The launch of EnergyDecentral Asia and Systems & Components Asia will take place together with the second edition of AGRITECHNICA ASIA in Bangkok this year from August 22 – 24. Systems & Components Asia is the international B2B platform highlighting the latest developments in the sectors of transmissions, engines and hydraulics for the Off-Highway sector with international professional visitors from management, R&D, procurement, research and academia. EnergyDecentral Asia is the international trade fair for bioenergy and decentralized energy supply, which uses the synergies between the agricultural and bioenergy sectors.
EnergyDecentral Asia shows the entire range of technological developments in the field of bioenergy, regenerative energy and technology covering all aspects of decentralized energy supply. As a result, the focus at the EnergyDecentral Asia is not only on energy production, but also on system efficiency and the storage and distribution of the energy produced. The trade show focuses on innovative technology, from substrate handling to power generation to networking and control, storage and distribution of energy.
EnergyDecentral around the world
The concept behind “EnergyDecentral” has proven to be a success. Founded in 2006 in Germany, EnergyDecentral is now taking place in eight countries, including Thailand – India, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Great Britain and Germany. EnergyDecentral will take place together with EuroTier, the world’s leading trade show for animal husbandry, this November from the 13th to the 16th in Hanover.
Important topics that will be touched at EnergyDecentral Asia include biogas and biofuels, renewable energy, decentralized energy technology, ventilation, waste air and exhaust gas purification, supply and disposal systems, energy distribution and transport and storage.
In Southeast Asian countries, there is an immense bioenergy potential due to the plentiful supply of diverse forms of biomass wastes such as agricultural residues, woody biomass and animal wastes. Especially in Thailand, energy consumption has risen sharply over the past decade, which has led to respective government programs to promote the use of renewable energy. This provides interesting business opportunities for international companies active in the bioenergy sector.
Thailand is the second largest economy in Southeast Asia with a population of 69 million people and a strategic location in the ASEAN region. Currently, more than half of Thailand’s energy supply depends on foreign imports. To meet its growing energy demand in a more sustainable way and to increase its energy security, the Thai government is promoting the use of domestic renewable energy. As stated in the Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP), renewable energy should reach a share of 25% in total energy consumption by 2021.
According to AEDP and Business Monitor International, bioenergy is considered to be the most important form of alternative energy in the coming years. The country has a fairly large biomass resource base generated each year that could be utilized for energy purposes, such as rice, sugarcane, rubber sheets, palm oil and cassava. Several studies have predicted that biomass wastes can cover up to 15 % of the energy demand in Thailand. These estimations only include wastes from agricultural activities and large scale agricultural processing of crops such as palm oil mills, not the biomass wastes from SMEs. This means that the possible potential is greater than ever before.
