Myanmar Energy Statistics 2019
Insufficient information and inadequate capacity to carry out comprehensive energy planning are identified as the main contributing factors to the current circumstances of the energy sector in The Republic of the Union of Myanmar. To help overcome these constraints, the Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MEE) requested technical support from the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA). ERIA’s president responded very positively to Myanmar’s request, and ERIA has deployed technical staff and expertise to support staff of the Oil and Gas Planning Department (OGPD) of the MEE with data collection and analysis for the formulation of this ‘Myanmar Energy Statistics 2019’.
This project and publication have greatly enhanced energy policy planning in Myanmar. To ensure the sustainability of the Project, the OGPD will establish a systematic collection of energy data from the electricity sector, Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE), Myanmar Petrochemical Enterprise, Myanmar Petroleum Products Enterprise, and other related sectors, so energy data and statistics can continue to be published. Having good energy statistics will allow Myanmar to contribute to and share data with ASEAN, International Energy Agency, Joint Organization Data Initiative (JODI), and other international forums and organisations.
