Gas still the dominant force in Thailand’s power sector
Thailand’s gas demand is primarily driven by the power sector, making up around 60% of power generation. While there have been efforts to diversify Thailand's energy mix, gas is now making a comeback.
The latest power development plan, released at the end of last year, confirmed this: gas-fired power will increase from 37% of the power mix by 2036 to 53% by 2037.

Imported LNG will still have a role to play in meeting demand. Watch the video to understand how this could affect power costs.
