Banpu Infinergy Company Limited, a subsidiary of Banpu Public Company Limited, makes its debut on the market as a one-stop provider of total solar energy solutions using advanced technology. In the first phase, Banpu Infinergy is offering total solar energy solutions in the form of high-quality rooftop solar systems and solar street lights and accessories. Its one-stop services include consultation, system design, installation, inspection and maintenance especially for industrial and private use. Centred on the concept of “Go Green Together”, Banpu Infinergy encourages organizations to become part of the production and optimization of green energy with zero investment, thus further reducing electricity costs while responding to the government’s policy and the Alternative Energy Development Plan.

Not only we have more than 30 years of experience and expertise in the coal and power businesses, but we are also eager to develop renewable energy by integrating advanced technology with energy production so as to adjust to the ever-changing environment ranging from the increasing demand for greener energy and higher growth of renewable energy consumption to the unlimited digital world. Having formed a solid platform for technology and one-stop customer service, we decided to officially launch Banpu Infinergy. This is also considered a step forward from our solar farm plants in China and Japan and moves towards the enforcement of the Energy 4.0 policy, which aims to encourage the creation of new energy-related innovations, promote the use of renewable energy, and strengthen Thailand’s energy perspective.”
Banpu Infinergy will initially provide high-quality rooftop solar systems and solar street lights and accessories. A highlight of the sales packages is the “Signature Infinergy”, which offers zero investment installation of a solar system with lower solar electricity cost including free maintenance and equipment throughout the contract period of 20-25 years. Two other sales packages are also available, each with different benefits.
Banpu Infinergy boasts a team of competent engineers well-versed in system design, equipment selection from a range of leading brands, and standardized system installation. By constantly monitoring the system installed for each customer through the Control Room, engineers can promptly respond to the customers if they need technical assistance as well as real-time performance report under the concept of “Smart Service” management via the mobile application – Banpu Infinergy – allowing customers to track the power generating capacity as well as electricity costs with real-time notification in the event of a technical error occurring and enjoy direct contact with customer service. Banpu Infinergy’s current customers are spread over various industries and include large factories, hotels, schools and petrol stations.
In terms of the 5-year roadmap, Banpu Infinergy plans to achieve the power generating capacity of 300 MW from solar energy to serve future demand in accordance with the Ministry of Energy’s Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP 2015), which targets an increase in overall renewable energy consumption in Thailand from 13.9% to 30% by 2036. Banpu Infinergy is also committed to studying the possibilities for optimizing Energy Management System (EMS) and Energy Storage System (ESS) in production control, energy transfer and energy storage, as well as electric vehicles.
“We believe that the renewable energy trend in Thailand will become clearer as it is in other countries, such as Japan, China, Australia and the United States where solar energy is widely utilized. Banpu Infinergy is a part to fulfil Banpu’s Greener & Smarter strategy striving to incorporate upstream, midstream and downstream operations, which further strengthens the growth of Banpu. This also underlines that we are ready to be a leading provider of energy in various sectors offering a strong total energy service, through advanced technology and high-quality, environmental friendly equipment. Our experienced and competent teams can support customers on operating costs saving without risk free. We have also initiated a social responsibility program – “Light & Learn” – to encourage our country’s sustainable and stable development through the use of green energy based on Banpu’s business principle towards stakeholders and to further cultivate the use of green energy in Thailand. In this regard, we have installed solar systems at 13 schools where had no access to electricity in the the Hill-Tribe Mae Fah Luang Learning Centre in Tak province targeting to reach a total of 24 school within this year,” Ms. Somruedee Chaimongkol concluded.
