With the development of the economy, the energy demand of Thailand is expanding, especially for the power energy. In 2016, Thailand proposed the “Industry 4.0” strategy, including “Energy 4.0”, and launched a series of preferential policies to attract foreign investment.

Finally, by analyzing the Chinese investment opportunities in the new energy industry of Thailand, it is found that: 1. Both the Chinese and Thai governments attach great importance to the development of new energy sources, each with policies to support the development of energy companies; 2. Thailand has abundant natural resources and has great potential for developing new energy. 3. China and Thailand engage in new energy cooperation to achieve complementary industries; 4.Thailand’s on-grid tariff policy is beneficial to SME investment, in addition, Thailand began to develop new energy vehicle industry; 5.
