Exploiting Clean Power for A Sustainable Future in Cambodia

With Cambodia's annual electricity demand currently exceeding 15 TWh and continuing to rise, driven by robust population and economic growth, the country stands poised to leverage renewable energies for power generation. In 2022, renewable energies accounted for over half of the energy mix, with a total installed domestic power generation capacity of 3,464.67 MW. The primary contributor is hydropower, following by solar energy.

As Cambodia looks ahead, it also plans to explore the development of biomass as a renewable energy source. While making strides in renewable energy adoption, Cambodia continues to utilize non-renewable sources such as coal and fuel oil, as well as imports.
