Even readers who know little about Myanmar – sometimes still known as Burma, but not in this report – will find a lot of interesting material in this analysis from the World Economic Forum. It details how a nation develops a new energy policy to provide power for a growing domestic economy, brings electricity to a rural majority that lacks it, and establishes sustainable, long-range practices.
