Education programs must therefore be developed and implemented into school curricula. Industrial professional associations (GMAC, Federation of Rice Miller Association, Rubber producers, Food Industry Association, Phnom Penh SMI Association, Brewery Association of Cambodia), Surveys in industry on the number of owners and managers of factories informed about EE&C and interested in implementing energy efficiency measures at their premises, number of awareness raising actions conducted per year, Providefinancialincentives to interested companies to implement energy efficiency strategies and measures. International donors funding capacity building. This has a severe impact on public health and on the regional and global climate. The medium term strategy for the energy sector in the NSDP 2006-2010 does not mention any strategy on energy efficiency except concerning energy supply and low cost considerations12. NSDP 2009-2013 enshrines the commitment of the Royal Government of Cambodia to mitigate adverse effects of energy consumption on environment and society by the implementation of energy projects while safeguarding economic efficiency of each project. The developer is encouraged to use energy efficiency standards from his home country if they are equivalent or better than those being developed in Cambodia. The document concludes with the Energy Efficiency Action Plans for each sector that details the proposed activities in terms of time frame, budget requirements, and stakeholders to be involved and potential sources of financing. The Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction (MOLMUP+C) completes the draft of a general building code. Agreed cooperation between MIME and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF). In 2030, 95% of villages of the whole country will be connected to the national grid while another 5% of the villages will be connected to single supply systems with a quality of supply similar to the national grid. 2 This figure is excluding power trading over the national borders. See savings listed above for EE building codes. The national energy policy as formulated in October 1994 by the RGC assists to provide reliable, affordable energy services to all end users including the various economic sectors and social groups of the country in the most sustainable manner. ECCJ and ACE carried out ten audits).

Although some guideline standards apply to licensed REEs, they are not properly enforced. NSDP 2006-2010 envisages a long term energy security for the country and recommends the development of a 15-Year Cambodia Energy Strategy 2006-202011. The above calculated Saving Potentials form the basis of the National Energy Efficiency Policy objective: To achieve these main objectives, MIME has defined the goals of energy development in the Kingdom as follows: 1- From the year of 2015, the national grid has sufficient capacity to support all kinds of demands of consumers already connected to the national grid and in 2018 the national grid will provide a 25% reserve capacity for the system. Students have the necessary background to be aware of and understand energy efficiency issues when in professional practice. With the recent solar power boom, Cambodia has set solid fundamentals to meet growing energy demand using clean energy systems.

Energy Efficiency Action Plan for the Industry.. 34, 3.5. In close collaboration with MIME, these priority areas were selected according to their share on the overall energy consumption and to their importance for the socio-economic development of the country.

Encouraging the efficient use of energy with minimal impact on the environment. In the last decade, the annual electricity demand growth rate in Cambodia was 16.3%, which means that our countrys electricity consumption multiplied by 4.5 during the period of 2002 to 2011. This corresponds to an overallreduction of the CO2emissionsin 2035 by 23% or 3 million tons of CO2. To improve energy efficiency of rural electricity supply, the two most urgent priorities are introducing and enforcing standards on electricity generation and distribution and training of REEs in operating their systems more effectively. This EEIRC should comprise: (a) A physical desk at MIME accessible by phone or in person and (b) A web portal via internet offering information and services about EE products, regulations, standards, reports and governmental publications. Number of ESCOs registered per year, number of audits and implementation of energy saving measures achieved per year by this pool of ESCOs, quantity in toe and money of energy saved per year, Technicaltrainingfor engineers and technicians in the field of energy efficiency, performing energy audits, establishing EMS and implementing energy saving measures in the industry. The EE building code applies to all building types with air-conditioned floor area greater than 2,000 m2, and connected to the public utility grid. Increaseconsumerawareness of rural electrification options and energy efficiency. Off-grid users rely e.g.

