They will finance, construct and operate the transmission system. MEPE distributes electricity through the national grid to 5 states and 6 divisions. IPPs cannot own transmission lines. However, about private participation, private sector has been allowed to cooperate with MOEP-1, MOEP-2 and MEPE in generation, distribution, sale and service. IPPs can jointly invest with the ministries. Small generator enterprises can supply power to consumers.
8 Generation MixHydropower is the main fuel source in the country. In 2008, electricity generated from hydroelectricity was 60.83% of total generation. Gas and steam power are the second ranked fuel used.Currently, there are the following power projects:-14 Hydropower stations-10 gas turbine and thermal power plants-1 Coal fired power station

This can be due to a number of factors including the low efficiency of power plants in generating power. Another possible reason is that power generated is also exported to neighboring countries (peak demand in the graph is only an indicator for domestic demand).
11 Trans-Burma dual pipelines construction begin soon
12 Dynamics of Electricity Sector After Burma attained independence in 1948, the government established the Electricity Supply Board in 1951 and thus began the government’s monopoly on utilities (before that, some local business were able to generate electricity).In 1972, Electricity Supply Board was reorganized to become the ‘Electricity Power Corporation (EPC). The Ministry of Energy was also formed in 1985 as was responsible for the oil and gas sectors as well as for electricity generation and distribution.Ultimately, on the 15th of November 1997, under the State Law and Order Restoration Council, the Ministry of Electricity Power was established. The Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise (MEPE) was also formed at this time.MEPE continues to serve as the State utility company while the the Ministry restructured into to two ministries, the Ministry of Electricity Power (1) and (2). See Burma Power SectorSteps towards PrivatizationIn late November 2005, to meet increasing demands from new satellite towns and industrial zones, the government started to allow private agencies to supply electricity. Under the Yangon City Electricity Supply Board Law, small businesses in Yangon can generate and sell power to consumers. However, once implemented the government encountered protests from consumers who faced high costs from small generators fueled by an expensive commodity, oil. In addition, generators and other suppliers also faced higher costs once they had to conform to standards set by the government.Though the government has allowed for private investments, the main generation plants and the entire transmission system are still under the control of Burma’s government.
13 Burma Power PolicyBurma’s economic development strategies, especially in its energy sector are driven by centralized government decision-making. The Burmese domestic energy market is influenced both by regional and international investment flows from major regional states looking for energy resources.Burma’s natural resource rich country including an abundance of gas and oil reserves and high hydropower potential are being exploited. Investors from the region including Thailand, China, South Asian Countries, South Korean, and the GMS countries are all involved in extractive industries within the country. In addition to reaping high profits from these trade opportunities, the government is also using the investment ventures as useful tools in its battle with minority ethnic groups who currently occupy large swathes of resource rich lands. In the name of development, the government has been expelling the groups from construction sites and economic development zones.Though the Burmese government claims that energy sector development is vital for meeting the population’s basic needs and overall development strategy, Burma’s electrification rate is very low, even after years of resource exploitation. In 2008, 42.8 Million of Burma’s million population lived without electricity. Or, according to UN statistics, only 5% of all Burmese citizens have access to electricity even though the government’s stated goal is to increase electrification rates to 60% by 2020.During , Burma’s energy sector plans to continue oil and gas pipeline construction, oil and gas extraction plans, hydroelectric power development, and transmission line construction both for domestic use and for regional interconnection plans.LinksPower Planning SubpageDynamics of Electricity Sector Subpage
14 Burma Power PlanningIn order to achieve its economic and social development plans of 12% annual GDP Growth, Burma’s Fourth Short-Term Five-Year Plan (2006/ /2011) was formulated to meet this stated target. One of power-related objectives in the five year plan is ‘To develop electric power and energy sector to be in conformity with developing trend industries’.In addition, specific Long-term Policy for the Energy Sector is as follows:Sustainable use of natural resources to support the economic growth in a sustainable manner;Efficient utilization of available energy resources;Smooth and reliable energy supplies for building a modem agro industrial based nation;A well balanced use of energy resources by the creation of an equal distribution of the share of various primary energy sources for conservation;Promoting the development and utilization of all available renewable energy resources;Creating an attractive base for further investment in energy and energy related ventures.Regional policy and cooperation in infrastructure development in order to support investment and trade in the region results in theGovernment’s plans for near term cross-country cooperation activities as follows:Linked infrastructure including hydropower power plants, power lines, pipelines and supporting road networksShared infrastructure including road s, channels for navigations, bridges and etc.Shared link or independent infrastructure for import and export of oil, gas petrochemicals and other related productsMyanmar Electric Power Enterprise (MEPE), a state-owned enterprise, has been distributing electricity generated by major hydropower and gas turbine stations. The national grid supplies 94 % of the nation’s power needs while another 6% comes from off-grid isolated energy sources. MEPE’s objectives for the country’s development is as follows:Developing Hydropower for base load and gas turbine for peak loadIn order to optimize the use of natural gas by gas turbine, combined cycle power plants are implementedTo expand the national gridTo revive the study of alternative production of electricity by using waste products including rice husks, etc. Using electricity by firing boilers to generate electricity meeting local requirements instead of utilizing the main grid’s power is encouragedTo reduce loss of electricity incurred from transmission and distributionIn remote areas where electricity from hydropower through the national grid cannot be utilized, the generation and distribution of electricity will be performed by diesel generating sets, wind and solar facilitates
15 Burma Power Planning (Con’t) Power Development Plans and Transmission Interconnection ProjectsAccording to its power demand forecast,in 2030, Burma will have a peak demand of7, MW (peak demand in 2008 was1,061.2 MW).During , several projects will beDeveloped. At present, 19 hydroelectric powerprojects are under construction. Furthermore,18 cross border hydropower power projectsare currently being planned through investments by companies and/or stateowned enterprises from China, Thailand and India. If these projects are completed, their total installed capacity will rise to 19,413 MW. Meanwhile, in 2009 Burma current installed capacity is only 2,255.9 MW.Transmission systemTo facilitate power transmission, during , the government plans to construct 62 transmission lines throughout Burma in the near future (at present, transmission lines are in operation )

