  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy is responsible for energy policy development through its own department, the Energy Policy and Planning Office (EPPO). However, ultimately the National Energy Policy Committee (NEPC), which is chaired by the Prime Minister, represents the decision-making body.

    The Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE) is responsible for activities ...

  • Energy Companies


    Petroleum Authority of Thailand (PTT) is the national oil company (51% owned by the government).

  • Energy Supply


    Proved natural gas reserves amount to 193 bcm (2017), i.e. around 4 years of consumption. Most of the gas reserves are located offshore in the Gulf of Thailand. Proved oil reserves amounted to 54 Mt in 2017, representing less than one year of consumption. Thailand also has significant lignite reserves, but its use brings about environmental problems (1.1 Gt).

  • Energy Prices


    The average prices of electricity are US$9.1c/kWh for industry and US$10c/kWh for households (2017). A new structure for the electricity tariffs was adopted in 2005 to control the electricity price rises before the privatisation of EGAT. The basic tariff was capped at 2.25 baht/kWh until 2008; that basic tariff included the administrative costs of EGAT and the costs in currencies. A ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita consumption in 2017 was 2 toe, including around 2 700 kWh of electricity.

    Total energy consumption is growing rapidly (3.9%/year since 2000) and reached 138 Mtoe in 2017. Oil covers 40% of the country's needs, natural gas 26%, biomass 20% and coal 12%. The gas market share has increased (12% in 1990, 24% in 2000) to the detriment of oil.

    Since 2000 the final ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    TIEB 2015 defines the energy trajectory until 2036. Oil demand is expected to increase by 3.3%/year until 2036 in the BAU scenario.
