Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

The International Finance Corporation (IFC) has assigned IIEC to conduct a comprehensive market Survey on Sustainable Energy Leasing and ESCO Business Opportunities in Thailand.


The aim of this project is to identify business opportunities in lease financing combined with Energy Service Companies (ESCOs), Energy Efficiency (EE), Renewable Energy (RE) and Cleaner Production (CP) services and also other energy financing options in Thailand.

On the 19th of May 2011, the IIEC successfully organized a workshop in Bangkok attended by 60 delegates from the commercial banking and leasing sectors, ESCOs, equipment suppliers, utilities and government stakeholders in Thailand (see photograph on the right). The objective was to present and discuss the interim findings of the survey and gather critical feedback from the audience. Comments and suggestions from the workshop will be incorporated into the final recommendations to be presented to the stakeholders in early June 2011.The IIEC project team has carried out a survey and assessment of the existing regulatory, legal and fiscal frameworks, market drivers and barriers, market potential for energy efficiency and renewable energy.

The final project output is to provide recommendations for IFC on potential mechanisms that could enable the uptake of energy lease and ESCO business in EE/RE/CP in Thailand.
