Thailand’s power generation reached 17.5TWh in August, up 0.3% m-o-m but still was 1% lower y-o-y. Coal-fired generation fell to 3TWh, down 7.9% m-o-m and down 3.9% y-o-y. While gas-fired generation declined to 9.5TWh, down 3.3% m-o-m and down 12.1% y-o-y. This is mostly due to the rise in renewable generation.
Domestic hydro generation jumped to 0.9TWh, up 59.3% m-o-m and up 191.3% y-o-y. Imported electricity from hydroelectric dams located in neighbouring Laos increased to 2.5TWh, up 14.2% m-o-m and up 15.3% y-o-y. Power generation from other renewable sources fell to 1.5TWh in August, but still was 26.2% higher y-o-y.
Thailand generated 136.4TWh over the Jan.-August period, up 0.9% y-o-y. Coal-fired generation increased marginally to 24.9TWh, up 0.5% y-o-y. Gas-fired generation fell to 77.1TWh, down 4.7% y-o-y.
Domestic hydro generation increased to 5.1TWh, up 59.1% y-o-y. Imported hydro generation increased to 17.5TWh, up 6.7% y-o-y. Power generation from other renewable sources jumped to 12.1TWh, up 20.8% y-o-y.
