Event Overview:

This workshop will offer the latest data on costs, incentives and the economic case for investment by companies in Thailand.  For solar, the focus will be on solar rooftops.  It is the latest in what has become a regular BCCT series in this area.

Tesco Lotus completed its first solar rooftop investment on some of its stores in Thailand in 2016, and will explain how it took the investment decision, how the project was managed and what lessons it has drawn for further expansion of its use of solar. 

The focus of the evening will be strongly practical – no long discussion of policy debates about climate change or possible government policies, but the latest hard data which organisations can use.
