Ltd. along with senior executives, who attended the press conference at centralwOrld, Bangkok.

Ms. Wallaya Chirathivat, President & CEO of Central Pattana plc, said: “To respond to the EV trend as more and more Thai people are paying attention to electric vehicles, we are cooperating with major energy business partners for the expansion of more than 400 charging slots in Central shopping centers by the end of this year, which is the highest and number 1 in Thailand’s shopping center industry. The first phase is expected to be completed by October to accommodate short-haul or long-haul trips from city to city. This helps highlight our shopping centers as a hub of nearly every province from north to south, with 37 branches in 18 provinces across the country.  The outstanding features of the EV charging points at Central are as follows: 1) The charging points are available throughout the country offering a worry-free journey. 2) Convenience, with EV charging slots for all vehicle brands. 3) Locations and charging systems are of a high standard and safe. 4) Enjoy benefits from Central Group for its eco-lifestyle marketing, with both promotions and discounts. Examples are such as first-hour-free charging when spending 800 baht and up at Central shopping centers, which is a limited offer only available in the first month of opening in order to support the use of EVs as part of Thai people’s daily life. Join us in caring for the planet and environment as we expand upon customers’ future demands into other businesses such as residences, hotels and office buildings, which is expected to contribute to the reduction of more than 5,250 tons of CO2 emissions per year for Thailand.


Central Pattana is highlighting our position as number 1 in the shopping center and real estate industry in Thailand, committed to being the first mixed-use developer to achieve ‘Net Zero’ by 2050, with continued support for clean energy in our shopping centers as well as developing eco-friendly malls to fulfil the lifestyles of green-living customers. Examples of eco-friendly malls are such as Central EastVille, Central Si Racha and Central Ayutthaya. We also have service points that promote an environmentally-friendly lifestyle such as EV-chargers, recycling stations and ‘Ting Dee’ disposal points. The company has a roadmap to reduce CO2 emissions and business pollution to net zero through a 50% reduction in energy consumption, reduction in the use of CFCs and harmful substances, and promoting the use of clean energy by 50% as well as planting 1 million trees.”

Mr. Noppadol Pinsupa, Chief New Business and Infrastructure Officer of PTT plc, said that the PTT Group via Arun Plus Co., Ltd., has expanded its charging stations for EVs under the brand ‘on-ion’, giving EV charging stations at high potential locations, with Central Pattana, the leader of Thailand’s shopping center industry, covering the whole country in order to support the growth of the EV market thereby ensuring that alternative energy is closer to all users. The company also supports Thai people using clean energy that is environmentally-friendly in the form of the ‘Green Charging Network’ via the ‘on-ion’ mobile application. The collaboration with Central Pattana is an important step in PTT’s investment in future energy innovations. It is a collaboration between Thailand’s number 1 energy company and Thailand’s number 1 shopping center developer to create sustainable future energy and ensure that EV users can travel around Thailand without worrying about running out of battery midway. EV users who use the service at ‘on-ion’ EV charging stations can be reassured that the energy comes from 100% renewable energy sources and is entirely produced in Thailand. In addition, service users, as advocates for clean energy, are entitled to many offers and privileges.

It is one of our missions to use clean energy and push the concept of e-mobility to drive the future. We see the importance of driving the economy while caring for the planet. EV charging stations are another important factor in setting the foundation for a stronger EV industry. The cooperation with Central Pattana is an important step in strengthening our potential and expanding to a more comprehensive network of EV charging stations for users, with easier access to charging stations.
