Cambodia’s 2023-2040 Power Development Plan is Published: What Are the Key Things to Know?


Cambodia’s newest Power Development Plan (PDP), which has just been released, lays out the strategy for generation, transmission and distribution in the next decades, until 2040. VDB Loi Cambodia’s legal experts discuss it for you and set out the key things you need to know, whether you are a developer, a lender or an EPC provider. Where are the planned new generation projects in solar and hydro, and to which new substations will they connect? Where are the key new 200kv and 500kv transmission lines planned? What is the role they plan for battery energy storage? A not to be missed exploration and discussion of the Government’s electricity strategy for the next decades.


  • Which future solar projects have been pre-approved in the PDP?
  • Grid strengthening investment: how much and where?
  • Key observations from the PDP’s generation mix
  • Where will the additional 4GW in hydropower be located?
  • How is the future of Cambodia’s power imports?
  • Where are the new substations located?
