Kick-off event of Thai-German Programme on Energy Efficiency Development Plan

In March 2013 a kick-off event was held to present the Thai-German Programme on Energy Efficiency Development Plan (TGP-EEDP) to the public. The State Secretary of the Thai Ministry of Energy and representatives of the German embassy were joined by many other guests at the ceremony in Bangkok.

Through this programme Germany is supporting Thailand in implementing its plan to reduce national energy consumption by 25 per cent over the next 20 years. The three-year project (2012 to 2015) is supported by the International Climate Initiative (ICI). Among other activities, German experts will advise Thai partners in the implementation of energy saving measures. In cooperation with the Thai Ministry of Energy, experts will identify, plan and apply energy saving measures in the industrial, housing and transport sectors. The aim is to implement the ambitious Thai energy efficiency development plan, thereby achieving direct reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
