SENT - Sustainable Energy Network for Thailand

SENT is a forum for non-governmental, non-profit organisations working related to energy issues. It was initiated in January, 1999 with the aims of providing sustainable energy solutions for the Thai society and of strengthening the capability of member organisations. There are 11 member organisations with different experiences in promoting sustainable energy. Some organisations have more academic experience, while others have done more promotion of renewable energy with local communities. Some members have helped to mobilise local people in protesting against conflicting energy projects.

The activities of SENT range from monthly network meetings to energy planning, workshops, and conferences. SENT has devoted considerable attention to scenario analysis to plan for the possibilities and the impacts of sustainable energy development for a sustainable future. SENT already organised the study and the seminar on ‘Sustainable Energy Alternatives to the 1,400 MW Coal-fired Power Plant under Construction in Prachuab Khiri Khan Province Thailand’. Moreover, SENT has developed a homepage to stimulate information exchange within and outside the network. SENT will continue working on capacity-building for NGOs in sustainable energy development at national and regional levels.
