Total Energy consumption

Per capita energy consumption was 0.48 toe in 2016, including about 379 kWh of electricity.

Total consumption has been increasing rapidly since 2008, at around 10.4%/year and reached 7.6 Mtoe in 2016. Biomass still dominates the energy mix (57% in 2016), although its contribution has been declining due to the increased use of coal and hydro. Oil ranks second in the energy mix, but its ...

The country does not produce crude oil. After being interrupted for many years, several companies undertook exploration activities at the beginning of the nineties, in four offshore areas.

The country is divided into six offshore blocks and nineteen onshore blocks. Cambodia and Thailand share a maritime area called OCA (Overlapping Claims Area) of 27 000 km², which holds a large ...

Renewable in % electricity production

There is no specific renewable energy (RE) target or dedicated policy, but the government refers to the National Strategic Plan on Green Growth 2013-2030 and the National Climate Change Strategic Plan 2014-2023 to guide its implementation of RE technologies. Under the Rural Electrification Master Plan adopted in 2006, the Government relies on renewable and distributed energy to increase ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions are low due to the limited economic development. In 2016, energy related CO2 emissions were 9.3 MtCO2. They increased strongly over 2014-2016 with the commissioning of two new coal power plants.

In its First NDC submission, Cambodia aims to reduce its GHG emissions by 27% by 2030 compared to a baseline scenario, amounting to total savings of 3 100 ktCO2eq. More than ...
