Some of the largest rivers in the ASEAN region are in Myanmar. The International Hydropower Association has identified potential hydropower of up to 100GW, Myanmar still has one of the lowest electrification rates in Southeast Asia.
 
Hydropower currently provides two-thirds of the country’s electricity, with approximately 3,151MW of installed capacity from 27 hydropower plants with 10MW capacity, and 35 hydropower plants with less than 10MW. Given the enormous potential, Myanmar has pursued policy reforms to capitalize on its natural resources, spur development and attract private investment.
 
With the assistance of the Asian Development Bank, the national energy policy has been reformed, with a new Electricity Law passed in October 2014, and a new Investment Law passed in 2016.
