In the News: Off-Grid Solar Market and Lighting Myanmar Featured in Local Publication

Recently, Lighting Myanmar was featured in Frontier, Myanmar’s most reputable English-language publication.

Launched in June 2016, the IFC-led Lighting Myanmar project is a key component of the Government of Myanmar’s National Electrification Plan, which aims to achieve universal access to sustainable electricity services by 2030. To support this goal, the project will assist international and Myanmar-based companies in creating a sustainable market for high-quality off-grid energy solutions, including solar lanterns, solar home systems, and potentially mini-grids.  The focus of this work will be in central Myanmar, with a target of supporting the sale of 800,000 quality-verified products by June 2022.
