Feasibility of nuclear power plants in Thailand (Current Issue No.3464)


        Thailand’s power generation capacity exceeded demand by 34 percent in 2022, with a total capacity of 49,099 MW, higher than the peak demand of 32,250 MW. KResearch holds the view that if only the issues of cost and alternative energy are considered, nuclear power is not suitable for deployment in Thailand at present. This is because its cost is 2-3 times greater than that of renewable energy, and the country already has excess power generation of over 34 percent.