Theconcept of Energy Efficiencydoes not mean to save energy by reducing the overall comfort and well-being of the end user, but it aims at providing the same (or even better) energy services using less energy inputs. 28 Most recent data included in the energy balance currently published by the IEA for Cambodia. Vision Statement 5, 1.2.1. A pool of trained energy managers with practical experience is established, Qualified trainers and appropriate training facilities are available, Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training, Government funding, International Energy Agencies, Surveys from training institutes on the number of trained energy managers per year, Energyefficiency inpublicbuildings is improved, Existingpublic buildings are held to a high energy efficiency performance standard. And in particular, amongst the countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the regions collective political and economic group. Comin Khmer etc. Local renewable energy organizations must be operational. Support,especially to small and medium industrial enterprises, for auditing of their facilities and implementation of energy efficient solutions, An increasing number of industrial enterprises and in particular of SMEs is performing energy audits in their premises and implementing saving measures to reduce their energy demand, Motivation of the entrepreneurs to engage in energy efficiency. Random control by MIME staff or contracted energy auditors in selected factories using criterions such as energy bills, biomass consumption or meters in order to compare the data given by the factories with some actual information taken from the field. The limited choice of target groups is due to the consideration that this activity is implementing new approaches in managing and protecting the forest resources. Based on 2012 fuel prices of 560 US$/ton of fuel oil and 750 US$/ton of diesel (see IEA: End-use petroleum product prices and average crude oil import costs, March 2013), a very first estimate results in annual savings of about 319 Million US$ in 2035. These unlicensed REEs represent the greatest potential for efficiency savings in rural electrification and can be tackled through better training, stricter standards, and improved technology (including renewable energy). This requires institutional capacity building and communication, training of REE staff and developing a better understanding of the benefits of electricity and its possible uses by the households. EnergyEfficiencyAction Plan(how to implement the strategies proposed). A stock of energy efficient buildings will be established in Cambodia over time. The energy efficiency of large projects is improved. This requirement is also valid for all other activities in this sector. Currently, only 6 % of Cambodias rural population has access to electricity, mostly from village grids which are often powered by inefficient diesel generators.

The focal points should be composed of representatives of the involved and affected stakeholder groups from the public, and the private sector.

4- In 2020, at least 50% of households in Cambodia will be grid-connected with the same quality of supply as those connected to the national grid and 70% of households will follow up to 2030. electrical Publicity campaigns must be broadcasted by radio and TV appliances in a and be published in newspapers to inform the great public moreefficient about the concept of energy efficiency and the saving, way potentials that can be realized by the appropriate utilisation of electrical appliances, avoiding any wasteful consumption, 2.5.3. energyconservationThe activities to be implemented are awareness raising measuresand are campaigns about EE&C, providing financial incentives for ready to implement the implementation of energy efficient solutions and energysaving support, especially to SME industrial companies, for solutions auditing of their facilities and implementation of energy, 2.5.2. Furthermore, I would like to extend my profound thanks to Dr. P.K. ---- Energy efficiency in public buildings is improved; (a) A green standard is applied to all new public buildings; (i) A green standard is chosen for government buildings because it is in governments power to subscribe to a higher standard than energy efficiency codes and lead the way for Cambodia. Introduce into the curriculum knowledge of energy efficiency in buildings as a core competency for architecture students. Regular review of the energy efficiency standards and their application in industrial enterprises by certified auditors. By means of reducing the specific energy consumption of industrial production processes, the energy costs in industry can be reduced by at least 20% (garment industry) up to 70% (brick production), depending on changes in behaviour and on the replacement of inefficient equipment. 1.1.1. Green building standards address not only energy consumption, but also recycling (e.g. Hence the energy costs can be reduced by up to 80%. Two decades ago, just 17% of its population hadaccess to the electricity gridtoday, it is 76%. Increasethe competitivenessof the Cambodian economy, Decrease the dependency on imported fuels and. A standard could be developed specifically for Cambodia over time. Annual energy consumption to be recorded regularly to government services. With the NCCC, the government of Cambodia is aiming at reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions, the major threat for climate change, by implementing a number of projects in the fields of energy efficiency and renewable energies. Community based sustainable forest management is being implemented effectively within a context of province, distinct and commune level planning and delivering concrete benefits to local communities. for coal) and GHG emissions, Use for financing development of EE building code or a green standard, The current low price of carbon and small decentralised nature of projects mean scope for carbon credits is limited. The compliance with EE standards is made a prerequisite for tax reliefs applicable to large developments and luxury hotels in Cambodia. Strategic Analysis and Methodology.. 14, 2.4.2. Cambodia is bound to open up abundant opportunities for the investors already on board. It is recommended to launch a study on its own on this sector. As of 2021, Cambodia sawover 51% of the countrys domestic energyproduction come from renewable sources. Scope of Planning. 25, 3.3. Inform the public about the labels put in place by means of leaflets and publicity campaigns to be elaborated by local media experts. Products which are not corresponding to the minimum efficiency standards are excluded from the market. Publiclecturesby architects with expertise in energy efficient buildings. First, thegovernment aimsto open up more opportunities for collaboration with private sector to mobilise greater investment and financing. Certified testing facilities to measure electricity consumption of products are available and can be utilized. Generation of employment by private sector development. The ISC should closely cooperate with DET, MIME in establishing minimum standards for electrical appliances and with the Ministry of Commerce in regulating the import and assembling of these devices.

