Thailand’s power generation increased to 17.7TWh in August, up 4% m-o-m and up 2.5% y-o-y. This is mostly due to rise in gas-fired generation to 10.9TWh, up 11.6% m-o-m and up 6.4% y-o-y. On the other hand, coal-fired generation declined to 3.1TWh, down 2.5% m-o-m and down 6.7% y-o-y.

Thailand’s renewable generation totalled 1.5TWh in August, down 3.7% m-o-m but still were 15.6% higher y-o-y. This includes power generation from wind and solar, which increased to 1.2TWh, up 0.3% m-o-m and up 20.6% y-o-y. On the other hand, hydro generation decreased to 0.3TWh, down 17.2% m-o-m and down 1.3% y-o-y.

Thailand produced 135.1TWh of electricity over the first 8 months of the year, up 0.5% y-o-y. Coal-fired generation increased to 24.8TWh, up 0.2% y-o-y. On the other hand gas-fired generation declined to 80.9TWh, down 5.4% y-o-y.

Thailand’s renewable generation increased to 13.2TWh, up 21.4% y-o-y. Generation from wind and solar increased to 10TWh, up 17.8% y-o-y; while hydro generation increased to 3.2TWh, up 34.2% y-o-y.
