The application of wood crate waste management technology into renewable energy to generate electricity has low electricity production cost, provides social benefits, and is environmentally friendly. The objective of this research is to study (1) the current condition of wood crate waste management as renewable energy to generate electricity, and (2) the innovation that affects the success of wood crate waste management into renewable energy to generate electricity. It is the mixed research using quantitative and qualitative research. The quantitative research was done by surveying and analyzing the composition structural equation model with 6 studied variables. The sample group was 400 people in the Eastern Economic Corridor with the criteria of 20 times the observed variable. The qualitative sample consisted of 49 wood traders and 40 community leaders. The data was collected through questionnaires and interviews to be analyzed by descriptive statistics and composition structural equation model analysis. The research results revealed that 1) the current condition of wood crate waste management into renewable energy to generate electricity is entirely successful resulting in the reducing amount of crate waste in the area by adopting modern technology to generate electricity that provides high energy. The community participates in reducing the use of natural resources and conserving the environment. They altogether sort the waste and wood chips to sell. The community has increased income. 2) The innovation affects the success of wood crate waste management into renewable energy to generate electricity. The studied variables were found to have positive relationship on the management of crate waste into renewable energy to generate electricity. These were consistent with the empirical data at a good level. The variable with the most direct influence was the knowledge factor in crate waste management of the community followed by the innovation factor in the development of community crate waste management system and the factor of parties in the wood crate waste management of the community, respectively. The factor with indirect influence was the participation in wood crate waste management of the community.
