Demands for energy consumption in Cambodia continue to rise as it begins a transition to Lower-Middle-Income status. Fuelling growing energy demands in a sustainable way is a priority for the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC). The UNDP is supporting the RGC in achieving progress towards the sustainable development goals in Cambodia, including providing clean and sustainable energy to all.
The domestic demand for electricity in Cambodia grew at an average rate of over 19% per year from 2003 to 2017 and is projected to continually increase by 15% annually up to 2030. This growth in demand has largely been met by new large-scale hydropower and coal power plants to reach a total capacity of around 2,283 MW. Various stakeholders in Cambodia’s energy sector have highlighted alternative solutions to meet this demand, amongst which include new sources of renewable energy (particularly solar) and energy efficiency. These proposed solutions are in line with RGCs Rectangular Strategy-Phase IV, as well as the National Strategic Plan on Green Growth.
In terms of energy access, significant progress towards its goal of connecting 100% of villages and 90% of households to the national grid by 2030 has been achieved. Household rates of electricity access grew from 32.5% in 2010 to 71.5% as of 2017. However, there remains today many challenges to electrify the remaining households, many of which are far off-grid and require alternative solutions.
Increasing the application of sustainable energy sources, increasing energy access and implementing energy efficiency measures can have a positive impact on the competitiveness of Cambodian companies, Cambodia’s economic growth, as well as poverty reduction. As part of UNDP’s support to the Royal Government of Cambodia, UNDP is seeking up to two International Senior Specialists on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy to support project identification, programming and implementation. The consultants will support the core programme team of UNDP Cambodia.

A separate ToR will be developed for the specific services needed within the scope of the LTA.
