2nd REmap and RRA workshop for Thailand
23 – 24 February 2017
Bangkok, Thailand

Following IRENA’s November workshop that discussed key energy challenges, current energy status, and frameworks for promoting renewable energy in Thailand, this consultation workshop will engage experts and government officials in the preparation of a joint REmap-RRA report — aimed at accelerating renewable energy deployment in Thailand.

The workshop aims to develop insights and knowledge through a comprehensive multi-stakeholder consultation over the period of two days. Discussions will centre on the potential of renewable energy into the future, based on analysis done for the country through the REmap framework, and the key assumptions for determining this potential and other important considerations such as costs, effects of renewable deployment on air pollution and energy-related CO2. The workshop seeks opinions on the preliminary results presented to experts, so revision can occur if necessary ahead of finalisation of the REmap/RRA report by June, 2017. The workshop will also include a short discussion on the RRA component.

Kindly note that this event is by Invitation only.
