Better Place has entered into an agreement with Chinese utility China Southern Power Grid to bring their battery swap stations to the Asian country.
The first phase of the partnership will bring a battery swap station and an education center to city of Guangzhou by the end of the year. By that time, more details of larger infrastructure projects between Better Place and the utility will be formalized and China will be well on its way to a booming EV infrastructure.
The State Grid Corporation of China only recently declared that it would like to see 2,300 battery swap stations in the country by 2015.
Better Place founder Shai Aggasi sees this partnership leading to a shift in Chinese EV manufacturing to switchable-battery cars for both the Chinese and international markets, which will mean more demand for Better Place's technology globally -- a true win-win for both parties involved.
