Summary:

The solar roadmap for Cambodia presents perspectives to create access to energy to 200,000 rural families in 2020 with solar powered solutions. The ongoing international trend in cost price reduction of solar panels will contribute to the feasibility of this ambitious aim. However, this large amount is only possible if donor organizations and the government will take concerted actions on the short term. It requires the creation of a solar fund of 20 Million US$, enabling distributors and end-users to overcome the investment barrier of the relatively high initial system costs. Also companies, in co-operation with financing institutions need to expand their activities in the provinces to establish distribution points with one-stop shops of both providing standardized technical solutions and financing opportunities for the families.
