Craver Named Co-Chairman of Electric Drive Transportation Assn.

August 17, 2010

WASHINGTON - The Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA) board of directors recently elected Edison International Chairman and CEO Theodore F. Craver Jr. as the board's co-chairman. 

Craver succeeds John E. Bryson, retired chairman and CEO of Edison International. Craver will serve alongside co-chairman Tony Posawatz, vehicle line director for the Chevrolet Volt at General Motors.  

"Ted Craver brings to EDTA a wealth of experience and a strong commitment to advancing the electrification of the U.S. transportation sector," said EDTA President Brian Wynne. "He takes over this leadership role at a critical time for the organization. The coming year presents opportunities and challenges as the industry ramps up manufacturing of plug-in electric vehicles and advanced batteries, utilities and municipalities prepare for customer adoption, and the private and public sector work to build consumer demand."

"By ensuring the customer experience with plug-in vehicles is positive, we will encourage the widespread deployment of plug-in electric vehicles and thereby reduce greenhouse gases, other emissions and the country's dependence on foreign oil," said Craver. "As the preeminent organization focused on electrification of the transportation sector, EDTA has a historic role in bringing together policymakers, industry leaders and other stakeholders to accommodate the deployment of plug-in vehicles."
