Solar Resource and Photovoltaic Power Potential of Myanmar

This report presents results of the solar resource mapping and photovoltaic power potential evaluation, as a part of a technical assistance for the renewable energy development in Myanmar, implemented by the World Bank.

The study has two objectives: 1) Improve the awareness and knowledge of resources for solar energy technologies by producing a comprehensive countrywide data set and maps based on satellite and meteorological modelling. This report evaluates key solar climate features, and geographic and time variability of solar power potentialin the country. 2) Provide support information for installation of meteorological stations in Myanmar by identifying and evaluating the most feasible areas.
