Even though electricity consumption in Myanmar has doubled during the last 10 year, in 2011, total electricity consumption was 6,312 gigawatt-hour. With a population of about 60 million, Myanmar's per capita electricity consumption was only 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) per year, which was the lowest among ASEAN 10 countries. The low national average per capita electricity consumption is due to the low electrification rate, low industrial development and lack of investment.
The country's average electrification (defined as the number of electrified household connected to the grid over the total number of household) grew from about 16% in 2006 to 26% in 2011. Yangon City has the highest electrification ratio (67%), followed by Nay Pyi Taw (54%), Kayar (37%) and Mandalay (31%). The remaining rural areas are still poorly electrified averaging at about 16%.
