Energy scenario

Energy scenario to mitigate GHG emissions

The development path in south-east Asian countries may be different from the ones of the developed countries like Japan, European countries and US. In the discussion of future scenarios in Thailand, therefore, we need to consider future uncertainties about economy, technology and decision-making.  The cost-benefit analysis which is a common tool for technology assessment needs to be extended for the case with variety of uncertainties.

The objectives of the research are developing methodologies for future scenario identification for energy supply-demand system with uncertainties and for scenario-based cost-benefit analysis of new technologies and identification of uncertainties in future Thailand energy scenario.

This research group is divided into two sub group, first is the Life Cycle Assessment for energy system sub group and Energy Efficiency sub group.

Methods

To estimate the reduction of CO2 by the introduction of the New Technology (LCA based assessment). However some of constrain such as limitation of the data since the data currently they have is conversion measure from the fuel sources (not the technology information). Moreover, the emission data from the power plant therefore will be used on the development of the energy scenario and planning.

LCA as tools to measure the CO2 emission, there are two ways of collecting data:

  • Data gathering from research group
  • Data gathering from other reliable sources

Detail information in some of the research group had been gathered

  • Solar areas, potential of area should start from rough area available in the roof (Google)
  • GHG emission from Rainfed group which they already collaborate with Biofuel
    • Total efficiency if they use energy crops for cultivation
  • Building sector data information
    • Green building certificate from Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE)[1]
    • Building code includes the landscape but not include the appliances (> 2000m2) for new building, no obligation for existing buildings
    • Labeling only the appliances
