ECA has been commissioned by the Asian Development Bank to assess the economic justification for a proposed inter-connector between the rapidly growing power sectors of Cambodia and Lao PDR. The inter-connector will allow Cambodia to benefit from access to low-cost Lao hydropower and Lao PDR to benefit from the reliability offered by Cambodia’s increasing baseload thermal generation capacity. The proposed project forms part of wider initiatives to integrate the electricity systems of the Greater Mekong Sub-Region.
