Energy Policy and Planning Office Director and Energy Ministry Thawarat Sutabutra said that the construction of a coal-fired power plant in Krabi district creates energy security for the southern region especially along the Andaman Sea coasts where there is no large power plant. 

Thailand uses 70% of natural gas to generate electricity so the coal-fired power plant is the best way to minimize risks and reduce dependence on natural gas, he said. 

He added that the coal-fired power plant would not affect the environment since the eco-friendly technologies would be applied to the plant’s operation.
