ECOtality, Inc. (ECTY) Celebrates Blink® Pedestal Charging Stations in San Diego Metro Area

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

ECOtality, Inc., a provider of clean electric transportation and storage technologies in the US and abroad, recently celebrated its Blink® Pedestal charging station installation in San Diego in the metropolitan area. Local stakeholders, elected officials, EV drivers, and company representatives came together outside the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park, one of the five in the series of events that will be celebrating the installations of the commercial and publicly available charging stations in the EV Project markets. Balboa Park, which is located in the heart of San Diego, currently houses 10 Blink Pedestal chargers.

“San Diego has been a terrific project market for ECOtality, and its high levels of consumer and stakeholder interest make it an excellent proving ground for electric vehicles,” said Jonathan Read, CEO of ECOtality. “The Blink charging stations installed at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center and at the San Diego Air & Space Museum—as well as the commercial Blink charging stations appearing in EV Project markets nationwide—underscores our commitment to smart EV deployment and placing charging stations at locations that fit the lifestyle of EV drivers.”

“A well-planned charging network tears down a significant barrier to adopting electric vehicles,” Mayor Jerry Sanders said. “I’m proud San Diego will be one of the first cities in the nation to encourage residents to purchase EVs, and that we’ll serve as a model for other cities as they look to deploy their charging infrastructures.”

ECOtality initiated the installations of its Blink Level 2 Residential charging stations in EV Project areas across the nation in December of 2010, and has since then completed more than 1,400 installations. In the last few months, ECOtality has been very actively installing Blink Pedestal chargers in commercial and public sites. The company strives to have approximately 1,000 Level 2 commercial and public charging stations installed in the metropolitan areas of San Diego by the end of the year, along with 30 Blink DC Fast Chargers that are available publicly.

At Balboa Park, ECOtality has installed three Blink Pedestal chargers in the parking lot located outside of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center and seven charging stations located outside of the San Diego Air & Space Museum adjacent to the San Diego Municipal Gym.

“The installation of electric vehicle charging stations outside of the Fleet presents an exciting opportunity to highlight the importance of environmental stewardship to our visitors,” said Dr. Jeffrey Kirsch, Executive Director of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. “In conjunction with two current exhibitions focused on sustainability, ‘So WATT: An Illuminating Look at Energy,’ and ‘San Diego’s Water: From Source to Tap,’ we hope to add an exhibit component within the science center where visitors will be able to learn more about electric vehicles and make real-life connections to the outside charging stations.”

The event marks the culmination of almost a year and a half of planning. Locations of the public charging stations were selected utilizing ECOtality’s Micro-Climate™ planning process, which uses the input from regional partners and takes into account a variety of factors, which include traffic patterns and the locations of regional attractions, employment centers, retail hubs, as well as input from regional partners.

“This electric vehicle project signifies the State’s commitment to diversify how California uses cleaner vehicles and fuels to transport people and goods on our state’s roads and highways. Ten years from now we will look back and remember these early charger installations as the first steps in getting one million electric vehicles on the road,” stated California Energy Commission Vice Chair James Boyd.

“This is another example of how San Diego is leading the way when it comes to energy innovation,” said U.S. Rep. Susan Davis. “Electric vehicles provide a lower cost, cleaner alternative to transportation powered with expensive oil. Made possible by the economic stimulus bill, these federal investments in deploying public charging infrastructure—such as The EV Project—benefit all electric vehicle owners and manufacturers while enhancing our energy security and creating jobs for all Americans.”

ECOtality is currently discussing with private and public property owners for the installation of public charging stations, and has partnered with national retailer which include Sears, Macy’s, BP/Arco, Cracker Barrel and Best Buy, as well as leading commercial real estate company Jones Lang LaSalle. The company is also working with other EV Project stakeholders, which include SDG&E, to help choose site locations for charging stations and improve installation logistics.

“San Diego Gas & Electric looks forward to working with ECOtality, the City of San Diego, the California Energy Commission, SANDAG and other community leaders to make San Diego America’s Finest Plug In City,” said James P. Avery, SDG&E senior vice president, power supply.

The Blink Pedestal Chargers offer intelligent, user-friendly features that safely and intuitively charge EVs. They include a seven-inch interactive color touch screen and web-based delivery through the Blink Network.

