      This field is limited by 200 characters.

      A.3Description of mitigation action



      According to Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency Database, in 2015 government buildings accounted for 21 % of the total energy use by buildings in Thailand with grow projected at 3.3 % per year. 


      Building new energy efficient/ green buildings or retrofitting existing government buildings is often economically viable and can further stimulate private investment in commercial and residential sectors. Current government policy plans retrofits based on the operational age of buildings and does not take into consideration the potential to achieve higher levels of energy efficiency . Further, there is no support to achieve standards beyond basic Building Energy Code requirements for new government buildings nor is there an existing system to assess and collect operational energy performance data of government buildings. The proposed NAMA engages the Pollution Control Department (PCD) to implement a green building standard and certification scheme for existing government buildings. It will support the National Pollution Control Committee in the development of an energy efficiency standard for existing government buildings. Additional activities include MRV, and capability - building. The financial support is expected via ESCO model (at a later stage). This NAMA seeks to stimulate private buildings to adopt green building standards through public sector leadership.

      The actions proposed in this NAMA will support Thailand's INDC of 20% emissions reduction from BAU by 2030. It is also in line with Thailand's national goal of reducing energy intensity by 30% by 2036, compared to 2010 levels.
