reutersPeter Henderson of  Reuters writes about the EV charging industry.

On fast charging: “That’s kind of a game changer because then you can do fast charging and it’s competitive with gasoline,” said Jeff Kim, president of privately held Shorepower Technologies, which already has charging stations at truck stops to run air conditioners on big rigs while drivers sleep.”

Entrepreneur Ron Percival, of PowerUp Systems Inc., is buying Shorepower stations and plans a network of ‘e-Stations’ in Vancouver, Seattle and Toronto in time for the Vancouver 2010 winter Olympics. If successful he will expand in the Pacific Northwest and Canada.
