Objectives and Scope
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Project is in line with ADB's Country Partnership Strategy for Thailand 2007-2011 which focuses on three core strategic areas: infrastructure, environmental sustainability, and capital markets. The government's Alternative Energy Development Plan, approved by the Cabinet on January 2009, notes the potential of Thailand's solar energy and the savings on energy imports than can be made through its use, with private sector investment. The Project is also consistent with ADB's Energy Policy which emphasizes investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
