泰国拟定使用区块链发电售电收取额外费用

泰国官员起草的新法规要求向使用区块链技术的电力生产商收取额外费用。

据《日经新闻亚洲评论》报道,泰国发电局(EGAT)要求支付这笔费用作为区块链技术带来的潜在影响的补贴。

ERC成员Viraphol Jirapraditkul表示:

“家用太阳能屋顶发电机的数量正在迅速增加。这就是能源监管委员会(ERC)需要制定对每个人都公平监管的原因。”

越来越多的泰国公司利用分布式账本技术(DLT)帮助房主从屋顶太阳能系统中获利。新一代区块链消费者通过在分散的点对点(p2p)能源市场上买卖剩余的太阳能电力资源,导致该国国有公用事业利润锐减。

换句话说,随着市场规模的扩大,直接从国营公用事业公司购买的电力减少,这意味着传统电力行业的利润减少。

就在一年前,泰国还放弃了对非政府太阳能发电的严格限制。据《曼谷邮报》报道,泰国政府允许家庭和企业去年9月将太阳能电池板产生的剩余能量出售给EGAT,但或许当初并没有料到p2p能源社区会如此迅速地采用区块链技术吧。

New regulations drafted by Thailand officials demand that electricity producers using blockchain be charged additional fees. Government regulators fear an explosion in independent power generation will lead to a reduction in revenue.

Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) has demanded the fees be paid as a subsidy for potentially destabilizing effects blockchain technology brings, Nikkei Asian Review reports.

“The number of household solar rooftop power generators is increasing rapidly. That’s why the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) needs to develop regulation that is fair for everybody,” declared ERC member Viraphol Jirapraditkul.

There is a growing number of Thai companies leveraging distributed ledger technology (DLT) to help homeowners profit from rooftop solar systems. A new generation of blockchain-savvy consumers is muscling the state-owned utilities out of profits by buying and selling surplus solar energy on decentralized peer-to-peer (p2p) energy markets.

As the markets grow bigger, less electricity is being purchased directly from the state-run utilities, meaning less profits for the traditional power industry.

Here, we are witnessing the decentralization of the energy sector, in Thailand at least. Andreas Antonopolous thinks that this is one of the “most important trends in human history.” Despite the benefits of p2p energy markets, the fact that governments can just impose additional fees to compensate puts a real dampener on things.

It was only a year ago that Thailand rolled back strict restrictions on non-government solar power generation. Bangkok Post reported that the Thai government allowed households and businesses to sell surplus energy generated by solar panels back to EGAT last September, but I guess it didn’t count on blockchain being adopted by the p2p energy community so quickly.
