USA: Electric vehicles “go greener” with California project

Riverside, California – A new project will turn the University of California into a leader in electric vehicle recharging powered by the sun.

The Center for Environmental Research and Technology at Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering has received a US$2 million grant to build solar arrays, advanced battery storage, vehicle charging stations, an electric trolley and a grid management system to provide clean energy efficiently for “green” vehicles. The two-year project is supported by the South Coast Air Quality Management District and involves a number of public and private partners.

The funding will allow the university to install up to two megawatts of solar arrays and two megawatt hours of lithium battery storage systems at three locations on and near the campus. The solar energy will be used to charge vehicles directly at several sites on campus, and at additional sites throughout Riverside.
