I. Introduction: In the early 1990s, Thailand had one of Asia?s fastest growing economies, with GDP increasing over 10 percent on average from 1990-93, and showed signs of continued economic expansion. Such economic growth was expected to require substantial investment in the power sector, with average annual growth projected at 14 percent annually, or about 2 GW per year. To meet this challenge, the Government of Thailand (GOT) established a strategy for the power sector that required: (a) increasing power sector investments substantially; (b) accelerating the pace of privatization in the power supply industry; (c) making a strong thrust towards energy conservation; and (d) placing an increased emphasis on environ-mentally-sound and sustainable development. To support energy conservation activities, the GOT passed the Energy Conservation Promotion Act, or ENCON Act, in 19921, to provide a regulatory framework for energy conservation and efficiency programs and investments. This Act included the creation of an Energy Conservation Promotion Fund2 (ECF) to provide working capital, grants and subsidies to promote and facilitate energy conservation measures and select renewable energy initiatives. Under the ENCON Act, the Department of Energy Development and Promotion (DEDP) was appointed as the executing agency for the Compulsory (energy audits and public/private building efficiency investments) and Complementary3 (public relations and training) Programs and the National Energy Policy Office (NEPO) was authorized to manage the Voluntary Program (demonstrations/pilots, renewables and research and development). In parallel, and by Cabinet resolution, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), the national generation and transmission utility4, established a National DSM Program, with support from NEPO, to improve the capability of the power sector to deliver cost-effective energy services and promote the adoption of energy-efficient equipment throughout the country.
