Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The project objective is the promotion and facilitation of the widespread application of building energy efficiency technologies and practices in commercial buildings in Thailand.  The project impact is to reduce 23.3 kton of direct CO2 emissions during the project implementation period and 1,630 kton of indirect CO2 emissions from the Thai commercial building sector.  It includes demonstration of energy efficiency measures in nine large commercial buildings such as office buildings, hotels, hypermarkets and hospitals.

IIEC prepared a full-size project proposal for the US$3.6 million GEF-funded project entitled, Promoting Energy Efficiency in Commercial Building in Thailand (PEECB) and designed the implementation plan based on 3 approaches: i.e. awareness enhancement, introduction of improved policies including building energy codes, and establishment of demonstration projects.

The PEECB project was implemented by the Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE), under the Thai Ministry of Energy.

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The objective of this project is to conduct a process and impact evaluation of Thailand’s six-year, US$190 million demand-side management program which is the first comprehensive program implemented in Asia. The extent of the evaluation program involves determining customer attitudes and the satisfaction of manufacturers and distributors of air conditioner, refrigerator, compact fluorescent lamps, and thin tube fluorescent lamps.

Service Provided:

  • Survey of consumer end-use patterns
  • Survey of manufacturers and distributors of energy-efficient products to determine the impact of the DSM program on production and sales
  • In-person interviews with manufacturers of conditioners, refrigerators, compact fluorescent lamps, and thin-tube fluorescent lamps
  • Mail survey of 170 retailers (“green shops”) who participated in the no-interest loan program for high-efficiency air conditioners

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

IIEC collaborated with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in developing sustainable electricity sector options for Thailand.  This project assesses the viability of different energy options for meeting Thailand’s future electricity requirements.  It includes a comparative analysis of different energy scenarios in terms of costs, environmental externalities, and other impacts and issues.

This study projected annual electricity savings to reach 13% (25 GWh) in 2015 with demand-side electricity options that could be achieved through technical measures, energy efficiency public benefits investments and market transformation strategies. The study simulated supply options that would promote renewable energy technologies and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Grid-based electricity generation from biomass could reach 6.7% (12,134 GWh) of the total electricity generation in 2015 through public benefit renewable energy programmes and integration of renewable energy in the power development-planning framework.

 

Services Provided:

  • Energy policy analysis
  • Energy modelling
  • Determination of future energy supply scenarios

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

This project, funded by GTZ for the Department of Energy Promotion and Development (DEDP),   estimated the potential market size for energy services companies (ESCOs) in large commercial and industrial facilities and identified the barriers to energy efficiency financing. The study projected a five-to-seven year achievable potential of 18 – 30 million GJ of electricity savings and CO2 mitigation of 2.1 – 5.7 million tonnes which would require US $ 234 – 698 million in investments. The study also recommended to increase lending in energy efficiency investments, improvements on the existing programs, promotion of the ESCO business model and establishment of energy efficiency revolving fund.
