myanmar Power Summit, on November 15-16, 2018 in Yangon.
