Energy Conservation Promotion Act B.E. 2535 and B.E. 2550
The Energy Conservation Promotion Act has three main components: A compulsory programme that requires 'designated' factories and buildings to conduct energy audit, set targets for energy conservation. It includes a voluntary programme with a focus on small- to medium-sized companies and a complementary programme covering research programmes and awareness raising activities. Measures include:
- Improvement in combustion efficiency of fuels
- Energy recycling (waste heat recovery)
- Prevention of energy loss
- More efficient use of electricity
The act created the Energy Conservation Promotion Fund to finance projects and research related to the issue of energy conservation.
