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…

The Ministry of Transportation  announced  in 2011 that will implement the mitigation acts such as biofuel use in the transportation sector and sustainable transportation. At an early stage, the improvement of public transport systems called ‘People - centered Urban Mobility in Bangkok’ will perform by using the financial support from Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) or Green Climate Fund. It expected to reduce…

The Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE) set up the financial support called ESCO Revolving Fund in order to encourage the private sector to invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy. This support scheme aims to facilitate the projects owners and investors to seek the project finance. The services of this revolving fund are equity investment, energy efficient equipment leasing and GHG project…

In addition to the role of agriculture sector in climate change adaptation, promoting its role in climate change mitigation is a parallel strategy. The actions should be taken without compromising on overall food security and energy security. The vitality of greenhouse gas emissions reduction from this sector lies in the reduction of methane and nitrous oxide emissions by improving agricultural management. Notwithstanding, this is not…

Thailand Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has includes greenhouse gas reduction approaches as part of the Eleventh National Economic and Social Development Plan (2012-2016) in the section of (Draft) Climate Change Master Plan 2013-2050 which this plan mentions to the reforestation and forest restoration and forest management and aims to reduce greenhouse gas emission. 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…

This presents the building sector with the challenge of reducing GHG emissions, while maintaining, if not enhancing, the quality of services to building occupants. The major causes of these large contributions are the extensive use of fossil fuel-based energy in buildings for thermal comfort, lighting, water heating, electrical equipment and appliances, as well as in the production of construction materials. Buildings are responsible for about…

The waste management sector generates a minor portion of total anthropogenic emission. The sector is in a position to serve as a GHG saver for other sectors by preventing and recovering waste (UNEP, 2010). The potential for  this sector  includes  landfill CH4 recovery; waste incineration with energy recovery; composting of organic waste; controlled wastewater treatment; recycling and waste minimization (IPCC, 2007). Post-consumer waste is…

The transport sector is responsible for about a quarter of global energy-relate carbon emission due its dependence on fuel oil (UNFCCC, 2014). There are many possible actions that can be done to reduce the emission which caused by transportation. The more fuel-efficient vehicles or hybrid vehicles have been supported in many countries. The electric cars are currently in the world’s attention due to its commercialized…
