Thai-German Programme on Energy Efficiency Development Plan (TGP-EEDP)




Background
 
Nowadays energy is at the heart of everybody's quality of life and a crucial factor for economic growth and employment. Energy demand in Thailand is increasing continuously and depends heavily on energy imports due to limited domestic energy sources. Energy efficiency (EE) plays an important role in strengthening energy security, decreasing household expenditure and production costs, reducing import and trade deficits, and increasing competitiveness. EE also helps mitigating pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions which cause global warming and climate change. The Energy Policy and Planning Office (EPPO) was commissioned by the Ministry of Energy to establish an 20-year Energy Efficiency Development Plan (EEDP) before revising to be Energy Efficiency Plan (EEP) for the period from 2015 to 2036. The plan aims to reduce the energy intensity in Thailand by 30% until 2036 (baseline 2010).
 
Objective
 
Supported and standardised energy efficiency contributes directly to CO2 emission reductions.

  • To establish uniform baseline criteria for all energy efficiency measures and support the improvement of energy data management,
  • To contribute to the development of new and improved energy standards,
  • To strengthen existing support instruments and create additional value,
  • To enhance and facilitate the use of climate relevant instruments for implementing the Energy Efficiency Plan.

Approach

The BMUB IKI project ‘Thai German Programme on Energy Efficiency Development Plan (TGP-EEDP)’ aims at promoting energy efficiency in the industry and building sectors in Thailand. To achieve this, the project supports the implementation of the Thailand long term energy efficiency strategy (the 2011 Energy Efficiency Development Plan 2011-2030 and the updated Energy Efficiency Plan 2015-2036) based on standards and incentives which will have a direct impact on CO2 emission reduction. Examples of instruments to be developed under the EEDP are Energy Efficiency Indicators (EEI), the Standard Offer Programme (SOP), the Energy Efficiency Resource Standard (EERS), supportive instruments for high energy efficiency buildings and optimised ESCO services. The TGP-EEDP will also link the EEDP with climate policy by means of developing Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA’s) on the basis of energy efficiency policies.
