A Case Study of Success in Phasing out Policy of Instantaneous Water Heater in Australia and Feasibility in Thailand

Suttinee Jingjit and Kua-anan Techato
Abstract—This paper discusses the original, successful and effect of phasing out policy of instantaneous water heater in Australia. This can be applied for Thailand in order to phase out instantaneous water heater as a milestone. Hence, this work focuses on shifting from instantaneous water heater to heat pump and solar water heater. Thailand is suitable for these technologies because the high level of solar radiation is free from the sun. Many large buildings normally use heat pump but not popular in household. The important factors for consumers in Thailand are education and realization of energy saving and global warming issue. The knowledge of technician and consultant have to be developed for the new technologies. Phasing out policy of instantaneous water heater can be done under the supporting of Thai government, especially in term of subsidy for the high investment cost.

Index Terms—Phasing out policy, instantaneous water heater, Energy saving, Conservative energy.
