Powering a sustainable energy future for Southeast Asia
Thailand is one of the largest energy consumers in Southeast Asia and the region's second largest oil importer, with fossil fuels currently meeting around 80% of total energy demand. The Thai Government is looking to tackle national dependence on fossil fuels and help pioneer Southeast Asia's renewable energy sector.

Solar is poised to play a crucial role in Thailand’s clean energy transition. The Siam Solar Energy 1 project bundles 10 solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants across Kanchanaburi and Suphanburi Provinces in central Thailand. The solar PV systems are a cutting-edge, environmentally-sound technology with a capacity of approximately 10 MW per plant, and deliver generated electricity to the grid.
This bundled project reduces Thailand’s reliance on imported energy and drives both national and regional economic growth. Aside from meeting the energy demands of regional Thai communities, the project improves local infrastructure and provides employment opportunities for local skilled and unskilled workers in manufacturing, installation, operation and maintenance of equipment.
