RAC NA­MA Thai­land

The project promotes climate-friendly and energy-efficient cooling technologies in Thailand, with a special focus on domestic refrigerators, commercial refrigerators, air-conditioners, and chillers. Its first phase ended in July 2021.

Nowadays, the use of refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) technologies accounts for approximately 50% of the electricity consumed in Thailand. Without effective intervention, the growing energy demand for cooling is projected to double by 2030. As the RAC sector is also one of the country’s largest greenhouse gases (GHG) emitters, reducing emissions from this sector will be key to help Thailand achieve its ambitious GHG mitigation targets of 20-25% by 2030.

At the same time, Thailand is an important industrial hub in the global RAC sector. To remain competitive, producers need to be well prepared to adjust to the changing requirements driven by international agreements. Consequently, their challenge will be to produce highly energy-efficient and climate-friendly technologies.

Facts RAC Thailand


RAC NAMA Thailand wants to reach the following goals:

  • Thailand receives support to achieve its energy saving and greenhouse gases mitigation targets.
  • Companies that produce refrigerators and air-conditioners stay competitive against imports. They improve the energy efficiency of their products and get to know new technologies.
  • Technicians learn important new skills that prepare them for the future.
  • Consumers have a wider choice of energy-efficient products and can save money on their electricity bills.

In preparing Thailand for the technology change in the RAC sector, the readiness of the service sector is very crucial as they provide services to serve consumers concerning green cooling products. Accordingly, the RAC NAMA project aims to support training of servicing staff, e.g., installers, repairers, and technicians, to be equipped with necessary knowledge of the climate-friendly and energy-efficient technologies and handling of potential safety challenges.
