ORLANDO, Fla., – April 19, 2009 – Coulomb Technologies, the leader in electric vehicle infrastructure, and NovaCharge, a leader in the deployment of EV charging infrastructure and authorized Coulomb channel dealer, today announced that ChargePoint™ Networked Charging Stations will be on display in booth #606 April 19-22, 2009 at the Alternative Fuels & Vehicles National Conference + Expo 2009. Coulomb's family of products and services delivers a smart networked charging infrastructure for plug-in vehicles worldwide. Coulomb's ChargePoint(SM) Network addresses the charging needs of electric vehicle drivers, utilities, governments, fleet managers and parking space owners.
"The greening of fleets with electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids is a way for governments and fleets managers to reduce greenhouse gasses, save on fuel costs and make the most of the Federal stimulus package," said Richard Lowenthal, CEO of Coulomb. "A networked charging station provides the necessary infrastructure to fuel these fleets."
Coulomb Technologies has charging stations installed in some of the largest and greenest cities, including San Francisco. Coulomb's charging stations provide San Francisco, City Car Share and Zip Car fleet managers with an online Fleet Portal displaying performance data and graphs for their plug-in fleet. The networked charging stations also report greenhouse gas savings and gasoline savings to fleet managers. Coulomb's charging stations notify drivers and fleet managers when individual vehicles are overdue for charging, when charging abnormally terminates, and when charging is complete.
"Coulomb Technologies' products are ready to deploy and fully UL Compliant, allowing fleet managers to quickly realize the value of their investment," said Helda Rodriguez, president NovaCharge. "Coupled with our extended warranty and maintenance programs, fleet managers can deploy ChargePoint Network products with confidence."
Additionally, at the AFV conference, Coulomb's CEO Richard Lowenthal will present in two sessions during the conference. Lowenthal will be part of two panel discussions: "Wheels in Motion: The Promise of Plug-In Hybrid and Extended Range Electric Vehicles" and "The Holy Grail: Battery Power". The first panel discussion takes place on Monday, April 20 from 3:30 p.m.-5:00 p.m. Participants include the Florida Power and Light Company, General Motors Corporation, Project Get Ready, North Carolina University, Argonne National Laboratory and Progress Energy. The second panel takes place on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. Participants include Florida Solar Energy Center, A123Systems, General Motors Corporation, Argonne National Laboratory and Sabre Engineering, Inc.
