Thailand’s smart grid initiative will be at the centre of discussion of the upcoming The Future Energy Show Thailand 2019 between November 27 and 28, 2019.

With Thailand's rapidly developing economy and growing population, it already leads Southeast Asia in renewable energy installed capacity, and with the Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP) targeting 30% renewable energy by 2036, billions of dollars are being invested in its energy transformation.

The Smart Grid initiative, part of the Ministry of Energy's Master Plan, maps out a framework for energy supply security, grid resiliency, and energy efficiency, working in tandem with the Thailand 4.0 Initiative. Thailand's state-owned utilities alone will spend over US$6 billion (Bt 200 billion) on implementing smart grid projects between now and 2036.

Featuring insights from over 130 outstanding speakers across six free-to-attend stages, attendees will enjoy insights on the latest technologies in solar, energy storage, wind, smart grids and smart energy, power generation, transmission and distribution and more.

Keynote speakers include Bundit Sapachai, president of BGPG; Dr. Akarin Suwannarat, executive vice president and chief technology officer at Energy Absolute; and, Dr. Surat Tanterdtid, enterprise architecture chief for IT Strategic Planning at EGAT

The event will also feature addresses from the Ministry of Energy and the Digital Economy Promotion Agency and all four major state utilities will be represented as speakers.

The two-day event is expected to bring together 1,500 attendees from technology and equipment manufacturers, turnkey suppliers, project developers, large energy users, property owners and more, alongside an exhibition featuring exciting solution providers and innovative start-ups changing the face of Thailand's energy industry.
