  • 18. The ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation (APAEC) 2010-2015July 2009: : ASEAN Ministers launched the third series of implementation plan of the ASEAN Vision 2020 as prescribed in the ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint 2015, named as APAEC 2010-2015, to serve as the blueprint for ASEAN cooperation in the field of energy for the period 2010-2015 under the theme “Bringing Policies to Actions: Towards a Cleaner, more Efficient and Sustainable ASEAN Energy Community”, to support the realization of the ASEAN Economic Community towards 2015 and beyond. Targets outlined on Low Emission Strategies:Goal of reducing regional energy intensity of at least 8% by 2015 based on 2005 level.To achieve a collective target of 15% for regional renewable energy in the total power installed capacity by 2015.

  • 20. Expected CO2 Reduction from National Targets24% reduction in CO2 by 2030 is expected under Alternative Policy Scenario (APS), compare to Business as Usual Scenario (BA) as a result of the energy efficiency and renewable energy development action plans in National level to support regional aspiration. This is based on member countries fulfilling their current commitments to reduce the fuel consumption by end-users and power generation, as well as install more carbon free or carbon neutral generation sources, such as nuclear, biomass, wind and solar power facilities.
  • 21. ASEAN’ Current ResultsRenewable energy total installed capacity in the ASEAN increased significantly from 24,424.84 MW in 2006 to 39,097.58 MW in 2011.Reached about 0.34 toe/million 2005 USD in 2010, Energy Intensity in 2011 back on the same level of 2005.
  • 22. Key FindingsAs member countries continue to pursue their economic goals, energy consumption and CO2 emission in ASEAN as a region will growth very fast, put a pressure on energy security and environmental stability.If current energy (fossil fuel) production levels in the region do not increase - the region will have to source out this additional demand from outside the region, or need to tap more on its potential on renewable energies which are abundantly available through the region.Appropriate energy efficiency and conservation programs, low-carbon technologies and increased shares of non-fossil fuels in power generation - would be needed to reduce carbon intensity and enhance energy security.
  • 23. Next Step: Development of the 4th ASEAN Energy OutlookAPS will utilize the full potential of the renewable energy resources and EE&C action plants in the region under the energy market integration to reach the potentially maximum role of renewable energy in energy supply and reduction of Energy Intensity.References to (i) clearly define a legal and policy framework to promote RE and EE&C into sustainable development strategy; (ii) strengthening research and development on RE and EE&C technology appropriate to the ASEAN region; (iii) continue studies on RE and EE&C market and provide funding for promotion of environmentally friendly green energy.To be presented for the endorsement of ASEAN Ministers on Energy Meeting in 2015 in Malaysia.

  • 38. Thailand’s Energy LEDS: Key Lessons Learned•Co-benefits reveal positive aspects of GHG mitigation.•MRV process needs cooperation among related ministries.•Abatement costs of actions are identified.•It is concluded among Thai stakeholders that the NAMAs action of 7-20% reduction in CO2 will be unilateral NAMAs.•However, MRVs of such actions are required to ensure GHG reduction achievement and transparency.•Experiences learned from pre2020 is used in development of post2020 agreement or the intended nationally determined contribution (INDC) .

  • 40. Thailand’s Energy LEDS: Conclusions•Thailand’s Energy LEDS will result in transformational changes in both supply side and demand side.•To achieve peak target, Thailand needs, i) LEDS Capacity Building, ii) sustainable Feed-in Tariff scheme for renewable electricity, iii) enforcement of Energy Efficiency laws in buildings and industries, iv) co-funding of the LEDS actions.•The peak target will not be achieved if they are not planned & implemented in the early stage. The lock-in emissions will happen to Thailand.•In addition, M R V of LEDS actions are of necessity.
