Thai renewable energy firm BCPG, an arm of oil and gas company Bangchak Corporation, is actively looking at investing in rooftop solar as well as an online marketplace for clean energy, according to a Reuters report.
The firm is discussing the online platform for buying and selling green energy with foreign partners, company president Bundit Sapianchai told Reuters.
BCPG is one of the largest solar IPPs in Thailand, with a portfolio that includes 182MW of operating PV in Thailand and 236MW in Japan, said the firm’s website. The company’s installed capacity of solar, wind, geothermal and biomass has now reached 585MW, up 211MW in one year, which included a 9MW solar farm for the Thai government.
BCPG raised THB5.75 billion (US$166 million) in its IPO on the Stock Exchange of Thailand last September.
Last month, renewables and storage investment platform Constant Energy acquired 17.5MW of operating ground-mount solar PV assets, a team of developers and operators, and a pipeline of development in Thailand from Sonnedix.
