BACKGROUND

Thailand's path to energy transformation offers significant opportunities for U.S. energy solution providers. Thailand proposes to achieve carbon neutrality by 2065-2070 under a new energy plan that could see renewable energy account for a 50% share of its new power generation.

Thailand’s newly-approved National Energy Plan 2022 supports the country’s move to green and clean energy while increasing energy generation capacity to support growing demand. This could lead to $4.2 billion in investment in the sector.

Thailand’s transition will involve retiring inefficient coal-fired power plants, digitalization of power plants, decentralization of power supply, and deregulation to support third-party access to gas and electricity markets. To reduce emissions, Thailand plans to increase green generation. To better manage the integration of more renewables into its power grid, EGAT is focused on strengthening its power transmission infrastructure. Other areas of focus include battery energy storage system technologies, pumped storage, microgrids, and digital and cyber security technologies
