Thailand’s power generation increased to 101.4TWh in H118, up 1% y-o-y

Thailand’s power generation reached 17.6TWh in June, down 2% m-o-m but still was 2.1% higher y-o-y. The fall is mostly due to erosion in thermal power generation. Coal-fired generation fell to 3.2TWh, down 3.6% m-o-m and down 2.5% y-o-y. Gas-fired generation declined to 10.2TWh, down 1.7% m-o-m and was only 0.4% higher y-o-y.

Power generation from renewable sources reached 2.1TWh, up 2.7% m-o-m and up 34.6% y-o-y. This includes hydro generation, which fell to 0.6TWh, down 7.04% m-o-m but still was 59.1% higher y-o-y.

Thailand produced 101.4TWh of electricity in H118, up 1% y-o-y. Coal-fired generation increased to 18.7TWh, up 1% y-o-y. On the other hand, gas-fired generation fell to 57.7TWh, down 4.4% y-o-y. Renewable generation increased to 12.7TWh, up 25.2% y-o-y. This includes hydro power output, which increased to 3.7TWh, up 44.7% y-o-y.
