Six electric vehicle charging stations will be unveiled on the campus of University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus as a part of Duke Energy’s Park & Plug Program.
“Pulitzer Prize-winning auto columnist Dan Neil recently discussed his next car in the Wall Street Journal – and it’s going to be electric.”
“Understanding how an electric vehicle works is actually much simpler than understanding how a gas- or diesel-powered car works. That’s why “The Zebra” created an infographic to help readers understand the basics of electric vehicles and how they are instrumental in changing our environment for the better.”
“Pasquale Romano, the CEO of ChargePoint, one of the world’s largest charging networks, sat down with EV writer Jim Motavalli at the recent Web Summit conference for a wide-ranging interview.”
“Tesla, Nissan and GM, have formed a coalition, together with several other EV-related organizations, including ABB, ChargePoint, Plug In America and Proterra, which advocates eliminating the sales cap and allowing all automakers to compete on a more equal basis.”
The EV Drive Coalition is made up of supporters of EVs and a reformed EV tax credit. Together we are working to ensure a flourishing, mature, cost-competitive U.S. EV market.
Duke Energy Florida is seeking EV drivers to participate in a 3 year study to better understand EV driving habits and inform investment in electric transportation.
Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have demonstrated a 120-kilowatt wireless charging system for vehicles—providing six times the power of previous ORNL technology and a big step toward charging times that rival the speed and convenience of a gas station fill-up.
EVSE solution provider Koben Systems has announced a new integrated system designed to reduce demand charges in large-scale Level 2 charging installations.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have built an electric vehicle fast charger that is at least 10 times smaller than existing systems and wastes 60 percent less power during the charging process, without sacrificing the charging time. The team is now building a version that is capable of charging vehicles more quickly, while also charging multiple vehicles at the same time.
