Business Development Workshop | Mini-grid Deep Dive Series

The workshop will enable renewable energy project developers in Myanmar to understand the policy environment governing decentralized electrification, equip them with working knowledge about the best practices in mini-grid operations, and build a basic understanding of investment finance for more effective communications with prospective investors.

Majority of renewable energy SMEs operating in Myanmar are largely self-financed. In order to enable the country to transition to a green economy and achieve its Sustainable Energy for All Goals, these SMEs must access external financing to expand their operations and impact. This Workshop was designed to steer participating SMEs towards this direction.
