Wandee Khunchornyakong

Chairman, SPCG

Dr. Wandee Khunchornyakong Juljarern is the pioneer of the solar farm & solar roof developer in Thailand and ASEAN since 2010.    

Thailand’s solar power market was at a standstill in 2008, with solar energy accounting for less than 2 MW of installed capacity. Technology costs were falling, though, and the government was starting incentives for renewable energy developers. She, a retired solar panel manufacturing, saw potential. She wanted to help reduce Thailand’s reliance on imported energy, and she believed she could drive economic growth in one of the country’s most impoverished regions at the same time by building utility-scale solar farms. Funding from the World Bank Group’s International Finance Corporation gave her Solar Power Company Group the boost it needed to attract investors to a then-untested arena in Thailand. 260 MW of solar farm has completed in 2014. Dr. Wandee and SPCG and were recognized today by the United Nations’ Climate Change secretariat with the prestigious Momentum for Change – Women for Results award, part of the UNFCCC’s Lighthouse Activities honoring projects from around the world that address climate change in 2014 at Lima, Peru as well as wider economic, social and envirnoment challenges.
