IIEC has recently been engaged by Rural Electrification Fund (REF) of Cambodia, to promote off-grid and mini-grid renewable energy for rural electrification throughout the country. The project aims at enhancing awareness and knowledge of Rural Electricity Enterprises (REEs), small-scale utilities with generating capacity from 20kW to 2MW, on potential and utilization of renewable energy resources in Cambodia. The project also targets at promoting Solar Home Systems (SHS) to individual households and other potential end-users. These promotional efforts will serve as one of the key strategies and actions for the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) to achieve at least 70% of all households with access to grid quality electricity by the year 2030.


REF currently provides grant assistance to REEs for new connections and development of renewable energy technology power plants, and Solar Firms for supplying SHS for households in rural areas. More information of the REF Grant Program is available at REF website (www.ref.gov.kh). IIEC is now conducting market assessments and surveys on potential renewable energy resources and technologies as well as awareness and knowledge of target audiences on renewable energy and REF Grants. IIEC aims to complete the assessment in the third quarter of 2008 and begin the promotional campaign in the last quarter of 2008.
