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.
Following activities were conducted by IIEC during the project: 1) Detailed baseline analysis, data collection and gap analysis; 2) Selection and assessment of demonstration projects; 3) Detailed design of project activities; 4) Stakeholder consultation and coordination meetings; 5) Preparation of project work plan and document.
