Description

Thailand, known for its plentiful sunshine, has spent years developing its solar energy industry. Aside from the obvious environmental benefits, the motivation for using solar energy helps preserve the nation's economy and reducing energy imports from its South East Asia neighbours. The sector has become so successful that countries across Asia are now looking to replicate it. Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler reports from Lopburi, Thailand.
