Moreover, CEERD, through its various projects, has been in direct contact with energy and environment planning agencies, academic and research institutes in about 20 Asia-Pacific countries.
Private sector cooperation
As a natural evolution of the Centre, CEERD is carrying out more and more projects with the private sector in fields relating to energy and environment. This diversification has been made possible due to its skilled staff, who has accumulated a long experience in energy conservation, energy technologies, environmental impacts of electricity generation, GHG emissions, etc., and CEERD’s extensive network of experts in many different fields.
CEERD’s extensive knowledge of the region’s energy and environment markets has enabled it to conduct market surveys for energy and environment technologies. In connection with environmental protection, CEERD is also being involved in environmental audit, environmental engineering consulting, as well as in environmental norms and standards.
For example, CEERD has continuously cooperated with Energy, Economy, and Environment Consultants Co. Ltd. (EEEC) and Informatics Management Associates Co. Ltd. (IMA), both registered private consultancy firms in Thailand, in undertaking projects with the private sector and for specialized technical services like web design, etc.
International student internships
CEERD conducts applied and finalized research in partnership with European and Asian universities and research centres in the framework of student apprenticeship or internship. CEERD receives several masteral students for short periods (1 to 6 months).
