For the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, if there is an absence of federal system where the government is elected by the people and all ethnic people living within the nation have the right to self-determination for their respective regions, energy and resources existing inside the country will not be beneficial for its own people. Likewise, civilian services such as the distribution of electricity and fuel projects are believed to be ineffective. Therefore, the Ministry of Electricity and Energy of the National Unity Government will endeavour through various ways to promote the establishment of the Federal Democratic Union.

Foreword by the Ministers

Unless there is a government by the people and for the people, and whereas all ethnic brothers and sisters within the country have their own rights to self-determination, energy resources will not benefit the people but rather contribute negative impacts for Myanmar. It also certain that services for the civilians such as the distribution of electricity and fuel to all urban and rural areas cannot be maintained in a better off condition. Therefore, it is necessary for us to hasten our endeavour of establishing a Federal Democratic Union through all possible means.
Myanmar, despite the possession of geopolitical advantages given by nature, people of Myanmar are facing energy scarcity due to the poor administration in decades. Not only States within the country encountered inequality in the distribution and use of energy driven by the unequal distribution of resources throughout generations, but also as a consequence, results related to the underdevelopment of the people in Myanmar can be clearly seen in the reports issued by the World Bank and UN agencies. At the same time, Climate Change is a disaster which would harm the entire international community, whereas Myanmar is also included among. Nowadays, there are only slightly more than 50 percent of households which have access to electric power. So, energy acquisition still constitutes a crucial challenge for Myanmar. Nevertheless, most states around the world have been transitioning their energy sector into a clean energy system as a requirement. Meanwhile, households within Myanmar have been facing both energy scarcity and unequal distribution of resources at the same time. Therefore, it is preliminary to consider and resolve these issues when adopting sufficient energy policies for Myanmar in the near future. In this case, it is important to include environmental justice and social justice frameworks when establishing clean and renewable energy systems. Moreover, preparations for policies such as sustainable mineral policy, energy efficiency policy and energy transition policy would also be necessary when transitioning towards the World Energy System. However, it is impossible to perform energy related matters by one single department, and shall simultaneously consider necessary norms for transportation and communication, infrastructure and residential infrastructures. Likewise, it is necessary to build a firm infrastructure for administration that would meet the standards of a federal system. Only by doing so, the country would be able to implement a decentralized energy system, create energy markets which meet the local needs, and deter the holding of state power by making use of the energy sector. In this regard, the current Spring Revolution is a revolution which aims at not only transforming the political system, but also can be presumed as an opportunity to reform the energy system related problems which the country has been encountering now.
