Renewable Energy Industry Club The Federation of Thai Industries The Renewable Energy Industry Club consists of 7 business types related to the renewable energy for commercial purposes. There are more than 50 members and 20 advisors from both Thai and international universities and other organizations which are responsible for renewable energy.
The 7 types of renewable energy for commercial purposes Solar CellWindBioMass Biodiesel EthanolBioGas Waste to Energy
Solar Cell Energy The manufacturers in Thailand have invested in the solar cell productions more than 6 billion baht which propose to produce both Solar Module Fabrication and Solar Cell Manufacture. However, the market of the solar cell is foreign market due to the lack of government policy support for local market.
Wind Turbine Energy Commercial low-speed wind turbines ( 2.5-3.0 m./sec.) of 100- 5,000 watt capacity have been produced in Thailand. Its capacity will be developed to 50,000 watt soon. For the high capacity wind turbine such as the project of Ministry of Energy, which has been installed in the southern, is imported from other country. This business still has few investors.
Bio Mass Energy There are a lot of biomass plants established and can produce electricity by cogeneration system which is more popularly used in Thailand than other technologies. Interesting technology for biomass such as “pyrolysis gasification” is now at the stage of research and development in Thailand.
MSW: Waste to Energy Municipal Solid Waste There are 14-15 million tons per annum of MSW which are interested by investors and technology providers. However, most of those technologies have not efficiently solved Thai MSW problem. Thailand is expecting the investors who can provide effective waste management solutions appropriate to Thai situations.
Waste Plastic to Oil Solution
Bio-Gas There are more than 10 entrepreneurs who can design and fabricate biogas plants and more than 500 factories (small, medium and large) operate biogas plants throughout Thailand. Most of the biogas plants can run successfully by using waste from tapioca starch process, pig farm and food factory. In addition, the biogas business suits for BOT (Built Operation Transfer) investment because it is low investment and return in a short period.
Thailand Ethanol Production Potential 49 Plants have been registered to the Ministry of Industries. Total rated capacity of 12.5 M-liters per day. Around 50% automotive Benzene fuel replacement. At present, only 11 plants are in operation. Total production capacity is 1.58 M-liters per day. However, actual consumption is at 0.8 M-liters per day Over supply of 0.6-0.8 M-liters per day.
Bio-diesel In May 2008, the industrial bio-diesel production is about 1.26 M-liters/day for B2 and B5 blend accordingly. At community level, bio-diesel productions are mostly produced from used cooking oil. Such bio-diesel are being used only in the community. To solve the problem of bio-diesel production in long term, there should be promotion on the plantation of non- edible) crop as raw material to produce bio-diesel in non-existing agricultural area.
