IES is pleased to announce that on 8th January 2016, the Myanmar’s National Energy Management Committee (NEMC) officially launched the Myanmar Energy Master Plan at a ceremony at Hilton Hotel in Nay Pyi Taw, following an address by vice president U Nyan Tun.
Work on the Energy Master Plan, the product of work undertaken by IES in association with MMIC, commenced in 2014 under Technical Assistance to the Ministry of Energy under Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction administered by Asian Development Bank. The integrated plan sets out strategies to ensure a sustainable, affordable and secure supply of energy for Myanmar over the longer-term. These strategies take account of existing infrastructure, fuel supplies, availability of resources, competency in terms of technology and price, cooperation between the government, public and private sectors, environmental and social factors.
The government, ministries, international non-government organisations, private associations and the ADB collaborated to develop the Master Plan.
