GPSC allots B1.1bn for batteriesGlobal Power Synergy Plc (GPSC) is developing the country's first production plant for semi-solid batteries in Map Ta Phut, Rayong, with a project worth 1.1 billion baht. "For vehicle batteries, GPSC plans to focus on public vehicles such as tuk-tuks and buses," he said. "GPSC plans to increase battery capacity to 2 gigawatt-hours in coming years, so the cost will fall below $100 per KWh," he said. The Eastern Economic Corridor and new smart city development will beef up demand for batteries and ESS technologies, said Mr Chawalit. "Once the regional market is established, GPSC plans to become an energy solution service provider for renewable energy and smart city developer," he said.
