Alternative Energy Development Plan 2015-2036

Executive
Plan
Passed in 2015
The Alternative Energy Development plan (AEDP), developed by the Ministry of Energy has developed the Thailand Integrated Energy Blueprint (TIEB) focuses on three key areas:

  1. Energy security - in relation to energy supply

  2. Economy - regards to controlling energy and fuel costs while promoting efficiency

  3. Ecology - increasing domestic renewable energy production to reduce impact on environment


The AEDP defines overall goals for the increase of renewable energy from the current 7,300 MW to almost 20,000 MW by 2036, and to achieve 20 % of net national electrical energy demand being supplied by renewable energy sources by 2036.
The following capacities are envisaged for the respective sectors:

  • Waste-to-energy: 550 MW (currently approx. 65 MW)

  • Biomass: 5,570 MW (currently approx. 2,500 MW)

  • Biogas from waste /wastewater: 600 MW (currently approx. 300 MW)

  • Biogas from plants: 680 MW

  • Wind energy: 3,002 MW (currently approx. 225 MW)

  • Solar energy: 6,000 MW (currently 1,300 MW)

  • Hydropower (small): 376 MW (currently 142 MW)

  • Hydropower (large): unchanged (currently approx. 3,000 MW)
