Growatt Shine Elite Bangkok on Solar Inverter and Storage

Shine Elite Bangkok, Oct 18, 2018

Growatt Shine Elite is held in Bangkok, Thailand with local authorities, professors and Growatt representatives joining the seminar to explore the flexibility of energy market. The solar power of Thailand is surging with a target of 6,000 MW to be reached by 2036. By the end of 2015, Thailand has installed a total solar power capacity of 2,500 to 2,800 MW, which is more than all the rest of Southeast Asia combined. 

Professor Naebboon Hoonchareon, Head of Smart Grid Research Unit at Chulalongkorn University, says at the beginning of the seminar that the solar power in Thailand is evolving in terms of investment cost, conversion efficiency, etc. In recent years, the PV investment cost has been decreasing with conversion efficiency approaching 20%.

Thailand has great solar potential and the PEA (Provincial Electricity Authority) has come up with Smart Grid Master Plan, taking a step forward to support smart city development. Mr. Pantong Thinsatit, Manager of Smart Grid Planning Division, says “The outlook of smart micro grid is very promising, and it’s a long-term strategic development plan of our government.”
