3rd, AltaTerra Research, corporate sustainability, and utility
experts will discuss how leading organizations are developing strategies, programs,
and infrastructure to support employee use of electric and plug-in electric
vehicles, and the practical implications.
PALO ALTO, California, October 18, 2011- On Thursday, November 3 at
11:00 a.m Pacific / 2:00 p.m. Eastern, AltaTerra will present the online
briefing, "Solutions for the Sustainable Enterprise:
Strategies for Employee Use of Electric Vehicles.” Experts from SAP and
the City of Palo Alto Utilities will join AltaTerra to discuss how enterprises
are developing comprehensive plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) strategies,
including guaranteeing employee PEV leases, providing fleet PEVs for short-term
use, and installing charging stations on corporate campuses.
Electric and Plug-in Electric Vehicles are receiving a great
deal of attention in the media, and initial consumer interest has been strong.
Yet EVs and PEVs require charging infrastructure. And given the time
requirement for charging, the best opportunities are while at home and at work.
To address this, some businesses and
institutions have begun installing PEV charging stations to provide support for
their employees. Some, like software giant SAP, have gone further, developing a
comprehensive PEV strategy, including guaranteeing employee PEV leases and
providing fleet PEVs for short-term use.
In this independent,
interactive 90-minute briefing, Dr. Andreas Vogel from SAP will discuss SAP's
PEV program and present the business case for corporate PEV investment. He will review SAP's current PEV
efforts and discuss the challenges of managing the program. Dr. Vogel will also present practical
steps for implementing a corporate PEV program including includes charging
station placement, the impact on employee parking, interfacing with utility
service, and the impact on utility bills.
Shiva Swaminathan from the City of Palo Alto Utilities will discuss the
role utilities play in helping to structure and implement corporate PEV programs
and infrastructure, how the City and Utility are facilitating the adoption of
PEVs, and ways of mitigating PEV's impact on the utility grid.
Don Bray, President of AltaTerra Research, will provide an overview of
EV technology and market trends.
"As electric and plug-in
electric vehicles emerge in the marketplace, corporations and institutions are
facing strategic questions of ‘when, where, why and how’ to provide PEV
infrastructure for employees, as a way to materially engage employees and support
overall sustainability efforts.” said Don Bray.
