Abstract: Thailand ratified the Kyoto Protocol in August 2002 but holds no legally binding target to reduce or limit its GHG emissions during the first commitment period. As a non-Annex I country, Thailand, however, can involve itself in the carbon trading market through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). This research evaluates the carbon footprints and related costs of alternative technologies in the electricity generation sector (i.e. natural gas, solar energy, and nuclear power) and transportation sector (i.e. bioethanol) as potential clean energy sources. The carbon footprint and cost of each alternative technology were then compared with those of the status quo to identify the pros and cons of each technology option. The resulting data can be used by government officials and policy makers to make informed decisions on the future implementation of CDM technology options.
