This product is not available in the selected currency.


The conference from which this collection of essays grew was organized to address the importance of energy efficiency for Thailand's future economic growth. Like many developing countries, Thailand has been enjoying an impressive Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate in the last few years, prompting many to predict that it will soon "graduate" to join the ranks of the newly industrialized countries. However, these positive economic indicators have also been accompanied by a worrisome one: a dramatic increase in energy use. Between 1986 and 1987 energy use grew by over 15 percentoover twice the rate of GDP growthoand Thailand spent over $1.5 billion on imported energy sources. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the global imperatives for implementing energy efficiency measures in Thailand and other developing countries. Case-study examples are then given of the global experience in energy efficiency in industry, buildings, transportation, and electric power generation. Co-published with the International Institute for Energy Conservation.
