The purpose of this project is to transform Phuket into a Smart City and respond to the government’s Thailand 4.0 initiative through renewable energy development.
As part of this collaboration, Banpu Infinergy and Phuket City Development will study the feasibility of setting up microgrid systems through the use of energy storage systems in appropriate areas across Phuket, installing solar rooftop systems to make the best use of electricity and by exploring the possibility of using electric vehicles to enhance the population’s quality of life.
Banpu Plc’s chief executive officer and director of Banpu Infinergy Co Ltd Somruedee Chaimongkol said that Banpu Infinergy will continue to invest in renewable energy.
The company will not limit itself to solar energy but also explore the possibility of expanding to energy storage and energy management systems to help the government achieve its Smart City initiatives.