In addition, ERC serves as a regulator in the system.
19 Generation MixThailand uses natural gas as its major fuel to generate electricity, 72.5% in Lignite and coal are used 11% and 8.4% respectively.Installed generating capacity from April until August in 2010 reached 30, MW. In 2009, the installed capacity was 29, MW. Share of Power Generation by Fuel Type January to October 2010 The accumulated power generation from January to October is 134, GWh. At the end of 2008, the generation reached 148, Meanwhile, in 2009, the total generation was 145, GWh which represents a decrease between 2008 and 2009 of 2.04%. Peak Demand of 2010 happened in May, at 24,009.9 MW whereas in 2008 and 2009 peak demands were 22,045 MW and 22,568.9 MW respectively.
20 Thailand Power PolicyOverview Thailand’s power policy is driven by two key factors: continued economic growth driven by the industrial sector and energy sector financiers as well as ambitious plans to be the energy leader in the region. Thailand’s stated goal of being the “Hub of the ASEAN Grid” is at the core of its energy investments. Thailand’s centralized power planning structure emphasizes increasing energy supplies to meet expected demands. These needs can only be met through continued investments in large scale power projects both domestically as well as in neighboring countries. Power planning also includes expectations that the regional transmission network will be realized allowing for both exports and imports of electricity with neighboring countries. International concern about climate change is also playing a role in Thailand’s power development plans. By pledging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the energy sector by 30% by 2020, Thailand is planning on increased investments in nuclear power projects, hydropower projects and the promotion of Clean Development Mechanism projects. Meanwhile, renewable energy development, Energy Efficiency and Demand-side management (DSM) are not adequately being promoted by the government. Links Power Planning History of Electricity Reform
21 Power Planning Sub page The centralized government planning process and the National Economic and Social Development Plan in addition to regional development and power development plans are crucial in Thailand’s power sector planning.The National Economic and Social Development Plan such as Southern and Eastern Seaboard Development Projects, which are focused on heavy industries utilize large amounts of energy consumption and require infrastructure development that includes huge power plants. beenMoreover, current ‘Framework of Thailand’s Power Strategies’ have also been devised by the government, Ministry of Energy andstate-owned enterprise Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) to include the following:Maintaining energy stability and security: supplying sufficient energy to meet demand, promoting public participation especially in national power planning process, preparing readiness for gas supplied emergencyRegulating energy businessesStrengthening energy utilities and authoritiesPromoting generation and supply of alternative energyReducing energy use and lower greenhouse gas emissionPower Development Plan (PDP)Thus far, Thailand electricity sector propelled byPDP 2010 ( ) ลิ้งค์ไปที่ PDP 2010,the latest 20 year PDP approved in early2010.

