This project document presents the details of activities to be conducted in Thailand, with Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO) as the implementing partner in close collaboration with the Ministry of Energy’s Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE) and Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT).
The project will focus largely on capacity building and assisting government, manufacturing, distributing, retail, consumer and environmental stakeholders throughout the Asian region to implement the most cost-effective energy efficiency measure available. In each participating country, priority activities will be carried out to help foster each country's preferred process for developing or expanding its ES&L program.
The project "Promoting the development of standards and labeling for energy efficiency" or (Barrier Removal to the Cost-Effective Development and Implementation of Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling Project-BRESL) Project United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been financially supported by the Global Environment. Facility (GEF) to implement the project. BRESL is aimed at rapidly accelerating the adoption and implementation of energy standards and labels (ES&L) in Asia, and in so doing brings about energy savings from the use of energy efficient appliances/equipment. The project also facilitates harmonization of test procedures, standards and labels among developing countries in Asia, when appropriate. The participating countries include China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Thailand. The project is expected to cost-effectively deliver an average 10% reduction in total residential and commercial energy use in partner countries at the time of peak impact by the year 2030 compared to a baseline scenario, thereby contributing to more environmentally sustainable and economically efficient development.
