This forum intends to bring together relevant stakeholders to engage in productive discussions on directing more investments towards Myanmar's off - grid renewable energy sector.
The Asian Development Bank is hosting the Myanmar Off-grid Renewable Energy Investment Forum under the ongoing technical assistance for Off-Grid Renewable Energy Demonstration Project on 9 May 2017 in Nay Pyi Taw. This international networking and knowledge exchange event will bring together the Asian Development Bank, Government of Myanmar officials from the Department of Rural Development and the Ministry of Energy and Electricity, project developers, and investors to engage in productive discussions on directing more investments towards Myanmar’s off-grid renewable energy sector.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about ADB’s mini-grids investments and initiatives and future energy sector investments in Myanmar. Lessons learned from ADB’s pilot mini-grid systems will be shared with participants. In addition, the Forum will present a variety of tools to support project developers engage in mini-grid initiatives. These include a geospatial investor friendly plan, a geospatial web-mapping tool, business models and feasibility studies for mini-grids, and a mini-grid development guidebook with advice on how to engage with village communities in off-grid electrification projects. Discussions on accessing finance for mini-grids in Myanmar will also take place.
The Forum will feature the Government of Myanmar's latest plans for developing a regulatory framework that will govern future mini-grid projects. Project developers and other industry stakeholders will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the upcoming regulatory framework during this workshop.
