dc.description.abstractThis research explores the important factors affecting the effectiveness and the effectiveness of small biomass power plants all over Thailand. The objectives of the study include 1) to study and establish a model of the relationship between the factors that influence the effectiveness and the effectiveness of small biomass power plants. 2) to test and analyze the relationships between key factors affecting the effectiveness and effectiveness of small biomass power plants. This study uses the Mixed Method with Qualitative and Quantitative Method by the Sequential Mixed Method Designed as the Exploratory Design. This method is well known as The Sequential Exploratory Mixed Method. The qualitative research data, collected by in-depth interviews of experts of small biomass power plants from both government and private sectors as well as focus groups with the community surrounding the plants and field studies. The qualitative research results of the important factors affecting the effectiveness of small biomass power plants consist of Biomass fuels, Technology of producing the electricity, the knowledge, skills, and abilities of employees, The government subsidy, Location of power plant, The community acceptance, The initial project design, The management of biomass power plant, Biomass fuel management, The dependence on the biomass fuel from outside, Regulations and laws, The organizational culture, The executive vision, The potential of the grid lines, The accessory of connecting the electricity, The distance of biomass sources, Knowledge development, The supply chain management, The purchase agreement, The local politics and crude oil prices.th
dc.description.abstractThe effectiveness of small biomass power plant are 1) The financial effectiveness 2) The environmental effectiveness and 3) The community effectiveness. The research uses all important issues from qualitative research to design the instrument of the quantitative research. The questionnaires are the instruments for collecting the data from the small biomass power plants all over Thailand, totaling 343 power plants. 211 (61.51%) returned completed questionnaires. The researcher analyzed the data by using the Exploratory Factor Analysis to classify all variables from a large number of variables resulting from qualitative research to group and to create new variables applicable to the conceptual frameworks and hypotheses of the quantitative research. The results of Exploratory Factor Analysis are the 8 factors of the important factors affecting the effectiveness of small biomass power plants as the following 1) The power network and the transmission lines 2) The skills and capabilities of employees 3) Regulations and laws 4) The community acceptance 5) The dependence on the biomass fuel resources 6) The values of working 7) The location of the power plants 8) The supply chain management. The effectiveness of small biomass power plants are 1) The financial effectiveness 2) The environmental effectiveness and 3) The community effectiveness. The researcher used all 11 latent variables to create the model of the relationship between the factors that influence the effectiveness and effectiveness of small biomass power plants and analyze the model with the Structured Equation Model Statistical method. The statistical results found that the model of the relationship between the factors that influence the effectiveness and effectiveness of small biomass power plants is a very good fit. The results of the hypothesis testing are that the power network and the transmission lines, the skills and capabilities of employees, the dependence of the biomass fuel resources and the supply chain management are positively correlated with the financial effectiveness of small biomass power plants. The regulations and laws, the dependence of the biomass fuel resources, the location of the power plants and the supply chain management are likely to positively correlate with the environmental effectiveness of small biomass power plants. The community acceptance, the dependence of the biomass fuel resources, the values of work, and the supply chain management are likely to positively correlate with the community effectiveness of small biomass power plants.th
