Renewable energy in Thailand

Renewable energy in Thailand is a sector, developing in Thailand. With its current rate of carbon emissions, Thailand must follow suit from its neighbors by cutting emissions down through the use of renewable energy. Several policies, such as the Eleventh Plan, set goals for renewable energy, such as biofuel implementation, in order to reduce the reliance of nonrenewable energy. For example, the use of biofuel can provide many benefits, such as reducing carbon emissions and reducing reliance on imported fuel; some of the major renewable energy sources would be wind power, solar power, biofuel. Total Renewable Energy Installed Capacity Solar power in Thailand has been expanding since in 2011. Thailand was targeted to reach 55 MW by 2011. Wind power in Thailand amounts to an installed production capacity of 223 MW as of the end of 2013. Installed capacity was 112 MW by the end of 2012, with 111 MW added in 2013; this ranks Thailand 34th in the world by installed capacity.
