Major U.S. Companies Pledge to Install EV Charging Infrastructure

February 4, 2013

The U.S. Department of Energy announced that 13 U.S. employers and eight other stakeholder groups have joined the Workplace Charging Challenge, which is designed to provide access to vehicle charging stations at places of employment. The program’s goal is to increase the number of charging stations that employers have installed tenfold within five years.

Companies that have joined this effort include 3M, Chrysler Group, Duke Energy, Eli Lilly and Company, Ford, GE, GM, Google, Nissan, San Diego Gas & Electric, Siemens, Tesla, and Verizon. Stakeholder organizations that have pledged their support for this effort include the California PEV Collaborative, CALSTART, Electric Drive Transportation Association, Electrification Coalition, International Parking Institute, NextEnergy, Plug In America, and Rocky Mountain Institute.

Pledging to this initiative commits each organization to assessing its workforce’s plug-in electric vehicle charging needs and then to developing and implementing a plan to install workplace charging infrastructure at a minimum of one major location.
