Roadmap set for ‘low-carbon’ Thailand

Reading Time: 1 minute

BKK smogThai and Japanese researchers have embarked on a “Roadmap for a Low-carbon Thailand towards 2050” initiative that is aimed at contributing to widespread climate-policy planning in the Kingdom.

The roadmap is the result of joint research between Bangkok’s Thammasat University’s Sirindhorn International Institute of Technology (SIIT), the Asian Institute of Technology, the National Institute for Environmental Studies at Japan’s Kyoto University and the Mizuho Information and Research Institute in Japan.

The aim of the research is that the outcome of the studies would trigger policies for sustainable energy and the environmental transition of Thailand towards a low-carbon society by creating awareness among “policy-makers, administrators, stakeholders and communities”, said Bundit Limmeechokchai, SIIT associate professor and head of the Thai-Japanese research team.

The measures revolve around clean power, green industry, smart passenger transport, effective freight transport, Thai-style comfortable houses and modern, “green” buildings. Sources of renewable energy such as solar, wind, biomass and biofuels have been included in the initiative, creating a broad range of investment opportunities.

Renewable energy technologies and clean technologies would play crucial roles for a future low-carbon environment, while on the demand side, energy-efficient devices and fuel-switching could contribute to higher greenhouse gas reduction, Limmeechokchai said.
