Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

IIEC is the lead consultant for an Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Thailand’s Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) project on Mainstreaming Energy Efficiency (EE) in Municipalities in Thailand.


The objective of the first phase of this two-year project is to identify standard energy efficiency measures applicable to buildings and street lighting in selected municipalities and develop a sustainable business model(s) for large scale implementation incorporating private sector financing models and the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).

Under this project, the IIEC is tasked to support ADB and PEA in:

1. The demonstration of the benefits of energy efficiency projects implemented through customized financing arrangements in the 6 pilot municipalities, i.e. Lumphun, Nongkhai, Udonthani, Banpong, Krabi and Trang.
2. Finalizing a plan for large scale replication nation-wide complimented by enhancing the capacity of PEA and municipalities in energy efficiency project development and implementation.
3. A communication and outreach program covering all sectors of the community.

Point 1 above is currently being implemented by IIEC with a pioneering municipal energy efficiency demonstration project in Trang Municipality, including the installation and operation of Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) street lighting.It will be the first- ever LED street lighting demonstration project in Thailand and will be implemented in all six municipalities with a total of 100 LED roadway luminaires to be installed.

LED technology is considered the next generation of high-efficient lighting as it uses about half as much energy as conventional sodium streetlights, and typically lasts for up to 50,000 hours (almost 6 years of continuous use) instead of 10,000 to 30,000 hours lifetime for the conventional technologies for street lighting applications.
