The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) is the the country's largest electricity utility and also dominates the coal mining sector.
The USGS reports that EGAT "invested $6 billion to build the country’s first nuclear powerplant. The nuclear plant would produce 4,000 megawatts of electricity as part of the nation’s long-term energy plan to cope with looming power shortages. Thailand currently relied on natural gas for 70% of its electricity generation; the remainder was supplied by coal, hydropower, and oil."
