MEA wins Energy Support Award from Thailand Energy Awards 2019

Mr. Somkid Jatusripitak, Deputy Prime Minister, on 18 October 2019, presided over the awards presentation ceremony for Thailand Energy Awards 2019, hosted by the Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE), Ministry of Energy. Among the awards, Mr. Somkid presented “Energy Support – Association, Organisation, Agency Award” to the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA).

Mr. Wilas Chaloeysat, MEA Deputy Governor, acted as representative of the organisation to receive the award. He also introduced the Prime Minister and his entourage to MEA EV Application technology at the MEA booth. The ceremony was held at Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre, Bangna, Bangkok. 

The MEA Deputy Governor revealed that MEA is aware that the energy crisis and environmental problems are deteriorating sharply. He is also aware of the advancement of information technology that is adapting rapidly due to the demands and behaviours of energy consumers. 

MEA is a state-owned entity in the energy sector under the Ministry of Interior. As such it aims to promote people to access energy conservation technology which can support daily life. With research and development, it is attempting to push for the first time electric vehicle charging stations for vehicles in 12 spots around metropolitan areas. 

The MEA also hosted an academic event to showcase its potential in energy preservation, the MEA EV Application that can be used to search for charging stations and book one. It also assigns experts to present lectures on various occasions to build trust in electric vehicle innovation. It also builds networks to disseminate knowledge and information concerning alternative energy to the general public. 

All this is reflected in the Energy Mind Award, MEA Energy Saving Building, Young MEA, and MEA’s use of media to educate people in alternative energy. 

MEA is proud to participate in Thailand Energy Awards organised by the Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE), Ministry of Energy. 

The MEA Deputy went on to say that receiving this award is a confirmation of MEA's success as a leader in promoting energy conservation. In the future, MEA will continue to be committed as a government agency that drives modern innovation while focusing on supporting energy conservation projects and developing alternative energy to maximise the benefits to the country.
