Background

With approximately 5.8 hours of peak sunlight a day, Cambodia possesses one of the best solar resources in the world. Together with high electricity rates, unreliable sources of power and skyrocketing demand for electricity, Cambodia is a very attractive market for investors in the energy sector. The successful completion last year of the country’s first utility-scale solar power project in Bavey City in Svay Rieng Province, which was backed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), provides further investment impetus.
