Renewable Energy in Thailand?

kkk
Please provide me with the updates of the current policy direction in Thailand, in Thai or english.
คำตอบ

The new government follow the direction set forth by the last administration, albeit some changes in personnel and priorities were made.

The promotion for biofuels through tax incentives are still in place and this provide generous benefits to petroleum refiners but not quite the biofuel producers.

The longer term plan is still to be determined, perhaps we will need a legilation to make the commitment.
