Speaking about the deal Thai energy minister Wannarat Charnukul said Thep Sathit formed part of the country’s aim to derive 20% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.

Kovit Kantapasara, GE Energy’s country executive for Thailand and Indochina said: "Thailand’s multi-year incentives have made wind energy development a competitive proposition for potential investors. This memorandum of understanding is testimony to how long-term policies that match the life cycle of an investment, are driving the growth of renewable power generation."
