An Industry Perspective on Strengthening Onshore Wind Development in Thailand 2019


Thailand, the region’s second-largest economy, reflects this scenario: Its generation mix (in GWh) in 2018 was highly dominated by natural gas (54.4%), followed by coal (16.8%) and non-hydro renewable energy (12.7%), the majority of which is biomass (8.2%), according to the Ministry of Energy (MOE). Wind and solar account for only 2.9 percent of total power generation.

The GWEC South East Asia Task Force and ThaiWEA published this position paper as a guiding document for the industry, with the aim of providing a course of action to grow the onshore wind sector in Thailand.
