Cambodia jumps 12 spots in global energy sustainability survey

Published onOctober 9, 2019

Cambodia’s ranking in the latest global energy sustainability survey has improved dramatically, indicating that the Kingdom’s efforts to solve its energy woes and providing an adequate power supply are making headway. This also means that Cambodia, which suffered a crippling power problem a few months ago, has recovered well from that crisis. After many of its hydropower dams dried up because of a lingering drought, Cambodia was forced to ration power in many parts of the country early this year. The newly-released 2019 Energy Trilemma Index (ETI) ranked Cambodia 105 out of 128 countries, representing a 12-spot jump from last year. The 2018 ETI placed Cambodia in the 117 spot out of 125 countries included in the survey.
