Thailand Power Development Plan 2015-2036

legislation type Executive
Plan
Passed in 2015
The Thailand Power Development Plan 2015 - 2036 defines three major objectives:

  1. Energy Security: managing an increase in power demand. This takes into account fuel diversification as a way of lessening the dependency of one particular energy source.

  2. Economy: maintaining appropriate costs for power generation and implementing energy efficiency measures.

  3. Ecology: reducing impacts on both the environment and society by lessening CO2 intensity during power generation.


The Plan also sets a carbon intensity from power sector targets:




  • Amount of carbon dioxide emission per unit (kgCO2/kWh): 2021 - 0.399; 2026 - 0.370; 2030 - 0.342; and 2036 - 0.319

  • Amount of carbon dioxide emission per annum (thousand tons of CO2): 2021 - 93,689; 2026 - 98,950; 2030 - 99,822; and 2036 - 104,075





To achieve the above targets, the Plan sets target shares of energy consumption for individual energy sources to be reached in the sector:

  • Imported hydro power: 7% (2014), 10-15% (2026), 15-20% (2036)

  • Clean coal including lignite: 20% (2014), 20-25% (2026), 20-25% (2036)

  • Renewable energy including hydro: 8% (2014), 10-20% (2026), 15-20% (2036)

  • Natural gas: 64% (2014), 45-50% (2026), 30-40% (2036)

  • Nuclear: 0% (2014), 0% (2026), 0-5% (2036)

  • Diesel/Fuel: 1% (2014), 0% (2026), 0% (2036)