Such a web-portal should integrate social media to facilitate rapid communication.

While in the urban areas 25% of the households are using charcoal today, the use of charcoal in rural areas is not yet significant. In their own ways, all these factors are paving the way for renewables, particularly solar power, to boom in the next decade. 4 Data source: International Energy Statistics 2012published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration: 5 Compare: Poch, K. and S. Tuy (2012), Cambodias Electricity Sector in the Context of Regional Electricity Market Integration in Wu, Y., X. Shi, and F. Kimura (eds. To reach the overall energy efficiency objective, MIMEs Alternative Policy Scenario was adjusted by the results of assumed energy efficiency improvements in the five sectors identified aspriorityareasfor the national energy efficiency policy, strategy and action plan. Energy Efficiency Action Plan for End User Products. 45, 3.6. Create financial incentives to facilitate the performance of audits and the implementation of EE measures, depending on the needs of the beneficiaries: SMEs may need more support than the bigger industrial companies, especially on the energy audit side.

Cooperation will continue to be important during updates of the code to find best practices. From 1999 until 2011, the real GDP per capita has more than tripled and the Economic Institute of Cambodia expects that the economic growth trend will continue with the real GDP growing by 6.2% in 2012. REE generation and distribution networks offer the greatest potentialfor efficiency improvements by reducing losses (up to 80% electricity savings). biomass and buildings) and their efficient utilisation, Public lectures by architects designing projects demonstrating EE principals, Awareness campaigns for rural HHs covering energy efficiency, the productive use of energy and the range of services to be expected from local REEs, Publicity campaigns to promote improved cook stoves and other efficient biomass burning devices, The Institute of Standards of Cambodia develops standards for industrial equipment both imported and built locally on their energy performance, using international standards and standards developed in ASEAN, The energy labelling system for energy consuming household appliances as part of the national EE policy and strategy and its potential impact on EE is a good example for the contribution of individual households to the reduction of the overall energy demand of the country, Rating building products such as windows (for solar heat gain coefficient), Appliances are not a significant source of inefficiency in rural areas, Rating the improved cook stoves by considering the efficiency, cleanliness of the combustion, pollution level and safety based on field and laboratory tests that refer to an international standard protocol with necessary adoption to local contexts (climate, culture, cooking habit, etc), Laws and regulations must be formulated, promulgated and enforced, Suitable credit/financing tools to facilitate energy efficiency investments such as co- generation must be developed, The import of energy efficient devices must be encouraged by tax-reliefs, Establish carbon credit fund and/or EE&C Fund to finance EE projects and interventions, Conferences with international donor agencies must be organized to get access to financing schemes. Promotion ofsustainable forest management for biomass fuel supply, Diversion of biomass extraction from natural forest to properly managed wood lots as sustainable sources of energy, Communities and FAC and MIME are familiar with sustainable wood biomass energy supply from CF (Community Forestry), Regional Community Forestry Training Centre (RECOFTC). Increasing awareness in the architecture community and the public for green and energy efficient architecture. Relevant stakeholders include EAC, REF, and EdC. See for example the NAAB 2009 Conditions for Accreditation, page 23, item B.3. - Mr. Chou Mengchan, Director of Inter-sector Division. Promotion of improved and efficient cookstoves for urban households. The sustainable economic development must take into consideration the protection of the natural environment and the sustainable management of the natural resources of the country. Improve renewableenergysystem installation capacity and supply chain. From 2004 to 2007, the economy