Cambodia Energy Statistics 2000–2019
The Cambodia Energy Statistics 2019–2020 provides nationally available energy data before 2010 on coal, electricity, and biomass. The longer historical energy data set provides Cambodia with a good dataset for any energy planning analysis as it is used to predict the future behaviour of energy consumption. Cambodia’s total primary energy supply (TPES) increased by an annual average rate of 5.8% from 2000–2010 and by 8.0% from 2010–2019, showing the same trend as total final energy consumption (TFEC). Due to a significant rise in electricity demand, Cambodia rapidly increased hydropower and coal power generation from 2010 to 2019. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) – used for cooking in the residential and commercial sectors and the road transport sector, such as in three-wheel tuk-tuks – also had a higher growth rate from 2000–2019 compared with 2000–2010. But traditional biomass has been phased out from the Cambodian market. As a result, TPES without biomass increased by an average 11.1% per year from 2000 to 2019, which is much higher than the economic growth rate. Thus, Cambodia urges the promotion of energy efficiency and conservation, as set out in the publication Energy Efficiency and Conservation Master Plan for Cambodia, prepared with ERIA’s support.
