The Political Economy of Thailand’s Renewable Energy Ambitions

The Political Economy of Thailand’s Renewable Energy Ambitions

In 2010, Thailand generated 3,426 GWh of electricity from renewable energy sources such as solar power. The entire system used 164,829 GWh that year, so about 2 percent of the total came from renewable sources. By comparison, coal and natural gas combined to generate 148,202 GWh, or 90 percent of the country’s electricity supply. Like many emerging markets in Southeast Asia, the economy of Thailand has been growing rapidly and driving ever-greater demand for electricity. If a switch to more sustainable energy is not made in a timely fashion, the country risks getting locked into a high-carbon model of economic development.