“Vehicles like my all-electric Nissan Leaf, and the availability of charging stations across the county, will help move America away from its dependence on foreign oil, give San Diegans an exhaust-pipe free way to get around, and help to achieve the goals of our Regional Transportation Plan by reducing per capita greenhouse gas emissions,” said Encinitas Deputy Mayor Jerome Stocks, chair of the SANDAG Board of Directors.

ECOtality, Inc. (ETLE.OB) Debuts Networked Software Platform for Electric Vehicles

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

ECOtality, Inc. in many respects could be considered the tip of the spear in the fight to create alternative solutions to fossil fuels. This Scottsdale, Arizona-based company, a leader in electric transportation and storage, revealed today the first generation of new Internet-based software suites for advanced Electric Vehicle (EV) charging.

Developed by wholly-owned ETLE subsidiary Electric Transportation Engineering Corporation, or eTec, the new software will be shown later this week at the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA) conference, which will be held in D.C. to coincide with the Washington Auto Show, and there is currently a demonstration of the software online at TheEVproject.com.

President and CEO of ETLE Jonathan Read highlighted some of the benefits of the new software platform, such as its ability to allow EV drivers to log in and check the status of their vehicle at any ECOtality charge station, where owners can “initiate and control the vehicle charging”. The system also allows EV owners to find the nearest charging station.

Read said this innovative move forward for the Company was huge and would further “cement our role as the leading EV solutions provider”.

Convenience and cost savings are the central design concept for the new software, which – because it allows owners to program the time of day the vehicle will be charged – provides the ability to choose cheap, “off-peak” intervals for charging at times favorable to owner’s individual schedules.

With constant real-time updating via email and text messages to remind the user to charge (or if there is a change in service), and with a Geographic Information System (GIS)-based solver to help drivers identify charger locations and availability, the software platform is custom-made to address the major concerns EV users have.

Read continued to explain the benefits of the new software by pointing out its function as a transition factor, helping to ease the move from “gas to electric powered vehicles”, by empowering the end user to determine when and where to charge, “and providing them peace of mind, knowing that a way to charge is always just around the corner”.

Read also noted that the data generated from the use of the software would help the Company to better understand the needs of EV consumers, helping to “develop economically viable business models for the industry”.

The software is being developed by eTec for The EV Project, the well-known EV infrastructure expansion program, with some funding from the $100M cooperative federal grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and awarded as part of The EV Project.

One main goal of The EV Project is to create roughly 11,210 EV charging stations in major markets throughout the U.S., including: Arizona, Washington, Oregon, California, and Tennessee, where the technology will be well-received.

The software will be freely provided to participants in The EV Project, and the data generated through its use will also help to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the project itself.

ECOtality Inc. is a young company that has quickly become a known leader in clean electric transportation and storage technologies. Today the company announced that its subsidiary Electric Transportation Engineering Corporation (eTec) has been awarded $8 million from the California Energy Commission to support the largest-ever transportation electrification project.

With this $8 million award, eTec will be able to support the deployment of charge infrastructure and electric vehicles (EV’s) in the San Diego region. This will serve as part of eTec’s “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Cost Share: Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program.”

When asked about the ramifications to eTec, Don Karner who serves as the president of the subsidiary stated, “As eTec’s proposed project to the U.S. Department of Energy is anticipated to deploy up to 2,550 charging stations in the San Diego area, this additional funding from the California Energy Commission will allow for a substantial increase in the amount of charge infrastructure deployed in the region.” Karner also seemed very appreciate of the commission when he said, “We’d like to thank the California Energy Commission and the State of California for their support of the largest transportation electrification project ever and commend their strategic foresight in positioning California as a leader in electric transportation.”

The California Energy Commission awarded funds to projects that successfully received federal funds from the U.S. Department of Energy’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) Transportation Electrification Funding Opportunity Announcement. On August 5, 2009 eTec was awarded a record $99.8 million from the U.S. Department of Energy to implement the largest deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) and charging infrastructure in U.S. history.

In the subsidiary’s proposed project to the U.S. Department of Energy, eTec has formed an alliance with Nissan North America to deploy as many as 5,000 Nissan LEAF EV’s and approximately 12,750 charging stations to be located in Arizona, California, Oregon, Tennessee and Washington. This plan will spread the notoriety of the company.

