A man walks in solar farm.Thailand has great potential in producing solar power. Government promotion of renewable energy supports these cleaner technologies. The Thai Government has also set a National Agenda for renewable energy, which aims for 25% of the countrys energy portfolio to come from renewable sources by 2022.However, Thailand lacks the infrastructure that will truly support such high potential, like pushing for a Renewable Energy law for example, that will promote policies, increase energy security in the country by reducing energy imports, increasing energy resources, building competitive energy market for sustainable economic growth, and help reduce CO2 emissions.
