USA: Lawrence Berkeley Lab to install on-site electric car chargers

Workers who drive electric cars to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will soon be able to charge their vehicles at work.

The lab, in the eucalyptus-clad hills above the University of California, Berkeley, campus, plans to create about 10 parking spaces where drivers can hook up to slow (120 volt) chargers, paying a dollar a day to use them.

A single fast charging station will also be set up, the lab said.

Later, Berkeley Lab plans to add five more fast (240 volt) chargers.

Last year the lab asked its employees and found about 20 of them were regularly commuting to work via electric vehicles.

John Elliott, hired last year as LBL’s “chief sustainability officer,” wants to extend the lab’s leadership in battery research and clean technology into its daily operations.
