The Asia Pacific Energy Research Centre (APERC) has selected Koh Samui as its first island to pioneer modelling a low-carbon lifestyle with the aim of reducing the use of fossil fuels and boosting efficient energy use.

APERC researchers and experts arrive on the island this week to spend the next six months conducting a
study on energy use.


The idea of Koh Samui being suitable for development into a low-carbon society was welcomed by Ministry of
Tourism and Sports.


For the people and businesses of Koh Samui, tax breaks may be considered for electric cars, energy saving equipment, construction of energy-saving buildings and energy-conscious waste management, among others.
