What are the challenges that rural Cambodians are facing in gaining access to clean and affordable energy? What role can solar energy play in addressing these challenges?

A case study about our Solar Microfinance Programme in Cambodia addresses these subjects and was recently featured by the Alliance for Rural Electrification. The study offers an insight into the project components, costs and outcomes up to September 2016.

  • Quality assurance
  • Awareness raising
  • MFI solar customer loans
  • Financial incentives for solar suppliers
  • Staff training and business consulting

Check out the case study to learn more these topics.

The Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) represents the decentralised clean energy sector and has members along the whole value chain. The organisation was founded in 2006 to act as a solution provider for advancing access to clean energy and energy services in developing and emerging countries. As of 2016, ARE has more than 100 members and SNV is one of them.

The Solar Microfinance Program is funded by the French Development Agency AFD and the European Union.
