Thai company plans 1,000 electric-vehicle charging stations

Energy Absolute hopes broad infrastructure accelerates demand for such cars

BANGKOK -- Thailand's Energy Absolute looks to establish and operate 1,000 electric-vehicle charging stations in the country by the end of 2018, investing a projected 600 million baht ($18 million).

The renewable energy company, which has debuted a free charging service at two shopping centers in the Thai capital of Bangkok, will develop the stations under the EA Anywhere brand. Energy Absolute will focus on the capital area first, with expansion to regional gas stations planned for later.
