Thailand - Climate Protection Trough Energy Efficiency

The demand for energy in developing countries is skyrocketing, especially in export-dominated economies. But as consumption climbs, so, too, do energy prices and the burden on the climate. Energy efficiency is becoming ever more important. In Thailand, local energy consultants, with international aid, are working with manufacturing operations to help them slash their energy consumption - all while maintaining or even increasing economic output. The Thai government is hoping to use the project as a model to promote more public consciousness about energy use. Bangkok wants to reduce carbon emissions in the industrial production sector by nearly 20 percent in the coming years.
