Myanmar 1,000MW Solar Tender Webinar

As you may know, the Ministry of Electricity and Energy (“MOEE”) of the Government of Myanmar has launched a tender for the provision of up to 1,000MW of solar power generation at various locations around the country. The Invitation to Bid was published yesterday on 18 May 2020 and the submission date is in just a few weeks, on 18 June 2020. 

VDB Loi will hold a live webinar on Friday 22 May 2020 at 2pm to share our insights on various aspects of the tender. 


  • What exactly do you bid on? Which tariff is EPGE expecting?
  • Is the land for solar power projects provided by EPGE?
  • Does Myanmar usually require bid security, pre-qualification?
  • Which Model PPA is Myanmar using? Are there any major changes and what are issues we should know about?
  • Is a local partner required or useful for power projects in Myanmar? What kind of partners do you need to qualify for tenders?
  • What is my financial exposure for this project?
  • Lessons learned from financing other renewable power projects in Myanmar
  • How can I find financing for this project in a limited time?
