Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a public enterprise owned by the German Federal Government. German development cooperation in Thailand has been operating through GIZ since 1956 when Germany and Thailand signed the Agreement on Development Economic Cooperation. With time, GIZ activity have evolved towards technical cooperation in particular in the field of environment and energy.
The Programme “Clean, Affordable, and Secure Energy for Southeast Asia” or CASE is an international programme funded by German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and coordinated by GIZ Thailand. CASE aims to drive change in the power sector in South East Asia (SEA) towards increased ambitions with regards to climate change. It focuses on the four main SEA countries in terms of energy demand – Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam – and also foresees regional interventions. Being a Consortium composed of a wide range of international and national organizations, CASE will develop and propose evidence-based solutions to the energy challenges met by decision makers and build societal support around those solutions. A joint fact-finding research approach will be applied, involving expert analysis and dialogue in key energy gaps. CASE will also support coordination in the SEA power sector, provides technical and policy support and facilitate dialogue around a new energy vision. Through these activities, CASE will directly contribute to the transition of the power sector towards an innovative, economically successful and environmentally friendly model for SEA.
Using different methodologies (TA, research, communication etc.) and approaches, the work of CASE will be challenging, exciting and at the heart of one of the most fundamental challenges of our time, the transition of the energy system in SEA one of the fastest developing economic areas in the world towards a system in line with the global objective of the Paris Agreement. It was designed to be an essential part of a bigger support effort and will be implemented along with a number of other programmes as part of the Energy Transition Partnership a multidonors approach aiming at scaling and at improving coordination efforts in the region.
The core implementation of CASE will be undertaken at the country level and will be based on a strong partnership and cooperation between a national GIZ team and local think tank / expert organizations specialized in energy matters. GIZ Thailand will also be responsible for the coordination and management of the whole Programme at the regional level (serving as Secretariat of the Consortium) and is currently looking for an advisor to contribute to the implementation of the CASE programme as part of the GIZ team, in particular to support the Secretariat’s work.
