Wind power in Thailand

Wind power in Thailand amounts to an installed production capacity of 223 MW as of the end of 2013.[1] 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.

Thailand's natural gas reserves are set to run out in 2021, and Thailand began importing expensive liquefied natural gas in 2011. These factors have led to increased demand for renewable energy, and Thailand's Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP) in 2011 called for 25% of its energy to come from renewable sources by 2021. The AEDP increased the 2021 target for wind capacity from 800 MW to 1,200 MW. By June 2012, projects totaling over 1,600 MW had been proposed.[2]

Completed

  • Huang Boy Wind Farm, 207 MW, 90 turbines of 2.3MW.[3]
