In this demonstration operation, the OPENVQ system was linked to SCADA used to monitor and control the power system in the regional control center operated by EGAT in northeastern Thailand. And we already confirmed that the loss of power in the transmission network had been curbed and approximately 1,000 tons of CO2 emissions had been reduced by operating those advanced and efficient power systems in the period from February 21st through March 10th. Future plans include registration of the project with the joint committee of the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM), and issuance of CO2 credits through TPE (third party entity) verification based on the results to be monitored until December 2023.

On April 26th, an opening ceremony was held at the head office of EGAT in Nonthaburi attended by all the parties concerned from both countries to celebrate the start of the demonstration operations.
