Overall Summary: 
The Myanmar Energy Master Plan (EMP) prioritises the long term benefit of the country by ensuring sustainable energy sector development and conserving the environment sustainably. The planning process is also designed to ensure the integration of Global and ASEAN commitments in Myanmar Energy Master Plan. Therefore, we hope that Myanmar Energy Master Plan can provide the strategic supports and inspirations to the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in adopting national strategies for sustainable and reliable energy supply, ultimately complementing to United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals of 2015. It defines a long-term optimal fuel supply mix taking into account a country’s primary resource endowments. The EMP is guided by the principles of long-term cost effectiveness, environmental responsibility and security of energy supply.
Renewable Energy
RE targets: 
By 2020, it is planned to achieve the 15% - 20% share of renewable energy in the total installed capacity. Most of renewable energy sources other than large hydro will be used for rural electrification purposes.
Energy institutional structures: 
The overall responsibility to promote the rural electrification has been recently transferred from the Ministry of Industry (MOI) to the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Rural Development (MOLFRD). --- The Ministry of Industries, Science and Technology, and Agriculture are jointly entrusted with promoting renewable energy, and the Ministry of Environment Conservation and Forestry, and the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation deal with all biomass-related energy needs.
