Nissan Thailand and Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) have signed an MoU to promote the development of EV charging services 'PEA Volta Verse' and further EV adoption in Thailand.

The collaboration also supports the adoption of a 'Thai EV ecosystem'. This include the co-study research, testing and development innovations related to EV charging station service and application in the country, according to the press statement from Nissan.

"Nissan is well-positioned to support the adoption of electrified mobility in Thailand. This partnership demonstrates Nissan's strong commitment to EVs and sustainable mobility, as well as how Nissan can contribute to a cleaner world and a more sustainable society with the support and collaboration of the public and private sectors", said Mr. Masao Tsutsumi, Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Aftersales and Dealer Network Development, Nissan Motor Thailand.

As a leading EV charging stations network in the country, PEA Volta Verse aims to open 263 touchpoints by 2023 on main routes, secondary routes and near tourist attractions in Thailand. The digital platform offers a host of services to facilitate electric vehicle users and charging station operators in the country.

The MoU ceremony and event were held at the High Voltage Training Center-PEA Nakhon Pathom Province. Nissan exhibited the Nissan Energy Share concept by demonstrating the unique energy management capability of the Nissan LEAF that acts as mobile storage batteries to supply homes and society with electricity.

Nissan LEAF, the brand's pioneering electric car designed for the mass market, is one of the only EVs sold in Thailand that can provide V2H electrification directly via CHAdeMO charging, according to the company.

In January 2022, Nissan introduced 'Blue Switch' program in Thailand to address social concerns by leveraging the unique capabilities of EVs for purposes beyond mobility and promote their use to help communities, from disaster relief efforts to providing energy management solutions.
