CO2 Emissions+80,000 tCO2/year
Thailand is one of the largest consumers of energy in Southeast Asia and the second largest importer of oil in the region, with fossil fuels currently meeting about 80% of total energy demand.
Solar renewable energy is poised to play a crucial role in Thailand’s energy transition. This project groups 10 solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in Kanchanaburi and Suphanburi provinces in central Thailand. Solar PV systems are a state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly technology with a capacity of about 10 MW per system.
This project has the potential to reduce dependence on imported energy and drive national and regional economic growth. In addition, the project improves local infrastructure and provides real job opportunities for local skilled and unskilled workers.
