Technical Assistance to Analyze Thailand’s drafted Third-Party Access (TPA) Framework and Potential Provisions for a Pricing Mechanism and Congestion Management (NARUC/US DOS)

VIS has been commissioned by NARUC (assignment funded by the United States Department of State) to support the Thailand Office of the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) in overseeing the implementation of an open access regime in Thailand. The study will provide suggested revisions to the Third Party Access (TPA) Framework drafted by the ERC and a proposed pricing mechanism for wheeling charges. The study will assist the ERC in identifying crucial considerations governing non-discriminatory third-party access to electricity transmission and distribution networks, thus creating robust, open and effective competition in electricity sector markets.
