Power sector development policy was formulated in 1994, while energy strategic plan 1999-2016 was drafted and it was revised for 2004-2020. There is considerable potential of Cambodia's energy resources such as coal, hydropower, renewable energy, petroleum and natural gas. The Cambodian's government aims to achieve 70% of renewable energy by the year 2030 with grid quality. This include rural electrification scheme that intends to ensure electric accessibility in remotes areas and promote local resource such as solar, wind, hydro, biogas, biomass or geothermal. The main barriers of electrification and renewable energy are raised in this presentation.
