Low Carbon Technology


RRC.AP is focused in the transfer and diffusion of low carbon technologies to contribute in the reduction of GHG emissions and support the achievement of nationally determined contributions (NDCs) among countries in the Asia and the Pacific. Initial assessments included the needs assessment and technology mapping for Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Our work in Low Carbon Technologies


  • International Evaluation of Low Carbon Technology​ and Related Research and Development


  • Low-Carbon Technology Assessment Consultation Workshop – Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam



International evaluation of Low Carbon Technologies and related Research & Development

July 2015 – February 2016

RRC.AP conducted a Low Carbon Technology Assessment in Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam from July 2015 to February 2016 with funding from the Ministry of Environment, Japan. The technology assessment involved the evaluation of eight specific technologies namely once-through boiler, steam management system, industrial heat pump, air compressor, biomass micro cogeneration, solar photovoltaic, waste heat recover, and high efferent LED. The technology assessment process employed a quantitative SWOT analysis on both supply and demand side that were conducted through and based on stakeholder consultation.

The primary goal of the technology assessment is to promote the transfer and application of low carbon technologies in the abovementioned countries and in turn, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and sustainable development.

Low-Carbon Technology Assessment Consultation Workshop

December 2015 – January 2016

Integral to the international evaluation of low carbon technologies, a number of country missions were carried out to map out the technology needs of Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam​.  The stakeholder consultation workshop for the low carbon technology assessment had 3 main objectives. First, to present the findings of an earlier consultation process; second, to exchange views and experiences of stakeholders on the challenges and opportunities on select technologies for each country; and lastly, to make a consensus-based decision on the potential of low carbon technologies in the particular countries. All workshops were attended by a well mix of stakeholders – representatives from government agencies, private secotrs, professional associations, NGOs and regional agencies.​

The stakeholder consultation in focused on Oil-free Air Compressor and LED technologies in Vietnam, Industrial Heat pump, Oil-free Air compressor and Micro Cogeneration technologies for Thailand, and lastly, Solar Photovoltaic and Waste Heat recovery systems for Indonesia. ​
