Contract duration: 2014-2017         

Description of contract scope:

The SWITCH Asia call for proposals seeks to contribute to economic prosperity and poverty reduction in Asia through sustained growth with reduced environmental impact by industries and customers. MEET-BIS Cambodia project was then awarded.

Learning from the experiences of the MEET-BIS Vietnam project, the MEET-BIS Cambodia project will have a strong component on providing access to investment capital to SMEs through local financial institutions.

The overall objective of the action is to promote economic prosperity and poverty reduction in Cambodia with reduced adverse environmental impact of energy production and consumption by SMEs in selected sectors, in line with international environmental agreements.

The Specific objective is to improve the competitiveness of SMEs in selected sectors in Cambodia through commercially viable and scalable business innovation packages enabling SMEs to effectively invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy use in their primary production processes.

CCDE worked as sub-contractor of RWC (the project local partner) providing 5 core team staff above to work full time for the project over the project duration. They will be carrying out the daily activities of the project under day-to-day supervision of Project manager from ETC as project lead partner.

Project:  DEMT: Distributed Energy operational Management Tools - Training of rural operators


Contract duration:   2005-2006


Description of contract scope:

                 In Laos and Cambodia, which are both engaging in ambitious electrification programmes, with large distributed components (mini grid and PV) under their respective Ministries of Energy there is a great need to provide local system managers with practical tools. Just as important, the Ministries need to be in a position to manage the performance of the private enterprises who are given a license. In Cambodia, where the grid is yet to be interconnected, the utility, EDC, further needs an improved billing and customer management system for its Provincial capitals. Improving efficiency and reducing losses is key to sustainable implementation of rural electrification objectives and increased access to services harnessing small scale local energy resources. 

   The services provided by CCDE were:

               • To provide MIH of Laos and MIME of Laos, who are in charge of distributed renewable energy services for rural areas, with a mini grid and PV systems management software, operational in the contexts of Laos and Cambodia.

               • To assist the partners above in formulating the performance indicators they would like to monitor through the above software tool;

               ·   To develop the adapted software in close collaboration between the ASEAN and European partners, to ensure full transfer of knowhow and that IT staff are capable of further developing and adapting the instrument

               ·   To test the instruments in the field in actual areas where mini grids, PV systems are being operated

               ·   To develop the related training manuals in Khmer and Lao,

               ·   To train trainers as well as operators 

               ·   To ensure that the Ministries can consolidate data and manage the decentralised private sector based programmes’ performance efficiently.
