Feed-in Tariff for Very Small Power Producers (VSPP) (excluding solar PV)

Source: IEA/IRENA Renewables Policies Database
Last updated: 7 September 2015

On 15th of December 2014 Thailand adopted a Feed-in Tariff for Very Small Power Producers (VSPP) of less than 10 MW installed capacity. The new scheme replaces old feed-in premium scheme.

The new FIT will be granted for 20 years, an exception being power systems fuelled by landfill gas which will receive support for 10 years only. The FIT rates differ greatly on power plant size and fuel types and different bonuses are being granted for certain systems.

The new FIT is composed of three components: FIT(F) - fixed portion of remuneration, FIT(V) - variable portion of the remuneration dependent on the inflation rate and FIT(P) - feed-in premium that is split according to the fuel type, period of remuneration and location.
