Impressive hydro-floating solar cell project set to start supplying electricity this month


The Hydro-Floating Solar Hybrid Project in Sirindhorn Dam, which is claimed to be the largest floating solar cell project in the world with a capacity of 45 megawatts, is now 99.26 per cent complete and ready for commercial power supply this October, deputy government spokesperson Ratchada Thanadirek said.

The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand also has projects in Ubolratana Dam and other dams across the country, with a total capacity goal of 2,725 megawatts by 2037 to accelerate electricity generation from clean energy, lower the purchase of electricity from abroad and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Thailand has set a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions target and hopes to become carbon neutral by 2065-2070, in line with the UN’s goal of ensuring access to modern energy at affordable, reliable and sustainable prices.
