[en] The latest strategy for an energy system in Thailand was revised in 2015 and is provided in the Thailand Power Development Plan 2015–2036, which proposes the deployment of NPPs. However, Thailand is a newcomer country regarding the deployment of nuclear technology, whereas coal power plants (CPPs) have been widely used in the country. Therefore, coal power technology is considered to be a potential energy source in Thailand. According to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, coal technology currently accounts for approximately 20% of total electricity production, and the authority itself has planned to install a few more CPPs across the country in the near future. For this reason, a CPP was chosen as a non-NES alternative for the comparative evaluation in this study. The supporting data for the study have been taken from relevant national or international organizations in the form of articles, reports, presentations and expert judgements.
