Last Thursday, 9 November, Team Sweden hosted the Pioneer the Possible Thailand at Sasin School of Management.
The Pioneer the Possible Thailand is a platform where the focus areas and agenda are set based on findings from feasibility study and input from both Thailand and Sweden. The event created the opportunity for the public and private sectors to meet and discuss the future of renewable energy.
The event begun with the Ambassador H.E. Mrs. Anna Hammargren, Deputy Director Associate Professor Piyachart Phiromswad, and the Trade Commissioner Mr. Kacper Pierzynowski giving the welcoming remarks.
After this an insight of Thailand’s Policy on Energy Efficiency was given by Dr. Apiradee Thammanomai (Director of Strategy and Planning Division at Ministry of Energy, Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency) and an inspiring keynote about green hydrogen energy opportunities in Thailand was given by Assistant Governor Dr. Narin Phoawanich (Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand).
The discussions then moved into the future of sustainable energy with three compelling case studies. Mr. Gianandrea Bruzzone and Mr. Manoj Pagar from ABB illuminated green hydrogen production offerings, Dr. Pernilla Olausson (Siemens Energy) envisioned the Net Zero City, while Mr. Lars Svensson (Midsummer) lead the charge in transitioning to renewable energy sources.
They all agreed that society needs to be more energy-efficient, while also transitioning to other energy sources to become carbon-neutral in the future. This can be best achieved through a joint effort by energy suppliers and consumers.
A huge thanks to Business Sweden for organising this insightful and inspiring event!
