Thailand boosts RE goal to 13.9GW

Thailand has sharply raised its target for clean power generation under new plans outlined by the nation’s government this week.

Thailand now aims to have 13.9GW of renewable and other clean-energy sources in place by 2021, up from the previous goal of 9.2GW, reports The Nation.

The country’s Energy Ministry also introduced a feed-in tariff for rooftop solar deployments.

The plan sees a bigger contribution from solar and bioenergy sources than previously expected, but a reduced role for hydropower, the report adds.
