ENGIE, the French energy giant, has been increasingly active in the off-grid clean energy space in India and Africa since 2016, and has taken a minority stake in Mandalay Yoma Energy, to focus on Myanmar’s national programme for total electrification by 2030, in a country that has at least 27 million people without access to power.
According to Energy-Storage news, ENGIE has teamed up with a Myanmar-focused off-grid energy specialist to help spur rural electrification across the Southeast Asian country with mini-grids combining PV, diesel and battery storage.
“As a market leader we want to consolidate this leadership and move onto bigger numbers,” Nathalie Risteau, director and co-founder of Mandalay Yoma added. “Out of 30,000 villages which are unelectrified in Myanmar we would be happy to do 1,000 in the next 3-5 years, and each village could have between 50-100kW of solar PV on average, with varying battery sizes. ——————–***——————–
