A solar energy-centered microgrid start-up — one that develops what it calls micro power systems — is bringing electrification for the first time to towns and villages in Myanmar.

Gaining the support of foreign development organizations such as Norway’s Norfund, Yoma Micro Power has installed 51 off-grid micro power plants in rural Myanmar towns and villages and plans to deliver another 200 by the end of this year. They combine solar PV, battery energy storage and diesel generators for back-up power, all governed by intelligent microgrid control and management software.

It’s estimated that more than 60% of Myanmar’s population lacks access to modern electricity services. Some 4 million reportedly lack any access to electricity, according to international development agency statistics.
