Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) cooperated with the Office of the Basic Education Commission (OBEC) to announce the operation result of the teachers and the youth in the energy and environment conservation network under EGAT Green Learning Room Project, aiming to cultivate energy efficiency attitude which can be expanded to communities throughout the country.


          On February 9, 2019, Mr. Patana Sangsriroujana, EGAT Deputy Governor - Strategy and Ms.Sirima Monmai, Senior Expert in Education Research of Office of the Basic Education Commission presided in the ceremony of EGAT Green Learning Awards 2018 for model schools, the youth and teachers in relation to energy and environment conservation under the EGAT Green Learning Room Project, held at Kasem Chatikavanij Convention Hall, EGAT Headquarters, Bang Kruai District, Nonthaburi Province.



          Mr. Patana Sangsriroujana, EGAT spokesperson said that since 1998 EGAT has been implementing an energy saving and environment conservation program, namely “Green Learning Room Project,” leading to several further projects and activities.EGAT aims to cultivate positive attitude towards energy conservation to teachers and students by creating habits and values on energy saving and electricity efficiency. Moreover, they are trained to be the leaders for implementing energy and environment conservation activities which can be expanded from schools to students’residences and communities. These activities can also concretely decrease energy consumption and carbon dioxide emission, which reduces the expenses of schools and communities, leading to economic sustainability of the country.


          The ceremony of EGAT Green Learning Awards 2018 included 5 awards. The No.5 Award for Energy Efficiency School Building was given to 3 model schools with efficient electricity management. The Green School Award was given to 8 model schools for energy and environment conservation. The Low Carbon School Award was given to 106 schools. The Promoting Low Carbon Community Award was given to 62 model schools that have increased potential in energy management and energy consumption reduction and furthered the activities to students’ families. The Energy Saving Heart Teacher Award was given to 7 teachers to honor their contributions for the Green Learning Room Project with outstanding operation results, and for being the role models on supporting energy and environment conservation for the youth more than 5 years.



          “The recent low carbon community activities in 2018 under the Green Learning Room Project can reduce electricity consumption more than 2.8 gigawatt hours, electricity price around 10 million baht, and carbon dioxide emission at 1.5 million kilograms. After this, the Green Learning Room Project will submit the results of carbon dioxide emission reduction by the awarded schools to Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (Public Organization) in order to request for the certificates on greenhouse gas reduction activities. EGAT hopes that in the future the students and their families will participate in the energy network and will develop their communities to be the low carbon society for further electricity and environment sustainability in the future,” said EGAT Deputy Governor – Strategy.
