“These technologies will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the context of Thailand that still depends on fossil fuels for electricity generation to maintain energy security and meet the national power demand,” the company said.

EGAT implements strategies to support Thailand’s commitment to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and net-zero emissions by 2065 through increasing the renewable energy share in the generation mix and the development of new technologies to so support the generation, amongst others.