of Cambodia grew by more than 10% per year, contracted slightly in 2009 as a result of the global economic slowdown but climbed back up to 6% in 2010 and 6.9% in 2011, driven by tourism and renewed exports. Cooperation with the Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC), Foreign trade organizations, hotel associations, Foreign developers of large building projects, At least 20% energy savings in new buildings. There is relatively little or no cost to improve the design of new buildings, to make them inherently more energy efficient, before they are built. By local authorities reporting to MIME for collation, 3.8. This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged. Once the full plan of actions will be realized, the annual savings will presumably increase up to about 319 million US$ per year in 2035 (see calculation in the annex). ImplementingAgency:Stakeholdersinvolved: Promotion ofbiomass use for decentralized production of energy (thermal or electrical) through gasification or bio digestion(seealso chapter 3.5), Dependency on imported fossil fuels to run the industry and overall energy costs are reduced, MIME, MAFF, enterprises involved in biomass gasifier construction/import, Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF), NGOs. These buildings are well documented in terms of energy use and cost, and tours are available. ---- Energy efficiency is existing buildings is improved; (a) An Energy Manager Certification program is established; (i) Energy efficiency of existing buildings can be improved in the most cost effective manner by careful attention to the operation of the building. If the same services can be provided and products be produced with less energy, this will boost the social and economic development and contribute to the protection of the natural environment of Cambodia by decreasing GHG emissions. Overall Policy Goal for Energy Efficiency.. 6, 1.4. However, they must be encouraged to improve the efficiency of power generation and distribution by appropriate incentives in order to be able to provide adequate energy services at acceptable costs. Energy Efficiency Action Plan for Biomass, The National forest resources are protected by the sustainable and efficient use of biomass, Promotion ofimproved and efficient cookstoves for rural households, Business support to cook stove producers and cook stove distributors, Improved and efficient cookstoves are widely accepted by rural households. The first year will function as a pilot phase with a particular emphasis to establish an appropriate, well-functioning and effective working and cooperation framework for the working groups. New public buildings become an example to lead the way to more energy efficient buildings in general in Cambodia and encourage development beyond mere energy efficiency to sustainable, green building development.

100,000 USD as spark fund to set-up new production facilities. Anadditional 495 megawatts (MW) of electricity generationfrom seven solar power plants will be online by 2023. The households in urban areas were almost 100% electrified, but only 14% of the rural households have access to grid electricity and about 50% have access to alternative off-grid electricity sources. Regular reporting on EE measures applied in large developments and luxury hotels by MIME. According to the sectorial analysis of the energy consumption in Cambodia, it can be assumed that more than half of these savings (about 680 ktoe) will be biomass based, about 330 ktoe are electricity savings generated from Heavy Fuel Oil, and 180 ktoe are Diesel savings. As such it can server in the future for a good lessons learned case amongst the ASEAN countries. The market share of energy efficient appliances is increasing. International experience shows that 20% or more energy savings can be achieved in buildings by using energy efficient building materials, energy efficient equipment, and passive design principles. Figure3:National Energy Efficiency Strategy of the Kingdom of Cambodia. Improve energy data collection and processing in the industry. In the following the specific action plans per strategic objective for all 5 sectors are elaborated. Additionally, many international brands with operations in the country like Adidas, Puma, H&M and Nike alsopressured the governmentto limit fossil fuel use and extend clean energy efforts.
