Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The project crafted a renewable energy policy for the Thai government in order to promote grid-connected renewables.

IIEC provided data for an international review of renewable energy policies and their ramifications. Based on this review and its experience on renewables in Asia, IIEC provided recommendations on policies for grid-connected, distributed, and off-grid renewables. In addition to discussing the need for fiscal incentives, such as production incentives or renewables set-asides, IIEC discussed the role of the ENCON Fund and made suggestions for projects that would help overcome some of the non-fiscal barriers that renewables faced in Thailand. The project final report summarized the project team’s work which included revisions to the Small Power Producers Program and quantification of environmental externalities.

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The objective of the project is to introduce a quality structure for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, components and installations in Thailand on the basis of the Global Approval Program for Photovoltaics (PV GAP). PV GAP incorporates a number of international PV standards.

The project organised a national level seminar for all stakeholders of the Thai PV industry including informative site visits. The project also produced a short and medium term action plan which served as a permanent PV quality structure in Thailand on the basis of European know-how. Thus the promotion of the use of internationally recognized European-based standards and quality management process in design, fabrication, installation, sales, and services of PV components and systems in Thailand.

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

To remove the informational barrier and other unidentified barriers that are hindering the development of solar thermal application in selected industrial and commercial sub-sectors in Thailand e.g. food, textile industry as well as in hospital and hotel and in central hot water systems of multi-storey buildings. In Thailand, solar thermal is typically perceived as the technology for residential applications and thus most energy policy makers, industry and end-users, particularly SMEs are not well aware of its potential. The project identifies all related technical and non-technical barriers through detailed situation analysis and develops a set of solutions, guidelines, measures, and recommendations.

 

Services Provided:

- Industry and commercial sub-sector review
- Supply chain analysis
- Policy review
- Market survey and site visits
- Conduct of training workshop
