On 29 March 2018, DFDL Bangkok hosted a breakfast seminar on ‘Solar Rooftop Activities in Thailand – Towards Phase 2’ at the office. This relaxed and informal session initially focused on the developmental history of this exciting sector. This was followed by an overview of the current regulatory framework governing solar rooftop projects, project structuring, common business and legal models, current economic incentives, and other practical issues associated with the future of this sector in Thailand. The in-house event served as a fertile forum for group discussion, providing all those present with the opportunity to exchange perspectives and share opinions on the issues under discussion. Audray Souche (Partner and Managing Director) and Suradech Hongsa (Senior Legal Adviser) were the speakers at this event.
Given its population, economic, urban and industrial profile, Thailand is a naturally attractive market for solar rooftop activities. This is particularly true for those foreign investors with extensive experience in other regions of the world now looking to expand into South-East Asia. Nonetheless, the solar rooftop development has been facing several structural challenges. As the dynamism in this sector gathers increasing pace, talks and thoughts on needed reforms finally seem to be coming to fruition, with new legislation and amended Power Development Plan expected very soon.
Are we on the verge of game-changing reform that may potentially usher in a new era of solar rooftop generation in Thailand?
