Phnom Penh, 18 November – The beginning of November marked the second Clean Energy Week in Cambodia, with more than 40 events happening across the country. Over 2,500 people participated to showcase their ideas and raise awareness about the need of turning to the use of clean and sustainable energy.

The week started at the Australian Embassy, where senior ministry representatives, development partners, major energy developers, business leaders, companies and organisations met to discuss the future of clean energy.

Participants of Clean Energy Week had a chance to join site visits, factory tours and open days during the course of the week, allowing them to see projects, network and look behind the scenes.

During the week, visitors interested in clean energy could enjoy tours to the ISPP 1MW rooftop solar system and Khmer Green Charcoal factory or go to Kampong Speu and see ATEC Biogas farmers using clean cooking gas. Three other companies showcased their batteries, smart and solar technologies.

To wrap up the event, 20 companies showcased their clean energy technologies ranging from solar to biogas at Clean Energy Expo.

Guests could also enjoy a clean charcoal BBQ in collaboration with ElevenOneKitchen.
