Update to Thailand’s Power Development Plan (PDP)
The PDP is part of the government’s long-term strategic blueprint for energy development and is generally updated every 3-4 years. Previous revisions have occurred in 2012 and 2015. The PDP outlines government policy priorities, and allows the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and government-owned utilities to implement concrete regulations and development plans.
On January 23, 2019, the National Energy Policy Council (NEPC) approved revisions to the PDP. The revised PDP, which will cover a period from 2018 to 2037, reportedly contains several targets which are likely to raise the interest of private investors. Once approved by the Cabinet, the updated PDP will take effect immediately without any additional formalities, and will be published on the website of the Energy Policy and Planning Office (EPPO).
