Thailand s Strategies to Enhance Energy Security Efficient supply management of conventional fuel –Natural Gas Supply Management –Oil Supply Management –Power Supply Management to diversify energy types and supply sources –Fuel diversification in power generation Promotion of Alternative/Renewable Energy Energy efficiency improvement Consideration on Nuclear Energy
Natural Gas Supply Management Natural Gas Demand –In Thailand, NG utilization is promoted, particularly in power generation and transport sectors, to replace petroleum products such as fuel oil, diesel and gasoline. –Since the world oil prices have increased during recent years, more industries have switched to use NG instead of oil. –Based on PDP 2007, NG demand during is projected to increase by an average of 6% per year for power generation. –If included industry and transport demand, NG demand will grow at an average of 10% per year.
Natural Gas Supply Management Natural Gas Supply –Total supply of NG (Jul 2009) was 3,670 million cubic feet per day (MMSCFD), 1.6% increase from the same period in ,944 MMSCFD (80%) produced in Thailand. 727 MMSCFD (20%) imported from Myanmar. –It is expected that NG production will increase to about 5,400 MMSCFD in 2012 and about 7,440 MMSCFD in –Support PTTEP to be the arm of the government in petroleum resource development, particularly at the international level. –Encourage Thai energy operators to joint venture in energy projects overseas.
Oil Supply Management Oil demand is projected to increase at an average growth rate of 2.83% during Oil remains to be the major fuel of the country in spite of promotion of energy conservation and greater use of NG. Oil remains the major fuel in the transport sector.

Oil Supply Management
At present, about 80% of crude oil import is from the Middle East. As Thailand does not have much potential for new crude oil resources, to meet the increasing demand in the future, we have to: Expand full trading activities with global network, by: Building purchasing power by alliance among buyers Increase supply sources/markets Accelerate alternative energy development, e.g. NG and biofuels, to reduce oil consumption. Encourage Thai operators to invest or joint venture in energy project development overseas, e.g. Oman, Iran. Oil Supply Management
Power Supply Management Review the Power Development Plan (PDP) every 6 months to be in line with the changing demand situation Maintain the reserve margin to be no less than 15% Diversify fuel types in power generation: Give importance to SPPs and VSPPs using renewable energy as fuel Study the feasibility of nuclear power generation. Promote Clean Coal Technology for coal-fired power generation International cooperation in power development projects: Power purchase from LPDR, Myanmar, China, Cambodia and Malaysia

Renewable Energy Development Plan
Promotion of Energy Efficiency Improvement Promotion of Energy Efficiency Improvement Promote power & cool-water generation using Distributed-Generation (DG) system in large department stores Promote Energy Services Company (ESCO) business Provide revolving funds/tax incentives/investment promotion via BOI privileges Logistic System Improve & expand public transport systems/promote rail & waterway transport modes Promote energy-saving vehicles Set Energy Saving Target at 10.8% in 2011 Public Awareness Campaigns on energy saving Speed up energy efficiency labeling Establish Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS): air-conditioners, refrigerators, ballast, fluorescent lamps and compact fluorescent lamps Building code & building material standards Unified Thai Power to Reduce Energy Use
1.Energy Security At present, Thailand uses natural gas from the Gulf of Thailand and import from Myanmar for power generation, accounting for a share of almost 70%. However, the R/P of domestic natural gas reserves is rather low (~ 30 years), which is considered a high risk in terms of energy supply. 2.Concern over Global Warming and Climate Change For an NPP, no GHG emission from the power generation process. 3.Energy Price Stability & Competitiveness in the Long Run Nuclear power is a fuel option for large-scale power generation, with low generation cost that can be competitive with other types of power plants. Consideration on Nuclear Power:
NPIEP Milestones for Nuclear Power Program Implementation
Intensify Energy Development for Greater Self-reliance Set the Policy on Alternative Energy as a National Agenda Supervise & Maintain Energy Prices at appropriate, stable & affordable levels Promote Serious and Continuous Energy Conservation and Efficiency Promote Energy Production & Consumption concurrently with Environmental Conservation 4.Revise of the obstructive legislation. Challenges and Success Factors 1.Subject RE as a National Agenda. 5.Fully allocate the budget for research, development, demonstration, dissemination and public relation of RE. 3.Government provides infrastructure for the RE expansion. 2.Government continuously and strongly support RE, especially, Incentive of BOI, ESCO Fund, Revolving Fund and adder cost. 6.Accessibility of RE data, e.g. Potential and raw material management. 7.RE technology standards.
