Thailand Energy Options Study (2000 - 2001)
IIEC collaborated with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in developing sustainable electricity sector options for Thailand. This project assesses the viability of different energy options for meeting Thailand’s future electricity requirements. It includes a comparative analysis of different energy scenarios in terms of costs, environmental externalities, and other impacts and issues.
This study projected annual electricity savings to reach 13% (25 GWh) in 2015 with demand-side electricity options that could be achieved through technical measures, energy efficiency public benefits investments and market transformation strategies. The study simulated supply options that would promote renewable energy technologies and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Grid-based electricity generation from biomass could reach 6.7% (12,134 GWh) of the total electricity generation in 2015 through public benefit renewable energy programmes and integration of renewable energy in the power development-planning framework.
Services Provided: 1) Energy policy analysis; 2) Energy modelling; and 3) Determination of future energy supply scenarios.
