Enlit Asia hosted a series of webinars, sponsored by EGAT, on Powering Thailand’s Energy Transition: “How the Energy Transition will Support National Energy Security”.
Across 4 live episodes, we can hear the EGAT Governor outline the strategic direction EGAT will take and their investment priorities in the short- to medium-term. The series examines the new businesses EGAT is seeking to develop by exploiting the opening of Thailand’s LNG market, how expertise in providing flexibility in both generation and across the grid is needed to support RE growth, and understand how EGAT seeks to support Thailand’s ambition of becoming Southeast Asia's power-trading middleman.
Randi Kristansen, IEA Economics and Financial Analyst - Clean Electricity, spoke in Episode 4 “Thailand: Gateway to the ASEAN Power Market” (17 December). The panel of experts focused on how the region’s infrastructure can be developed to enable the ASEAN Power Grid vision. The panel also discussed how ASEAN should develop a power trading market whilst also sharing insights into various models of multilateral power trade and the mechanisms and platforms that exist to further enable a regional power market.
The IEA's participation in this event was made possible through the Clean Energy Transitions in Emerging Economies programme, which received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 952363
