International Dissemination Workshop

JGSEE-CEE organized in collaboration with the Demand Side Management and Planning division (DSM office) of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), the MECON project’s International Dissemination Workshop on “Improving Energy Efficiency amongst Low-income Households in the Greater Mekong Sub-region” on 17 September 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The event aimed at disseminating the final results of this two-year research project, identifying possible implementation measures, and stimulating discussions among policy makers, energy experts and other relevant stakeholders from partner countries of this project, i.e. Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and UK.

During the workshop, MECON researchers from each of the 5 countries represented in the project had an opportunity to present the key findings of their investigations as well as policy recommendations. Policy makers of the region had also an opportunity to share their views and discuss the energy efficiency and policy situation of their respective countries. Two panel discussions were held during the event involving a number of stakeholders from the energy sector and aiming at identifying ways of overcoming energy efficiency barriers and promoting future collaboration among GMS countries. There were also parallel sessions during which researchers of the project had an opportunity to present the full details of their research investigations, based on the 6 main tasks of the project, i.e. (1) baseline information energy data analysis, (2) technological perspective, (3) socio-economic perspective, (4) energy efficiency policy analysis, (5) cost-benefit analyses, and (6) institutional conditions.