22 Power Planning Sub page (Con’t) Arguments made during PDP 2010:Thailand’s civil society criticized the 2010 PDP approval process due to lack of transparency and genuine public participation. The national plan was approved by National Energy Policy Council during the chaotic political situation that occurred in April in Thailand.It is the first PDP covering a 20 year period (Previous plans last 5 years and 15 years). Therefore, long-term demand forecast and investment planning will be less accurate and err from the reality.Notably, even though Thailand’s PDP noted an aspiration to harmonize its renewable energy component with its Link to 15-year Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP), for , developed by Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency under Ministry of Energy, this is not reflected in the official PDP. According to the AEDP, generation capacity from AEDP is to reach 5,608 MW, however the official PDP only includes plans to increase generation capacity from renewable energy sources to 4,049.5 MWUnenthusiastic promotion on renewable energy such as decreasing adders (money support per unit) for solar power and excuse that limitations on the transmission system to support electricity from any renewable energy sources for the national gridEGAT has tried to preserve major shares in the generation market by determining that EGAT’s proportion in new power plants must be at least 50%Process of PDP development and approval:EGAT draft and propose to Ministry of Energy and Energy Regulatory Commission to reviewApproval process by National Energy Policy Committee (NEPC) comprised of Ministers, representatives from the National Economic and Social Development Board while the Prime Minister serves as Chairman.PDP will be proposed to the Cabinet as a final stepIn addition to PDP and AEDP, the government had just conducted a preliminary study of a 20 year energy-saving plan, which aims to review potential of all sectors in reducing energy demand by 25 % by 2030.LINKSArticles
23 History of Electricity Reform Subpage Thailand’s initial centralized economic and social planning saw electricity projects as basic investments providing Thai citizen’s with basic infrastructure to improve their livelihoods and to to drive economic growth. Mega projects including generation stations, hydropower, coal fired power projects and transmission system were constructed gradually. State Control The government decided that the most efficient model for managing the power sector was to establish its own state owned enterprise. This led in 1968, to the consolidation of regional state owned generating companies into a central national electricity termed the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). The distribution networks, Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) and Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) were respectively set up in 1958 and MEA became responsible for power distribution in Bangkok and neighboring provinces while PEA was responsible for power distribution in the remaining provinces. By the end of the 1960s, the power system was centralized under EGAT and the two distribution companies. Privates allowed to generation In 1992, Independent Private Power Producers (IPPs) were allowed into the system through long term concessions operative power plants in accordance with Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with EGAT. EGAT continued to hold sole control over the transmission system operation. At the same time, the Thai government also launched a Small Power Producers (SPPs) program to promote the use of clean efficient energy or the use of renewable energy sources for domestic use. However, the plan was also criticized for the overwhelming preference for large industrial producers (who received SPP licenses) over smaller power producers including rural cooperatives, municipalities, hospitals. The first step of privatization was completed with the relaxation of power tariffs. At that time the National Energy Policy Office (under the Ministry of Energy today) believed that marketizing the power tariff would lead to lower tariffs over time. However, the marketization of power tariffs led to a rapid increase due to rising oil and gas prices at the same time.
24 History of Electricity Reform Subpage (Con’t) ‘Privatization without Extensive Liberalization’In 2000, the second step of privatization involving the introduction of the power pool model along with the unbundling of the generation, transmission and distribution systems was introduced. These were in preparation for complete market competition in the power market by However, with such attempt, it was However, the attempt at privatization was not a success. Many arguments were raised by parties including academics and consumers that it was too risky to allow for a market mechanism to control prices, regulatory body, etc. Two other options were proposed introduced, EGAT proposed a Third Party Access Model which allows consumers to independently choose suppliers while Academics proposed Single Buyer Model which allows for public ownership of distribution and even transmission.Later, EGAT proposed a different model moving from ‘private sector participation competition to achieve efficiency’ to one that allows for ‘national efficiency and competitiveness and secure regional leadership” and ‘To build strong national champions in the energy sector’. Within this model, EGAT would need remain a large major player in order to compete against multinational energy companies in the region.‘National Champion’ and Enhanced Single Buyer (ESB) in the present modelUnder this proposed model EGAT can be the National Champion and maintain its monopoly position. This modelis different from a single buyer in which private entities have to compete with EGAT in generation but EGAT retains amonopoly on the transmission system and a majority of generation.EGAT had plans to reform itself into a private company, listing itself on the stock market to raise capital and expand inthe region. However, this plan finally failed in 2006.LINKSArticles

