TotalEnergies accelerates growth of renewables in the Asia Pacific region with new solar projects in Thailand and Vietnam
The region accounts for 36% of its global installed renewable generation capacity
Singapore, October 23, 2023 – TotalEnergies, the Multi-Energy Partner at Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) 2023, is committed to growing renewables in Asia Pacific. In 2023, the region accounts for more than 36% of its global renewable installed power generation capacity: it has 7 GW of capacity installed,1.1 GW in construction and 11.8 GW in development.
The global multi-energy company announces two new solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in Thailand and Vietnam.
- Thailand – first floating solar PV system for TotalEnergies ENEOS in Asia Pacific: TotalEnergies ENEOS has signed a 12-year agreement with S. Kijchai Enterprise, a leading manufacturer of wood-based panels in Thailand. The new project is a 1.8 megawatt-peak (MWp) floating solar PV system to help the customer decarbonize its facility. With over 3,000 of modules installed, the PV system is expected to generate 2,650 MWh of renewable electricity annually, realising significant cost savings and reducing the customer’s carbon footprint by about 1,125 tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to planting around 18,500 trees. This is the second project with S. Kijchai following the solar roof project in 2019.
- Vietnam – first agri-PV system for TotalEnergies ENEOS in Asia Pacific: TotalEnergies entered into a 20-year agreement with Hiep Phat International Agricultural, a leading starch manufacturer in Vietnam, to provide a 2.1 MWp solar PV system for its plant and offices in Tay Ninh, Vietnam. With over 3,600 panels installed, the ground-mounted solar PV system will power 20% of its facilities with renewable energy, generating 3,250 MWh of renewable electricity.
Under both agreements, TotalEnergies will fully fund, install and operate the systems while partners will pay for the electricity generated, avoiding any upfront costs. This will help each customer realize significant cost savings for their facilities and reduce CO2 emissions by 2050.
“Our multi-energy approach is fast gaining momentum, with Asia Pacific playing a pivotal role in our pursuit of achieving more energy with less emission. TotalEnergies has solar and wind projects in operations and/ or construction including Australia, China, India, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, and Kazakhstan. We are actively exploring new developments to meet the increasing energy demands in this region,” remarked Ting Wee LIANG, President of Marketing & Services, Asia Pacific Middle East, and Country Chair Singapore, TotalEnergies.
“As a leading solar service provider known for our proven track record in deploying renewable energy solutions in highly technical and complex sites, we are delighted to be the partner of choice for customers. We are committed to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint, while we adapt to new market segments and needs for a cleaner energy future,” added Elodie RENAUD, Director of TotalEnergies ENEOS Renewables Distributed Generation Asia.
At SIEW 2023, TotalEnergies presents its industry insights on how governments, international institutions and industries can work together towards a Net Zero Asia, and ASEAN Pathway for regional Interconnectivity. It will also showcase a broad range of innovative multi-energy solutions & technologies including: LNG, renewables (solar & wind), battery storage, electric mobility, hydrogen.
