Dr. Philipp Pischke is the RAC NAMA Director in Thailand. Today, he and his team look back on five successful years. From 2016 to 2021, RAC NAMA has successfully supported Thailand in its energy saving efforts and helped it achieve its climate change targets. How? Primarily through the introduction of climate-friendly and energy-efficient cooling technologies. This is sometimes easier said than done. To Dr. Pischke, it was clear from the very beginning that the project would require a coherent approach and concerted efforts. “Our project targeted our intervention through policy, technical and financial considerations, with respect to both the demand and supply sides and hence a continuous cooperation with the RAC industry and its end-users,” he says.
