The ministry is aiming to generate 8 percent of the country’s electricity through renewable sources of energy by 2021.

By 2025, the target is for 12pc of all electricity generated in Myanmar to be renewable.

Two more solar plants are expected to be constructed “soon,” U Maung Maung Kyaw said. The plants will be built in Myingyan and Wundwin in Mandalay Region and are expected to have the capacity to generate 150MW of electricity each.

Wind-powered projects can potentially also be developed in Chin State, Rakhine State, Ayeyarwaddy Region, Yangon Region, Shan State, Kayah State, Tanintharyi Region, Mon State and Kayin State, according to the MOEE.

The government has also promised to provide the entire country with access to power by 2030.
