The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand has signed a cooperation agreement with electrolyser manufacturer Enapter to advance the production of hydrogen in Thailand.
The two companies are taking action to deploy green hydrogen gas a carbon-free energy carrier in the country.
Together, they will establish a Green Mini-Grid Sandbox Project at EGAT. Mini-Grids are autonomous power systems that operate independently of the central electrical grid infrastructure.
“We have been tracking the technological advances showcased in Chiang Mai and spearheaded by Enapter and are intrigued by their modular and flexible technology to produce green hydrogen without carbon emissions,” said Deputy Governor Patana Sangsriroujana of EGAT during the signing ceremony on 11th August.
Following the establishment of the Mini-Grid, Sangsriroujana said they aim to deploy the technology in Thailand and potentially beyond.
Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, Chairman of Enapter, added, “Green hydrogen has the potential to replace fossil fuel completely. We have been demonstrating this successfully with the Phi Suea House, now it is time to scale AEM electrolyser production.”
“We are thrilled about the partnership with the largest power producer in Thailand.”
