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.
