Thailand is one of the largest energy consumers in Southeast Asia and the second largest oil importer in the region, with fossil fuels currently accounting for around 80% of total energy demand. The government aims to tackle this dependence on fossil fuels and lead the way in the use of renewable energy in Southeast Asia.
Solar is poised to play a crucial role in Thailand’s future energy transition. The Siam Solar Energy project bundles 10 plants of solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants across the Kanchanaburi and Suphanburi provinces in Thailand’s agricultural center. The solar PV systems are a cutting-edge, environmentally sound technology with a capacity of 10.5 MW per plant, that deliver the generated electricity to the grid.
This project reduces Thailand’s reliance on imported energy and drives further economic growth in the country and in the region. Aside from meeting the energy demand for people in central Thailand, the project improves local infrastructure and provides employment opportunities to skilled and unskilled workers from communities within the project area in manufacturing, installation, operation, and maintenance of equipment.
