This article focuses on policy environment, policy problems, agenda determining, alternative analysis and decision making policy, which will be pursued through various institutions responsible for each related policy in order to form alternative energy policy in accordance with military security in Thailand.
The findings of this article can be concluded that the government must pay special attention on drawing up guidelines regarding an alternative to fossil fuel for military security both at present and in the future. These guidelines could be systematically formed through the integration of public sectors, private sectors and civil sectors for the purpose of actual implementation.
