  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The economy relies on resource-based industries with the biggest contribution to the GDP coming from extractive industries, especially oil and gas, and forest products. Natural gas is the country's most important source of export revenues (US$3.4 bn in fiscal year (FY) 2017-2018, i.e. more than 20% of total export value).

    The Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) coordinates the ...

  • Energy Supply


    Myanmar has abundant energy resources, particularly hydropower and natural gas. The country's theoretical hydroelectricity potential, only a small part of which is being exploited, is estimated at 100 GW. Proved conventional natural gas reserves amounted to 256 bcm, while proved coal bed methane reserves amounted to 90 bcm, with the Government exploring potential additional discoveries (end ...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity tariffs are fixed by the Government. They are highly subsidized for households. In 2018, the price of electricity was US$2.8c/kWh for households and US$7.0c/kWh for industrial customers.

    Electricity tariffs increased sharply in June 2019 for both households and industries with a consumption above 30 kWh/month: by more than 70% from 30 to 100 kWh/month to nearly 150% ...

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2018, consumption per capita was 0.44 toe. Electricity consumption per capita remains among the lowest in Asia (around 350 kWh in 2018 vs 1 380 kWh in the ASEAN).

    Total energy consumption has been rising rapidly by 8%/year on average since 2013, reaching 24 Mtoe in 2018.

    Biomass accounts for 46% of the energy consumption, oil for 31%, and natural gas for 17% (2018); the role ...
