Securing Thailand’s energy future
06 Aug 2019

Bangkok, Thailand – With Thailand’s rapidly developing economy and growing population, Thailand already leads South-East Asia in renewable energy installed capacity, and with the Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP) has recently revising its renewable energy target to 30% renewables in the energy mix by 2036. This would represent 15-20% of total power consumption.


Running parallel to the renewable initiative is The Smart Grid initiative which is part of the Ministry of Energy’s Master Plan. This plan maps out a framework that focuses on the security of energy supply, grid resiliency, and energy efficiency, and works in tandem with Thailand 4.0 Initiative, of which Smart Energy and Environment is a key pillar. It is estimated that state-owned utilities will spend Bt200 Billion on implementing smart grid projects between now and 2036.


To showcase possibilities and opportunities in this sector, The Future Energy Show Thailand, will gather the energy eco-system in Thailand and Southeast Asia to discuss industry strategies, trends, and key innovation to help local energy stakeholders further drive Thailand’s renewable energy development and replicate industry best practices.


The show will take place on 27-28 November 2019, at the Impact Convention Center and will facilitate eight free-to-attend conferences featuring high-caliber speakers to give their insights on the latest technology in solar, storage, wind, smart grids, power generation, transmission and distribution and e-mobility.
