Published onFebruary 7, 2019

The transformative potential enabled by the intersection of clean energy technologies and the interconnected digital economy offers an ideal platform for powering “Thailand 4.0.” Adopted by the Thai government in 2016, “Thailand 4.0” is a model for growth that aims to transition Thailand into a high-income country through an economy centered around knowledge, innovation, and value addition. Thailand’s next phase of growth requires a new paradigm for the power sector; one that leads to a low-carbon economy while ensuring energy security, affordability, and sustainability. This new paradigm must be based on the combination of clean energy technologies, distributed generation, energy efficiency, storage, electric vehicles, and digital technologies that is already being deployed on a large scale around the world.
