Mainstreaming Energy Efficiency through Business Innovation Support Cambodia

SMEs make up a crucial part of the Cambodian economy and form a crucial segment to enhance sustainable production in the country. Many SMEs in Cambodia work with outdated and inefficient technology. With energy prices being high, their inefficiency implies high production cost to the business, as well as high cost to the environment. Local available technologies are often not adopted due to several factors, amongst others: the lack of institutional capacity of existing installation-companies to adequately translate these technical solutions into business-smart, cost-saving products for SMEs; limited understanding of (the benefits of) these technologies; and limited access to external financing for SMEs.

The overall objective is to promote economic prosperity and poverty reduction in Cambodia with reduced adverse environmental impact of SMEs in selected sectors.

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 clean technologies for their business.
