Report summary

In 2015, Thailand introduced a set of long-term energy plans, collectively known as Thailand Integrated Energy Blueprint. This is the first coordinated energy plan across different government agencies, PTT and EGAT. The focus is to develop a consistent set of strategies for Thailand's future energy needs. Target goals from the Energy Efficiency Plan and Alternative Energy Development Plan are integrated as inputs to the Power Development Plan (PDP) prepared by EGAT. Key messages: EGAT to undertake direct LNG procurement Extensions to expiring SPP gas-cogeneration contracts Solar growth continues despite changes in tariff policy Thai companies seek overseas expansions
