Harnessing the Solar Energy Potential in Cambodia

Nov 5, 2019

Since 2010, Cambodia’s GDP has grown at an average of 7% each year, but its demand for electricity has grown even faster averaging around 20% per year. To power this growth, Cambodia has installed many new sources of electricity generation. The country had 584 MW of installed grid capacity in 2012, but by the end of 2018 it had about five times that with 2,560 MW. As trends of rapid economic and electricity growth are projected to continue far into the next decade, Cambodia must find new sources of electricity generation that are abundant, secure, affordable and environmentally sustainable.