87 Very Small Power Producer (VSPP) These Thai policymakers also knew that rice mills had a lot of waste rice husk. Pig farms have a lot of manure. Sugar factories have sugar cane bagasse. Sawmills have wood scraps. Each of these is a renewable energy source that can contribute to the national power mix, but only if generators have a market for their power. Selling to the national grid is a perfect market because it’s there 24 hours a day.8787
88 $VSPP regulations essentially have two components: a set of technical regulations that provide for a safe flow of electricity from these generators to the national grid;and a set of commercial regulations regarding the flows of money to the VSPP generators.88

The commercial regulations focus on how costs are allocated, how tariff amounts are determined, and what happens in the event of disputes.A standardized PPA eliminates lengthy case-by-case negotiations with utilities.89
90 Evolution of Thai VSPP regulations 2002VSPP regulations drafted, approved by CabinetUp to 1 MW export, renewables onlyTariffs set at avoided cost (bulk supply tariff + FT)2006Up to 10 MW export, renewables + cogenerationFeed-in tariff “adder”If > 1 MW then utility only pays for 98% of energy2009Tariff adder increase, more for projects that offset dieselThe Thai regulations were approved in Projects were allowed to come into the program as long as they used reenewable energy and they exported less than 1 MW.The tariffs were essentially set at the cost per kWh that Thailand’s distribution utilities pay for power they buy from EGAT.In 2006 the utilities felt comfortable enough with the initial VSPP projects to allow an increase in project size to 10 MW export and efficient cogeneration was also allowed. The government also recognized that VSPP could play a larger role in meeting the nation’s commitment of 8% renewable energy by the year 2011 (recently raised to 20% by year 2022). The upgrade to the regulations also created a technology-specific feed-in tariff subsidy adder.In 2009 the feed-in tariff was changed to provide additional payments for projects that offset diesel generation, which is still used in Thailand in some remote mountain and island areas.English versions of the Thai regulations are available at this website:for English version of regulations, and model PPA90

92 Korat Waste to Energy – biogas … an early Thai VSPP project Uses waste water from cassava to make methaneProduces gas for all factory heat (30 MW thermal) + 3 MW of electricity3 x 1 MW gas generatorsHere are some of VSPP projects in operation in Thailand. Thailand is the world’s second largest producer of Cassava, much of which is turned into tapioca flower. The process generates waste water that, when digested, makes a lot of methane. The digester is a covered lagoon the size of a couple football fields – here you can see the lagoon’s black plastic cover. Methane provides thermal energy and electricity for the tapioca factory and excess is sold to the grid under the VSPP program.9292

98 Thai VSPP MW applied, received permission, PPA signed, and selling – as of September 2009 Industry has responded strongly to the Thai VSPP program. This chart gives some indication of the pipeline of projects. The columns on the right are MW of VSPP generators that are currently online. There are over 100 projects with a combined capacity of over 725 MW. PPAs have been signed for over 2600 MW. Over 4000 MW have been approved. And over 7200 MW have applied. Clearly not all of the projects that have applied will end up being built, but at the very least it indicates considerable interest by industry.For reference, Thailand’s 2009 peak load was a bit over 22,000 MW. Cambodia’s peak load in 2007 of 262 MW is shown as this blue square..98
