From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Renewable energy in Thailand is a sector that is developing in Thailand. With its current rate of carbon emissions, Thailand must follow suit from its neighbors by cutting emissions down through the use of renewable energy. Several policies, such as the Eleventh Plan, set goals for renewable energy, such as biofuel implementation, in order to reduce the reliance of nonrenewable energy.  For example, the use of biofuel can provide many benefits, such as reducing carbon emissions and reducing reliance on imported fuel. Some of the major renewable energy sources would be wind power, solar power, and biofuel.
