Join the breakfast briefing on The Myanmar Opportunity for LNG, Gas-to-Power and Renewables
Hosted by VDB Loi
The Myanmar Opportunity for LNG, Gas-to-Power and Renewables
In 2017, the newly elected democratic Government of Myanmar has lifted all of the restrictions on foreign access to the electricity sector in the country. Foreign companies may now own 100% of all types of electricity generation, as well as transmission and distribution. In a country where still 70% of the population has no electricity, promoting foreign investment in the power sector is one of the key priorities of the Government.
As several LNG projects seek Government approval, with over 300MW in solar PPAs signed and while the authorities negotiate the first hydro PPAs with foreign IPPs, Myanmar may be at the cusp of an energy revolution.
At this unique practical briefing, leading Myanmar law firm and frequent advisor to the Government, VDB Loi shares their experience structuring energy investment into “Asia’s last big win”.
