Thailand must develop alternative energy, say experts

Published

Thailand needs to act now to seriously develop alternative energy of all kinds in the face of a gradual decline in fossil-based fuel, higher energy prices and mounting concern over the global warming, according to experts in energy affairs.

Most experts shared a common view at a seminar on “Thailand’s Alternative Energy: Weather Crisis and Create Opportunities” that the country must begin to develop alternative energy sources regardless of whether it involves hydropower, oil, or nuclear in a tangible manner.

They noted although Thailand had a strategic plan for energy development in the next 15 and 20 years, it lacked collaboration between the agencies and companies involved, which resulted in a delay in the implementation of many energy development projects.

At the same time, some observers still believe that alternative fuel such as biodiesel B5 and gasohol would have a negative impact on vehicle engines. This view led to the low consumption of alternative fuel in Thailand although it was proven worldwide that the fuel had not affected the engines.
