EV Project reaches 24-million-mile mark

The project is currently gathering data at a rate of 100,000 miles per day. It plans to publish over 40 white papers on various topics ranging from the needs of commercial charging to regulatory issues.

ECOtality, Inc. (NASDAQ:ECTY), the project manager of The EV Project, announced today that it has collected over 24 million miles of EV operating data since the project’s inception. The EV Project is a public-private partnership, funded in part by the DOE, that has installed dozens of public charging stations in several states.

Those charging stations have rescued hundreds of EV drivers from the dreaded range anxiety (and saved almost a million gallons of gasoline), but the real goal is to gather data that will be used to guide the large-scale deployment of charging infrastructure. The project is currently gathering data at a rate of 100,000 miles per day. It plans to publish over 40 white papers on various topics ranging from the needs of commercial charging to regulatory issues.

 “The EV Project is paving the way for the future of plug-in electric vehicles in America”, stated Project Manager Don Karner. “With over 24 million miles of data collected so far, we are gathering extremely valuable insight into how to effectively and efficiently create an EV infrastructure that will help make America less dependent on foreign oil. This is just the beginning, and we look forward to continuing our work on delivering these rich data points.”
