    The policy on nuclear power plants in Thailand must be imposed at a national level, driven both by the government and parliament, said Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) Governor, Sombat Sarntijaree.

    Mr Sombat said the EGAT had set plans to generate 2,000 megawatts of electricity from coal and nuclear power each. However, the production of electricity from coal was costly as it caused carbon emissions. If the nation was to generate electricity from coal it must use carbon capture and sequestration technologies to tackle the emissions and also bring the production cost of coal electricity to 2.50 baht per unit, the governor said.

    Is Thailand ready for Nuclear Power? 

    Alternative energy, has long been responsible for heroic roles since mankind has witnessed the first few consequential signs of the nature-abuse we have committed. However, unlike the wind or solar energy protagonists, nuclear power could never quite precede from the gray zone – if not deemed as a total villain. Many nations decided to advance with the technology yet this never-ending controversy leaves many others in a struggle. Thailand is among those skeptics who are about to make its first leap towards the nuclear power. But are we really ready for it? (More …)
