Alternative Energy Sources in Thailand

Researched by: Nutnicha and Panutad Power Point Designed by: Natdhanai Presented by: Ava

Solar Energy produces energy by capturing the sunlight rays and converting it into electricity. Thai Solar Energy Co., Ltd. is the main organizer for Thailand solar energy. This helps reduce pollution by using natural energy instead of using (ex.) coal to produce electricity. But it requires sunlight to produce electricity to use, so its very useless at nighttime or less sunlight. It can be found in Kanjanaburi, Thailand.

Wind Power
- The giant turbine spins and sends energy to the motor at the back to convert the wind energy to electricity. - Wind Energy Holding Co., Ltd. is the organizer of wind power for Thailand. - The building itself consumes small amount of land, so it can be built a lot. And with more quantity meant more energy is produced. But it can be useless if the weather is rough (because it damages the building) or when the wind is not strong enough to push the turbine, spinning it. - It can be found at Petchabun, Thailand.

Hydro Power
A dam is built on a rough flowing river. Inside the dam was a system of hydroelectric power generator. The water spins the turbine in the dam, and the turbine sends the electricity to the converter to be used. It can produce a lot of electricity, obviously because it is very big. Most of the time it is useful, but if some BIG garbage stuck inside the dam, it would be very hard to take it out. One Good example would be Bhumibol Dam (it was builded at Tak Province)

Recycle
Recycle is a way of renewing garbage to use again. Like a used paper can be recycle to use again. Thai Ecotrade Ltd. is the organizer of recycle in Thailand. Sure everybody says recycle is the best solution to clear the wastes, but recycling costs money, a lot of money. That why most people just use the same own method The landfill. The factory is located at Bangkok, Thailand

The use of material from living things, or plant-derived. It can be converted in to three ways: thermal, chemical, and biochemical conversion. This energy is renewable in a very short amount of time. Like plant, but the problem is that we use it faster than renewing the energy. Wood is the main source of biomass in Thailand. We can produce biomass energy anywhere in Thailand, as long as we have the necessary equipment. Biomass Energy

Nuclear Power
The system is very complex, to explain briefly, water vapor is produced (from fission heat), the steam is send to the turbines,and then the turbines spin and generate electricity. Currently there is no nuclear power in Thailand, but according to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, they say to be five in 2026. This would greatly reduce Thailands natural gas consumption. They are five locations in which the nuclear power plant will be build. First, Nakhon Si Thammarat. Second, Surat Thani. Third, Trat. Fourth, Nakhon Sawan. Fifth, Ubon Ratchathani.
