Switching on: Cambodia’s path to sustainable energy security

September 05, 2018

This report investigates the potential for Cambodia to diversify its power supply technology mix, for greater energy security and sustainability benefits, given changing technology cost relativities. To date almost all Cambodian investment in the power sector has focused on largescale hydropower and coal-fired generation. The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) has indicated investing in sustainable energy is a priority. Recent technology cost developments mean the RGC can pursue energy security, access, reliability and affordability goals, at least in part, through increased investment in (non-large hydropower) renewable energy.
