Cambodia’s Profile in Power Sector The First Mekong Energy and Ecology Training May 11-30, 2009, Thailand TONN KUNTHEL, BY HOUR & PHALLUY
General Information Cambodia is situated in the Lower Mekong region, with an area of 181,035 square Kilometers 84% of population in rural areas lacking of electricity and 16.41% of total households have access to electricity National strategy by 2020, all villages will be able to access electricity Potential of hydropower is high, more than 10,000MW (Source: EAC 2008)
Generation of Electricity More than 95% of electric power generation is from diesel power plant. 13 fuel power plants generate electricity to provinces (Sihanouk, Siem Reap, Takeo, Kampot, BMC, PreyVeng, Stung Treng, Pursat, Kg. Cham, R.Kiri, Kg. Chhnang) Electric power import from Thailand to BMC, Siem Reap, BTB) Electric power import from Vietnam to Kg. Cham, Svay Reang, Kampot, Kandal, Kratie)
GDP GROWTH Cambodia economic growth was only about 5.2 percent in 2008, which was down from a growth rate of 10.2 percent in 2007. The global crisis impacts on Cambodia during the last quarter of 2008, especially on the garment industry, tourism and construction.
Electricity Cost In Phnom Penh, electricity can cost up to $0.18 per KWh, Provincial centers electricity costs average around $0.30 per KWh, In remote locations that are served by small- scale IPPs, prices can be far higher – example in some districts outside Battambang town the cost is reportedly $0.75 to $1.25 per KWh.
