Lighting Up Lives
Powering good in Myanmar with transformers
With the rapid economic development in Myanmar in recent years, the demand for electric power in the country has also been increasing rapidly. However, the lack of power infrastructure to support this growing demand is a major issue. The Myanmar government has set itself the medium to long term goal of increasing its electrification ratio from the level of 37% in 2016 to 100% by 2030*.
One aspect of this initiative is the Myanmar National Electrification Project (NEP), which is a plan to achieve electricity supply to every household in Myanmar through the establishment of a nationwide power distribution grid, with funding from the World Bank.
