In response to the Thai government’s energy conservation plans, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) partners the Ministry of Energy and the Federation of Thai Industries to host the “Thailand Energy Efficiency Week 2017.”
With support from organisers, IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd. and MEX Exhibitions Pvt. Ltd., the event brings together three exhibitions on energy-saving innovations from Thailand and the rest of the world.
Acting as a rallying point for some of the largest businesses in ASEAN, the event expects to attract over 20,000 participants and raise over 1 billion baht. The exhibition takes place at Challenger 1, IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center, Bangkok, Thailand from 11th – 13th of May, 2017.
Mr. Boonyanit Wongrukmit, Deputy Governor-Corporate Social Affairs, Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), reminds his audience that Phrabat Somdej Phra Paramindra Maha Bhumibol Adulyadej Mahitaladhibet Ramadhibodi Chakrinarubodindara Sayamindaradhiraj Boromanatbophit, who was once regarded as the “father of energy development in Thailand,” should be praised for his efforts in laying the groundwork for energy efficiency and sustainability in Thailand, in order that the whole country, across every sector, may achieve self-sufficiency based on its existing resources.
His Majesty’s words should also remind us to respect and cherish our country’s natural resources, and to use these resources sparingly, as befits their tremendous values. It is, therefore, an obligation of EGAT, as a public institution, to continue His Majesty’s work in improving Thailand’s energy system, in a way that lays the foundations for Thailand’s national development.
In addition, EGAT also continues to campaign for every sector in Thailand to cooperate in reducing its energy consumption level significantly and continuously. This includes EGAT’s support for energy-saving innovations, so that Thailand is prepared for future changes in the energy industry. Thailand’s energy usage is increasing every year.Based on current trends, total electricity consumption is expected to reach up to 30,000 megawatts in 2017.
EGAT is proud to host the “Thailand Energy Efficiency Week 2017” Besides encouraging and stimulating the use of sustainable and energy-saving equipment in Thailand, the exhibition will facilitate an exchange of knowledge between participants in areas such as lighting, energy and electronics, benefitting both Thailand and the wider ASEAN region.
More than 400 companies and 20,000 participants are expected to attend and showcase their products at the 2017 edition. More than 1 billion baht trade is expected to be generated at the exhibition.
