  • EGAT attends COP22, moving towards low carbon society in 2050
    Details
    Created: Thursday, 01 December 2016 09:50

              In response to Thailand’s commitment of mitigating global warming with the greenhouse gas reduction target of 20-25 % by 2030, EGAT set the goal to reduce 12 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions. EGAT is also ready to be a part of low carbon society in 2050 when the increase of electricity generation from renewable energy will reduce greenhouse gas emission for 95%.

              On November 15, 2016, Mr. Wiwat Chancherngpanich, Deputy Governor - Power Plant Development gave an interview to “Khao Sam Miti”, a news program of Channel 3, about EGAT’s greenhouse gas reduction in the twenty-second session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22) in Marrakech, Morocco. EGAT as a part of Ministry of Energy in the energy sector has implemented measures in response to Paris Agreement to reduce Thailand’s greenhouse gas reduction committed in the last year’s COP21. Thailand’s Power Development Plan 2015 has been revised to reduce the fossil fuel share for power generation but increase the renewable energy share during the late period in the plan, which will contribute to the achievement of greenhouse gas reduction target.

    20161201E 02

              During the earlier period, EGAT has followed Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) in which Thailand submitted its voluntary commitment to reduce the greenhouse gas 7-20% under Business-As-Usual scenario in 2020 from energy and transportation sectors. EGAT plays a part in the commitment to reduce the greenhouse gas emission of 4 million tons by 2020, and at the present EGAT had reduced the greenhouse gas of 3 million tons from its measures of electricity generation from renewable energy and power plant efficiency improvement. After this, Thailand will follow Intended Nationally Determined Contribution with the greenhouse gas reduction target of 20-25 % by 2030 in which EGAT will be responsible of 12 million tons.

              Moreover, for moving towards the low carbon society in 2050 when the greenhouse gas emission will be reduced 95%, EGAT has tried it best utilizing all of its resources to drive the goal. For example, EGAT has used the latest technology of power generation to better the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, especially renewable energy technology which is still under the development for more availability. That is why fossil fuel is still needed for power generation for system security and meeting the demand of electricity for 24 hours. In the future when the renewable energy technology is well developed and more dependable with the reasonable price, Thailand will be able to increase the share of renewable energy generation and reduce the fossil fuel use. However, by generating electricity from fossil fuel, EGAT uses the modern technology to increase the production efficiency, which enables the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from power generation.
