Development on Public Transport Electrification in Bangkok, Thailand

TRANSfer III Project, Final Report

Transport is the highest energy-consuming sector in 40% of all countries worldwide and causes about a quarter of energy-related CO2 emissions. The TRANSfer projects act as a mitigation action preparation facility to increase the efforts of developing countries and emerging economies for climate-friendly transport.

In Thailand, TRANSfer III is supporting the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning (OTP) in the “Development on Public Transport Electrification” to identify and develop effective financing and business solutions to upscaling investment in electric public vehicles. This report delivers the five main outputs of the corresponding study.

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) has been working in Thailand on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) since 2009. Funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), GIZ has been implementing the TRANSfer III project to facilitate ambitious mitigation actions for the transport sector.
