This case study examines a small power producers program in Thailand that is part of the country’s 15-year Alternative Power Development Plan. The program examined provides subsidies and payments to small power producers of both renewable and conventional energy, and it gives incentives to industrial power customers to buy renewable energy directly from private suppliers. The report finds that success has been mixed, largely because the subsidy is government-set and does not respond to market demand, among other factors.
