Thailand set to add 56GW of power capacity by 2037

This will bring its total capacity to 77GW.

Thailand has approved a national energy plan that will add 56GW of new capacity by 2037 to reach a total capacity of 77GW, according to a report by Reuters.

Thailand currently has a power generation capacity of 40GW, with 20GW to go offline over time.

By 2037, 53% of total capacity would be from natural gas, 20% from renewable sources, 12% from coal, and the remainder from other sources including imports.

The previous plan from 2015 estimated natural gas would make up 40% of total Thai energy by 2036, and coal up to 25%.
