Electricity in Cambodia: Quality and Price Issues

Cambodia's electricity grid is ageing and cannot meet the country's rapidly growing energy demands. As a result, the country's electricity prices are some of the highest in the region, and its infrastructure suffers from quality issues. Tackling these challenges is a core component of the country's long-term energy security.

Solar Energy in Cambodia: Overcoming Energy System Challenges

Cambodia has one of the highest solar energy potentials in the region. The country plans to significantly scale capacity in the coming decades to strengthen the energy grid and reach its net-zero emissions goals.

Renewable Energy in Cambodia: Continued Growth

Cambodia sources over 50% of its energy from renewable sources and is planning further expansion in the next two decades. This growth will primarily rely on hydropower's slow growth and solar's rapid expansion. Cambodia must fill its existing financial gap to reach its renewable energy goals.

Climate Change in Cambodia: A Growing Concern

Cambodia is highly vulnerable to climate change, and its low economic development will hinder its adaptation and mitigation efforts. Global support is crucial for the country to meet its greenhouse gas emission and adaptation targets.
