PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The project aims to strengthen the capacity of public and private actors for the green cooling approach and thereby support the transformation towards climate-friendly technologies in their countries and globally.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Activities in Thailand focus on enhancing end-user uptake of green cooling technologies and establishing a “green cooling community”. Based on challenges and opportunities specific to the country, GCI in Thailand has defined 3 key working streams:

  • Demonstration focuses on improving the availability and accessibility of information on the technical and economic feasibility of green cooling technologies based on demonstration projects as well as identifying opportunities to scale up the uptake of these technologies.
  • Sustainability of Training supports dialogue on sustainable skill advancement of technicians and experts in the cooling sector, ensuring that they are equipped for green cooling technologies and that end-users can rely on them.
  • GCI Network will harness knowledge products, expertise, and experience on green cooling and use them to establish and strengthen the green cooling community within the country and the region.

At the same time, GCI supports the launch and implementation of the “Cooling Innovation Fund” (CIF) of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), which aims to fund innovation in and upscaling of green cooling technologies. As a regional hub for GCI, Thailand will also lead and promote activities that enhance knowledge sharing on green cooling within the region.
