This paper reports on a knowledge management (KM) platform that aims to promote knowledge and the utilization of sustainable energy among Thai communities. The system is based on a web GIS (Geographic Information System) server-side application. Information on sustainable energy resources in the Phitsanulok province, Thailand is made available to the users. The three categories of users are general users, researchers and local government officers (LGA) The information on the local energy resources also helps the LGAs to select the most appropriate location for designing and developing sustainable energy services. In order to assess the effectiveness of the system, the participants asked to answer questionnaires before and after they had accessed the platform. The results of the survey revealed that the KM platform helps the local people to improve their knowledge and utilization of sustainable energy thereby improving their life environment.
