This paper presents an assessment of the onshore wind energy potential in Thailand using the Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS). A 9 km resolution, 1,150 km by 1,750 km, wind resource map at 120 m elevation above ground level (agl) is produced based on the NCEP reanalysis database for the three year period of 2009-2011. The onshore wind resource map is validated by comparing the modeling results to observed wind data at 100 m agl from the Pollution Control Department (PCD) of Thailand, and at 120 m agl from the National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT). The Mean Square Error (MSE) is computed and is use as the main criterion to evaluate the simulation results. Results showed that, for the study area, the annual mean wind speeds at 120 m agl are in the range of 1.60-5.83 m/s. For its part, the maximum annual mean power density at 120 m agl is approximately 200 W/m2 which corresponds to a wind power density of Class 2. Results show that the region has a good wind regime in the mountain areas of western, southern and eastern Thailand. Further assessment is needed to determine if the onshore wind energy resource could be developed and exploited in order to achieve national renewable energy policy targets in Thailand.
