Community Power Plant Project Procurement Regulations
MPG Legal Update illustrates the Regulations of the Energy Regulatory Commission on power procurement from very small power producers for the Community Power Plant Project for the Local Economy (2020).
Thailand has issued new Community Power Plant Project Procurement Regulations detailing eligibility criteria, terms and conditions for Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for Very Small Power Producers (VSPPs). The new regulation is part of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand’s (EGAT) Energy Policy for the Local Economy.
In abidance with the current legislation on public procurement, VSPPs must not generate more than 10 MW per project, which can fall into one of the following categories: biomass; biogas from wastewater or waste; biogas from biofuel; a hybrid of biomass with biogas (wastewater or waste); and a hybrid of biogas (biofuel) with solar power.
