Nationally appropriate mitigation action (NAMA) is a voluntary measure to mitigate GHG emission among developed and developing countries. NAMA activities are not limited as long as emission reduction is in line with the goals of national sustainability including economic and social development, ending of poverty, advancement of technology, financing and capacity building. Every country has set its own measures in mitigating GHG emissions. With supports…

Thailand, Ministry of Energy has launched the energy conservation standard for new buildings or nine categories of modified building included hospital, school, office, condominium, building, community building, theater, hotel, mall which defines the area of 2,000 square meter or more to increase energy efficiency and maximize energy conservation plan. (EEP 2015) The Building Energy Code is the compulsory strategies imposed under Energy Conservation Act, 1992.…

The current policy  frameworks enhance the waste reduction & utilization, encourage waste-to-energy, establish the local governments for the development of waste management facility and endorse public and private sectors to participate in waste management projects (UNEP, 2011). The government set the install capacity target for this technology at 500 MW by 2036. With an attractive incentive from the Thai government, the waste-to-energy power production has…

Additional, Forest and Plant Conservation Research Office has appointed the…

Thailand has developed its long-term energy planning in Power Development Plan (PDP) 2015, which integrated the Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP 2015-2036) and Energy Efficiency Development Plan (EEDP 2015-2036), and set out the goals on three principles: Security: the security of power system maintains in response to the demand of electricity which avoids relying too much on natural gas generation. Economy: the electricity price shall…

In 2012, carbon dioxide emissions from international aviation and maritime transport together contributed for 1.3% and 2.2%, respectively, to global carbon dioxide emissions. Carbon dioxide emissions of international aviation and maritime transport are continuously increasing due to strong growth in transport demand. 62% and 79% of carbon dioxide emissions from international aviation and maritime transport were counted towards international emissions, not by specific country. The…

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) policy which supports developing countries to reduce greenhouse gas from deforestation and forest degradation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks. Developing countries, participating in the program, receive positive reinforcement and incentives. What is REDD+ ? It is a framework which has been introduced at…
