PROJECT OBJECTIVE

In its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), Thailand committed to reducing 20-25% of emissions from the energy, transport, waste and industry sectors by 2030 below business as usual

 

Main activities under TGCP-Energy are:

  • Conduct studies and develop policy recommendation papers on GHG mitigation-related topics (e.g. Renewable Energy Forecast, Electrification system for remote areas or islands in Thailand, MRV system for energy sector etc.), and provincial energy data management roadmap.
  • Design and develop innovative tools to assist the energy planning process, namely energy system modeling and the integrated energy planning platform.
  • Strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Energy’s staff in renewable energy, emerging energy technologies, climate change and effective energy planning process.
  • Develop provincial energy scenarios for Thai pilot provinces to support their planning process.
  • Support the implementation of project / activities under the provincial energy action plan in the pilot provinces.
  • Transfer knowledge and build up capacity of Thai institutions in the development of provincial energy scenarios.

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The TGCP supports Thailand through a cross-sectoral approach in selected sectors: climate policy, agriculture, energy, wasteand wastewater management and water including the climate finance of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to drive the climate actions in Thailand. Capitalizing on GIZ’s close and long-standing cooperation with Thai partners, the team works closely with key partner ministries which receive tailor-made support in relation to the NDCs. For the overall programme coordination, the Policy component ensures alignment between the different sectors, thus providing coherent and systematic cross-sectoral support on the topic of the Thai NDC operationalization.
