Solar Energy

Solar energy is the energy received by earth from the sun.

How it works:
Solar energy is achieved by collecting sunlight and

converting it into thermal or electrical energy on earth.

Applications: solar-powered cars/calculators/etc. , used in

home appliances such as solar cookers or solar water heaters

Advantages: sunlight is free, unlimited, nonpolluting,

versatile/functional, requires less maintenance, long-lasting

Disadvantages: intermittent, inefficient, expensive

installation, takes up a lot of space, difficult to store

Places its being used: mostly found in northern and northeastern Thailand; used on rooftop of the house

At the Lopburi solar farm in central Thailand, more than 500,000 thin-film solar photovoltaic panels never used on this scale previously in Thailand will supply clean energy to 300,000 people.

Wind Energy

Description: Wind energy is energy collected from motion

cause by winds.

How it works: Wind turns the blades of wind turbines, which

spin a shaft, which connects to a generator and makes electricity.

Applications: wind-powered
vehicles/sports/water pumps

Advantages: wind is free, clean, selfsufficient, prices wont inflate

Disadvantages: the energy produced isnt stable, degrading

to the landscape, generate noise, harmful to some flying animals

Places its being used: mostly found and used in

Southern Thailand & Northeastern Thailand

The wind power plant in Nakhon Ratchasima province can reduce the emission of green house gases up to 2,300 tons a year.

Hydro Electricity

Description: Hydroelectricity is produced by the use of

gravitational force of falling or flowing water

How it works: Dams hold flowing water and create

pressure so water can produce more electrical power

Applications: used to generate electricity for

home scale remote power systems

Advantages: water is free, long-lasting,

reliable, no fuel cost

Disadvantages: plants are expensive to build, dams harm the


Places its being used: mostly found and used in Northern

and Northeastern Thailand

Hydropower today provides about 20% of the worlds electricity and is the main energy source for more than 30 countries.

Natural Gas

Description: Natural gas is a naturally occurring

hydrocarbon gas mixture consisting of methane, and other hydrocarbons

How it works: Burning natural gas causes it to release

energy needed to use

Applications: heating, cooking, transportation Advantages: safely stored, safely burned long endurance,
cost less

Disadvantages: highly flammable, limited availability,

leaking cause serious explosions Places its being used: found in Gulf of Thailand, used in the NGV station all over Thailand

Natural gas supplies about one-third of Thailands energy demand.


Description: Gasohol is a mixture of alcohol and gasoline. How it works: Gasohol powers cars through combustion. Applications: used as fuel in internal combustion machines Advantages: reduce air consumption and air pollution from
vehicle exhaust

Disadvantages: low boiling points, requires more fuel than


Places its being used: found and used all over Thailand

Gasohol is typically cheaper than petroleum as it is cheaper to manufacture.

And we have to thanks to our beloved King Bhumibol, that plays a major role in Thai alternative energy sources such as the developing of gasohol in Thailand
