Leading global scientists recently revised their predictions in relation to the man-made climate change.
It turns out that the majority of previous predictions were a lot more optimistic than what is actually happening.
As per the recent United Nations report, we have just 12 years to limit a possible climate change catastrophe. The warning came from world’s leading scientists, who stressed that we only have a little over a decade to limit the global warming to a maximum of 1.5C.
Anything above that could mean that a risk of droughts, floods, extreme heat and poverty could rise significantly for hundreds of millions of people around the Planet.
It is now very important for each and every country to do what they can to help slow this process down. We’re happy to see that Cambodia takes its share of responsibility.
About 50% of al power produced in Cambodia already comes from hydropower dams and now, the government announced that about 15% (or 390 megawatts) of all energy produced in the country in 2020 will come from solar panels.
“This figure of 15 percent includes solar projects in Bavet, Kampong Speu, Kampong Chhnang, Batambang, and Siem Reap provinces. Together, they will supply about 15 percent of the energy in the national grid by next year. It is a huge amount.” – said Keo Ratanak, director-general of Electricite du Cambodge (EDC).
Cambodia currently produces around 30% of its energy from coal-powered facilities. The addition of the new solar projects will undoubtedly help bring this number down.
The Sea Of Opportunities Cambodia is proud to be investing in a country that prioritises the use of renewable and clean energy sources, actively participating in saving the Planet we all share.
