Sept. 8, 1997 Myanmar is accelerating its electric power development to meet the increasing demand in the country. Six hydropower stations, a natural gas power plant and some waste thermal and steam power stations are being built in the country.
Altogether 11,500 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity per day -- 4,500 MWh from hydropower stations and 7,000 MWh from natural stations -- are being generated and transmitted along a 20,606-km main power line.
According to official statistics, the total installed capacity for electric power by the Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise (MEPE) and other organisations was 1,393 MW in the 1996-97 fiscal year (from April 1996 to March 1997), up from 1,322 MW in the previous fiscal year.
The total electricity generation went to 4,905 million kWh in 1996-97, 328 million kWh more than the previous fiscal year.
The statistics also show Myanmar's power sector achieved a growth rate of 7.9 % in the 1996-97 fiscal year over the previous year's.
