ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN BUILDINGS - Accelerating Low-carbon Development in Cambodia
Oct 20, 2020
Between 2019 and 2040, global primary energy consumption is expected to rise by 25 percent until 2040. Global electricity demand will grow at 2.1 percent per year, twice the rate of primary energy demand. Electricity demand growth will be particularly strong in developing economies like Cambodia. According to the International Energy Agency, a sharp pick-up in efficiency improvements is the most critical element that can bring the world towards the Sustainable Development Scenario.
The building sector is the most significant final energy consumer in Cambodia, with an estimated share of about 52 percent equivalent to 3.5 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe). Residential and commercial buildings consume almost 80 percent of the total final electricity. According to a national forecast, buildings’ energy consumption will more than double until 2040.
