Implication of Solar Energy on Myanmar's Green Energy Mix for
A Sustainable Future

Solar is one of the most ubiquitously available sources of green energy and the most suitable for distributed power generation bringing power generation to where it is needed. Unlike other sources of green energy, it is widely scalable owing to its modular technology to match future increase in load.

Solar energy presents a great opportunity for Myanmar’s decentralized and grid connected power generation, as 70% of the population live in remote areas.

Quick Facts on Solar Energy in Myanmar

  • Solar energy has the potential to generate 51,973.8 TWh/year, with an average of over 5 sun hours per day.
  • The average solar radiation in Myanmar is more than 5 kWh per sq.m per day during the dry season. Solar radiation in Myanmar varies from 2.3-3.2 kWh/m2/day in the extreme north and south regions while majority of the Myanmar including the central region have good solar radiation ranging from 3.6-5.2 kWh/m2/day.
