ESCAP and the Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE), Thailand Ministry of Energy have collaborated to support three provinces of Thailand in developing their Sustainable Energy Transition (SET) road maps using the NEXSTEP tool. This SET road map, developed for Surat Thani province, identifies the technological options and policy measures that will help the province navigate the transition of its energy sector in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, national targets and commitment towards the Paris Agreement.
This SET road map has two main objectives. First, it aims to establish a scenario baseline for the 2019- 2030 period, taking into consideration the current policy settings. Second, it identifies the measures and technological options that could raise Surat Thani’s efforts to align with the SDG 7 targets and national targets as well as achieving deep decarbonisation of its energy system
