What Have We Learned from EPGE’s 1,060 MW Solar Tender?September 30, 2020
Proposals have been evaluated, preliminary winners have been selected. The focus on Myanmar’s largest ever competitive tender for renewable energy, launched in June 2020, is now shifting to whether the winning bidders can indeed get their projects implemented, and do so within the strict time limits set out in the tender.
Highlights of this note
- Was the time to prepare a bid indeed too short?
- Are Chinese companies getting an unfair advantage by the Government?
- What about the tariff?
- And now? Winning a tender is one thing. But will the projects be built? And on schedule?
- Can we expect more tenders like this? Will there still be directly awarded projects?
