ABSTRACT

 

This study is aimed at developing indicators of community energy management based on the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy. The primary data were obtained by in-depth interviewing the leaders of the communities and by conducting a questionnaire and a survey of the communities that manage their self-support energy based on the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy. The indicators of community energy management were developed on the basis of IPO-I (Input Process Output) theory, including the assessment of the impact. The developing community energy management indicators, 61 in total, include 23 indicators for assessing ten sub-aspects of the Input, the 17 indicators for assessing four sub-aspects of the Process and 11 indicators for assessing seven sub-aspects of the Output. In addition, 10 indicators for assessing five sub-aspects of the Impact were developed. These sixty-one indicators were linked to the indicators of the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy. The developed indicators were tested with eight model communities.
