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.

This project evaluated the Thai appliance energy labeling program and compared the U. S. and Thai consumer energy behaviors and appliance labeling.
This was also the first detailed evaluation of the Thai DSM programs. It revealed that after just three years of implementation, the Thai appliance labeling program had a significantly greater impact on the consumer appliance market than the then 20-year-old U.S. program. More than 60% of Thai consumers asked about or looked at the label against only 20% of consumers in the US. Energy efficiency was reportedly  among the top-three purchase priorities for 28% of Thai appliance consumers, compared to just 11% of U.S. consumers.
The project showed that salespeople played a significant role in both appliance labeling programs and influenced at least 50 percent of appliance sales. In some instances, the incentives they earned motivated them to sell appliances that had additional features and used more energy. Finally, the project likewise revealed that U.S. and Thai policymakers had different objectives for their appliance labeling programs. The U.S. program sought to provide consumers with information that would assist them in their appliance purchase decisions. In contrast, the Thai program’s objective was clearly behavioral and sought to persuade consumers to buy a more efficient appliance that would save money and protect the environment. To support the program, the Thai government implemented a massive, nationwide advertising campaign.

IIEC conducted this study for the National Energy Policy Office of Thailand (NEPO) and covered four cities in Thailand (Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai and Khong Khaen). The objective of the study was to assess the transport sector energy use and identify possibly improvements.  This included an assessment of current energy use in the transport sector, site visits and report evaluating full spectrum of methods for reducing energy use, with 8 specific recommendations.

The policy analysis presented a description of institutional factors affecting Thailand's transport administration, and a framework for evaluating pricing biases existing in Thailand's transport system. It then evaluated a full spectrum of methods for reducing energy use. Finally, IIEC developed eight specific recommendations and presented them for consideration at a conference of Thai government agencies involved in the transport sector. Results from this conference were incorporated into the final report.

As a result of this paper, IIEC supported Khon Kaen University develop and write a proposal on “Green Campus” to the NEPO. Specifically, IIEC documented and justified theenergy saving benefits of the project including a Bicycle proposal to  increase the energy efficiency of transportation systems on the campus and to change the behavior of students and other members of the campus community regarding the use of motorcycles and other motor vehicles and to increase the use of bicycles.

IIEC-Asia helped Khon Kaen University develop and write a proposal on “Green Campus” to the National Energy Policy Office of Thailand (NEPO). Specifically, IIEC documented and justified the energy saving benefits of the project which included 3 subcomponents:

1. Bicycle proposal. The project was intended to increase the energy efficiency of transportation systems on the campus and to change the behavior of students and other members of the campus community regarding the use of motorcycles and other motor vehicles and to increase the use of bicycles.

2. Waste water treatment proposal. The project would shift waste water treatment from mechanical, aerobic, and chemical treatment to an environmentally-sound and energy-efficient wetlands-based waste water treatment, would reduce the energy use of the current waste water treatment system and would research and model an alternatives system for possible broader use.

3. Source separation of solid waste and hazardous waste. The project would significantly reduce the solid waste stream and divert the remaining waste stream into more energy efficient recycling and biodegradation.

IIEC-Asia provided EnergyWorks (C.I.) LLC. with a list of five pre-qualified potential business associates in Thailand for BG-Systems distributors.

IIEC-Asia pre-qualified the potential associates by developing and conducting a survey and by collecting and analyzing self-reported data from candidate companies. It found one partner who had the system manufacturing capability in addition to the client's desired distribution and marketing capability. The client entered into preliminary negotiations with this company.
