World Bank signs $3.45 million grant agreement with Myanmar for clean energy access

The World Bank Group and the Government of Myanmar have signed a grant agreement worth $3.45 million; this will help over 450,000 people in rural Myanmar gain access to clean energy. The funds will be used to develop a commercial market for quality solar products and support sustainable growth of the off-grid lighting market in rural, remote areas of Myanmar. The grant agreement has been co-funded by the Global Partnership for Results Based Approaches and the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program. The grant will be implemented by Myanmar’s Department of Rural Development, which will provide sub-grants to the private sector to develop supply chains (involving companies, retailers and consumers) for quality solar products.
