Verizon, DOE partner to boost electric vehicle charging infrastructure

Verizon is joining with the U.S. Department of Energy to help meet President Barack Obama’s goal of empowering the U.S. to produce plug-in electric vehicles that are as affordable and convenient as their gasoline counterparts.

The DOE’s initelp.comiative, called the Workplace Charging Challenge, came in response to the president’s announcement last year of the Electric Vehicle Everywhere Challenge, which is aimed at producing more affordable and convenient electric vehicles by 2022.

Verizon and 12 other companies will help develop and commercialize the infrastructure for electric vehicle charging stations. The stations are vital to the widespread adoption of plug-in electric vehicles throughout the U.S.

The Workplace Charging Challenge is committed to increasing the number of U.S. employers offering workplace electric vehicle charging stations by tenfold in five years.

A recent survey of some members of our Verizon Green Team, which consists of more than 10,000 employees in 23 countries, found that more than 80 percent of the respondents would be more interested in purchasing an electric vehicle if they had a place to charge it at the office.
