EGAT is a large organization which has played a vital role in power generation and
transmission. For the past 45 years, it has been our commitment to build power system
stability and to encourage the power grid interconnection with the neighbouring countries
on the basis of environment, society and community responsibility. We own and operate
39 power plants located at different sites across the kingdom with the installed capacity
larger than 15000 MW or 45% of the total installed capacity. We also operate a high
voltage transmission network and National Control Center under the Enhanced Single
Buyer (ESB) Model. Natural gas is major fuel in power generation, followed by lignite, heavy
oil and diesel respectively. Apart from these, renewable energy such as hydro, solar and
wind power is also used to reduce global warming.
In 2015, ASEAN member countries will enter ASEAN Economic Community or AEC, EGAT has
been implementing projects to strengthen energy system and enhance competitiveness
of the country. The major project is the interconnection of ASEAN power system or ASEAN
Power Grid initiated in year 2000 to fulfl one of ASEAN Vision 2020. The goal of the project

built up by all sectors including private and government agencies, investors especially
energy investors who have to invest in environmental friendly power projects. Therefore,
it needs more close cooperation and networks from all related sectors in order to pave
the way towards the sustainable future through clean power infrastructure, technologies
and equipment. Besides, fnancial models and supportive measures for renewable
energy projects to serve the growing demand on power consumption are very essential
and needs to be further promoted.
