Google and DOE create EV charging location network

ZoomGoogle and DOE create EV charging location network
As electric vehicle charging infrastructure becomes a key consideration for governments aiming to progress the wide spread adoption of EVs, innovative, smart solutions are becoming imperative.
 
Google and the U.S. Department of Energy lead a collaboration to increase the ease with which EV motorists can locate their nearest charging stations. Google will work with the DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory to create a user-friendly, searchable database using satellite GPS to map the stations. This will be added to the DOE's existing database that already includes alternative fuel locations providing biodiesel and hydrogen. The network will provide EV charging station locations across the United States and relay the information via Google Maps. This is not entirely new territory for Google who are already involved in the sustainable energy market via subsidiary Google Energy.
 
The DOE are calling for electric vehicle and navigation systems manufacturers to contribute to and use the scheme themselves.
 
This comes as the U.S. announce further support for community-based efforts aimed at advancing the deployment of electric vehicle infrastructure and charging stations. The $5 million incentive is part of the pre-existing Clean City program.
 
For more attend Electric Vehicles Land Sea Air  External Link in June in Stuttgart, Germany. Never before has there been an opportunity in Europe for people in land, water and air electric vehicles and their components, infrastructure and test equipment to compare notes in one event. Delegates already signed up vary from Airbus, Hudson Power Sports and Hudson Yachts to Sony, the Bulgarian Electric Vehicle Association and Robert Bosch Venture Capital.
