Energy Consumption and GHG Emission Assessment for Supporting a Community Energy Plan: A Study Based on the Rural Household Energy Survey

Authors : Sansanee Sansiribhan and Anusorn Rattanathanaophat

Abstract: The community energy plan development is one of the projects promoted by the Ministry of Energy, Thai government in 2006 with the purpose to self-reliance on the energy, the use of alternative energy and energy conservation of a rural community. The energy potential is also one of the main factors made to the success of community energy plan, however, the characteristics of energy consumption of each local community area is different. The aim of this research were thus to study characteristics of rural household energy consumption and to estimate emission of greenhouse gases in residential sector. Moreover, the appropriate energy policy to suit in rural community was investigated. The study of household energy consumption based finding on the collecting information in Huaiwai village, Kanchanaburi Province.The results showed that Bann Huaiwai village consumed a total energy of 179.78 toe (tonne of oil equivalent). The energy related GHG emission. The GHG emissions from the rural household energy consumption by energy types was approximately 593.9 tCO -eq. Three energy measures proposed for the studied rural community which is 2 corresponded with the national energy policy.
