Supporting energy-saving innovation at “Thailand Energy Efficiency Week 2017”
An International Exhibition on Energy-Efficient Products and Technologies.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In response to the Thai government’s energy conservation plans, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) has partnered with the Ministry of Energy and the Federation of Thai Industries to host “Thailand Energy Efficiency Week 2017.” With support from organizers IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd. and MEX Exhibitions Pvt. Ltd., the event will bring together three exhibitions on energy-saving innovations from Thailand and throughout the world. Acting as a rallying point for some of the largest businesses in ASEAN, the event is expected to attract over 20,000 participants and raise over 1 billion baht. The exhibition will take 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 the whole country, across every sector, may achieve self-sufficiency based on its existing resources. His Majesty’s words should also remind us all to respect and cherish our country’s natural resources, and to use these resources sparingly, as befits their tremendous value. 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. Additionally, EGAT also continues to campaign for every sector in Thailand to cooperate in reducing its energy consumption level significantly and continuously. This includes through EGAT’s support for innovation in energy-saving technologies, so that Thailand can be prepared for future changes in the energy industry. Thailand’s energy usage is increasing every year, and in 2017, based on current trends, total electricity consumption is expected to reach up to 30,000 megawatts.

With this being so, EGAT is proud to act as host of “Thailand Energy Efficiency Week 2017” - An International Exhibition for Energy-Efficient Products and Technology – in order to encourage and stimulate for the use of sustainable and energy-saving equipment in Thailand. It is hoped that the exhibition will facilitate an exchange of knowledge between participants in areas such as lighting, energy and electronics, in ways that are beneficial both for Thailand and the wider ASEAN region. The exhibition is scheduled to take place at Challenger 1, IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center, Bangkok, Thailand from 11th – 13th of May, 2017.

And this year, more than 400 companies and 20,000 participants are expected to attend and showcase their products, thus helping to raise over 1 billion baht.”
