For the purpose of this report, a number of public stakeholders were consulted including representatives from the Ministry of Energy, the Provincial Electricity Authority, the Energy Regulatory Commission, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment as well as private companies. The outcomes of these consultations are combined and used as a basis for different electrification pathways of Thai islands which are extensively described: in fact, since there is not only one way to proceed with rural electrification, different models were created in response to different conditions and requirements but specifically to provide alternatives to the deployment of submarine cables in small islands.
