    Solar energy &

    net-metering in Cambodia

  • PicoSol Cambodia

    • Mission: to support the introduction and

    implementation of solar energy in Cambodia

    • Why is this necessary?

    – Lack of awareness and knowledge

    – Issues with accessibility

    – Issues with affordability

    – No supportive regulatory framework

  • Our services

  • Energy situation Cambodia

    • Electrification rate: – < 45% (Lao PDR 70%; Vietnam 95%; Thailand 99%)

    • Electricity price: – ranging widely from $0.15/kWh to up to $1/kWh.

    Industries are charged $0.18-19 kWh

    • Power supply and demand: – ~ 60% electricity imported from Vietnam and Thailand

    – annual growth of power consumption: ~ 9%

    • Supply challenges, especially during hot season

    BUT

    • Excellent solar conditions

  • Two kinds of solar systems

    1. Stand alone

    2. Grid connected

  • Net-metering/feed-in tariff (1)

    • Both methods entail that the utility company

    compensates the owner of the solar system for the

    energy fed back into the grid.

  • Net-metering/feed-in tariff (2)

    • Feed-in tariff works with two meters:

    – one measures consumption,

    – the other measures generation.

    • Net-metering has only one meter:

    – this meter runs “backwards” when a homeowner’s solar

    panels produce more electricity than the property is using

    and the excess energy is send back to the grid.

  • Feeding energy back into the grid

    in Cambodia not compensated for by feed-in tariffs or

    net-metering

    • Both methods are designed to accelerate

    investments in renewable energy technologies by

    allowing energy producers (e.g. homeowners) to be

    compensated for the energy fed back into the grid.

    • Does this impede the development of solar in

    Cambodia? What is needed from govt. to support

    the sector?

  • Panel participants

    • H.E. Mr. Victor Jona DG, Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME)

    • Mr. Rogier van Mansvelt CTO, Simplon Cambodia Ltd
