For communities to be able to support themselves, PTT promotes the Sufficiency Economy principles and develops livable communities by improving residents’ health and building safety awareness within the community. PTT’s community and society development initiatives include:
Development of Sufficiency Economy District Learning Centers and Community Energy Innovation
PTT encourages communities to become resilient, sustainable and self-sufficient, as defined by the sufficiency economy philosophy. In supporting the development of communities to become energy self-reliance, PTT helps sharing its knowledge and expertise of energy technology with the communities. PTT supported community sustainable development in economic, social, and environmental aspects through energy development, such as community energy training courses, model communities on energy sufficiency, developing Sufficiency Economy District Learning Centers, and encouraging energy self-reliance by working with communities in developing alternative energy sources that are suitable for each local area. In 2016, major projects included:
Community Biogas System from Pig Farming
PTT developed the Community Biogas System from Pig Farming at Tha Manao Sub-district, Chai Badan District, Lopburi Province while engaging with communities through various engagement measures in every process, including community forums, biogas system efficiency analysis, biogas system design and development, community working group establishment, biogas system installation, and Biogas Committee nomination. This project helps 130 households saving costs by substituting biogas for LPG and reducing distinctive smell from pig farming wastewater. Tha Manao Biogas System has been registered as a T-VER project in 2016 with a carbon credit period of 7 years and CO2 capture capacity of 786 tonnes CO2 equivalents per year.
PTT extended the scope of community biogas system to a further two locations; Kham Khaen Sub-district, Manchakhiri District, Khon Khaen Province and San Sai Sub-district, Phrao District, Chiang Mai Province.
Performance
Tha Manao Biogas System, Lopburi Province (2015 – present) The project was registered as a T-VER project in 2016 with carbon credit period of 7 years and CO2 capture capacity of 786 tonnes CO2 equivalents per year
Kham Khaen Biogas System, Khon Khaen Province (2016 - present)
The biogas system comprises of 100 cubic meters biogas tank and 1,000 meters biogas pipeline distribution. The benefits for the community are as follow:
  • Collaborated with Mahasarakham University in constructing the biogas system and assessing its performance.
  • Established the renewable energy learning center in the north-eastern region as part of One Village One Project.
  • Reduces distinctive smell and wastewater from pig farming.
  • Reduces 210 tonnes CO2 equivalents per year.
  • Produces biogas for use in 26 households as substitute for LPG and charcoal and helps the community to save approximately 280,800 baht per year.
  • Earns 35,000 baht per year from selling dried pig manure.
San Sai Biogas System, Chiang Mai Province (2016 - present)
This biogas system from pig farming comprises of 100 cubic meters fixed dome biogas system, 60 cubic meters biogas storage tank, 800 meters biogas pipeline distribution. The benefits for the community are as follow:
  • Collaborated with Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna in studying biogas system efficiency.
  • Produces biogas for 32 households and one temple as a substitute for LPG and charcoal. This project results in the reduction of 15 kilograms of LPG consumption per households, which means saving approximately 161,280 Thai Baht per year.
Community Energy Training Course
The community energy training course promotes integration of the Sufficiency Economy Policy into community energy management approaches, and encourages communities to becoming energy self-reliance. To achieve that, PTT organized the 3rd Community Energy Training course for 68 community leaders. Apart from that, the participants from the 1st and 2nd Training Course in 2015 have developed systematic energy management into practices using local resources as an energy source. For example, the community in Bhiman Sub-district, Na Kae District, Nakhon Phanom Province extracted fuel oil from gurjan tree, as a substitute for fuel oil, and used gurjan oil for agricultural machineries and oil lamps. Another project promotes solar energy in Khao Kok Sub-district, Prakhon Chai District, Buri Ram Province. The solar energy from this system was used for water pumps, resulting in savings of 7,200 Thai Baht per year. This community also added value to its agricultural waste, cassava roots and iron wood, by making charcoal from those waste products. The charcoal was used as an alternative energy source.

Livable City Project
PTT has engaged with the communities and all relevant parties through forums, working group meetings, sub-group meetings, and workshops to gather opinions from all stakeholders, following the CD-CR Guidebook, for the implementation of the Livable City Project. The objective of the project is to promote the development of the communities’ livelihood surrounding PTT’s operational areas in social, economic, health and environmental aspects. In 2016, PTT established community development activities in different areas, such as:
  • Songkhla Petroleum Terminal neighbourhood: Singhanakorn District is shaped to become a historical tourist attraction and a clean town with job opportunities. “Seaside Working Street” activity is implemented where communities sell their local products, food and handicrafts. There were 200 merchants joining this street market and generated approximately 100,000 Thai Baht in total for each event
  • Gas Transmission Operation Center 4 neighborhood: In response to the lack of health knowledge and access to health care services, PTT launched Health Promotion Project for Baan Kam Yai Pan Nam Chai Community, Muang Waan Sub-district, Khon Kaen Province for 250 households
