Delphos’s Eric Shumway speaks to Frontier about Myanmar’s growing electricity needs.
Delphos recently completed the first phase of a study on Myanmar’s energy sector under a project financed by the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). At the request of the Ministry of Electricity and Energy, the study was expanded to include the state of the national electricity grid and its capacity to handle power from renewable sources.
