Panasonic to Produce lithium-ion batteries for EVs from its Himeji plant in 2019

Posted on : 02 Jan, 2018


Japanese electronics major – Panasonic Corp is planning to produce lithium-ion batteries for electric cars at its Himeji plant in Hyogo Prefecture. Panasonic plans to start manufacturing in 2019. It is going to use its existing unused space at the plant which was earlier used for LCD TV panel production. Currently, Panasonic’s Himeji plant manufactures small and medium-size liquid crystal display panels for vehicles and medical equipment.

Global demand for electric vehicles is expected to grow manifold. Already several automakers are shifting towards low-emission vehicles as governments across the world enforce tighter emission regulations. China, the world’s biggest car market, is pushing the move toward electric cars. The country is also planning to ban fossil fuel cars. 

Panasonic plans to sell the batteries for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids to domestic automakers in Japan. 

Panasonic already has five other lithium-ion battery production plants in Japan. It is also supplies lithium-ion batteries to Tesla in USA. Besides, Panasonic has also partnered with Tesla to operate the Gigafactory in Nevada, USA – that mass-produces lithium-ion batteries.

More about Asia’s electric vehicles and lithium-ion battery production at CMT’s Battery, EV & Storage APAC on 15-16 March, 2018 in Bangkok.

Energy Absolute to add 1,000 electric-vehicle charging stations in Thailand

Posted on : 26 Oct, 2017


As demand for electric vehicles rise, Energy Absolute has planned to provide necessary infrastructure via 1,000 electric-vehicle charging stations in Thailand. The Thai government aims to attract production sites for cutting-edge electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, but there is a dearth of infrastructure to make the system work. Lack of charging infrastructure and high vehicle prices have led to a low demand for electric vehicles.

Energy Absolute’s investment of 600 million baht ($18 million) into charging stations is expected by end of 2018.

The Thai renewable energy company has already started a free charging service at two shopping centers in Bangkok. The charging stations are supposed to be branded as EA Anywhere. Energy Absolute plans to focus on capital area initially with plans to expand to regional gas stations.  

As of March, 2017, Thailand had a total of 30 electric-vehicle charging stations – of which 6 are operated by oil and gas company PTT. PTT plans charging stations at another 20 locations within this year while German automaker BMW has plans to open 50 stations.