Jonathan Read who serves as President and CEO of ECOtality was quoted saying, “The California Energy Commission award affirms the position of the State of California at the forefront of the electric transportation evolution and ensures that the San Diego region will have one of the most advanced EV charging infrastructures in the world. As the eTec project undertakes to make America EV ready, stimulate job creation and enhance our energy independence, this additional funding will help us achieve these important objectives.”

San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG& E), a regional partner of eTec, will play a vital role in numerous aspects of this project. When asked about the impact to their company, Debra L. Reed, President and CEO of San Diego Gas & Electric said, “As a strategic partner on the eTec project, we’d like to thank the California Energy Commission for its funding award to the transportation electrification project. With this award, we now have the resources available to make the San Diego region first in the nation when it comes to truly being plug-in ready for electric transportation.”

While there are many entities that will benefit from eTec’s award, there seems to be a consensus that ECOtality may end up becoming a major player on Wall Street. Currently, ECOtality is trading in the $0.12-13 range, but with this news and a strong and aggressive management team in place, ECOtality may be a sleeping giant that all investors dream of.

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

In the age of ever-rising traditional fuel costs, a company in Scottsdale, Arizona is making strides in eco-friendly electric power cell systems. ECOtality, Inc. (ETLY) is a technology company that is taking on the global energy challenge head-on with its focus on developing and advancing clean electric technologies.

In November 2007, ECOtality acquired Electronic Transportation Engineering Corporation (eTec), whose focus is in the research, development, and testing of advanced transportation and energy systems. Upon its inception in 1996, eTec’s mission was to support the development and installation of battery charging infrastructures for electric vehicles. Now as a wholly owned subsidiary of ECOtality, eTec will continue to specialize in fuel sources and infrastructure for hybrid and electric powered vehicles. Currently, eTec’s systems are utilized in marine and transit applications, airport ground support equipment, and in local and governmental electric vehicle operations.

In December 2007, ECOtality acquired Minit-Charger, which was a subsidiary of Edison International. Minit-Charger produces faster battery systems that are more eco-friendly and cost-efficient than the conventional charging systems currently in place. The Minit-Charger systems produce no harmful emissions and less heat during charging which helps extend battery life.

“Following our recent expansion, we have focused on efficiently integrating and capitalizing on the synergies of our subsidiary companies to streamline operations and lay the foundation for aggressive growth,” said Jonathan Read, President and CEO, ECOtality.

eTec announced today that it has completed its integration of Minit-Charger. Since both battery charging system lines are in the same niche, a merger under the eTec umbrella makes perfect business sense. It was also announced this morning that eTec’s SuperCharge fast-charging systems will be rebranded under the Minit-Charger name.

“This rebranding is a natural evolution of our objectives to provide comprehensive fast charging solutions that our customers can trust,” said Don Karner, President and CEO of eTec. “Unifying all of our fast charging technologies and operations under the Minit-Charger name leverages its strong brand recognition and allows us to better focus our sales and marketing efforts.”

Growing World Population Puts Strain on Energy Sources, Makes Renewable Energy Firms a Good Investment in the Coming Years

Friday, January 25th, 2008

With global population expected to reach 9 billion in 2050, it is sure to put an increasingly large amount of strain on already overextended natural resources. It is almost a sure thing that this pressure will cause steep inflation as the many commodities that were relatively cheap become scarce. This inflation will also no doubt make long-term bonds less attractive as interest rates will have to rise to keep up with inflation. The other side though is that many profitable opportunities exist. Those companies focused on renewable energy and recycling resources could potentially provide investors with extremely profitable investments. A few companies that are on the front of this wave include Stratos Renewables Corp. (SRNW.OB), Alliance Recovery Corp. (ARVY.OB) and ECOtality, Inc. (ETLY.OB).

Stratos Renewables Corp. (SRNW.OB), a sugarcane ethanol producer, is aiming to become the Global low cost leader in ethanol production. It basis its operations in Peru, which they believe offers the best factors of Ethanol production. The Northwest area of Peru is a desert, which hosts ideal conditions for growing sugarcane crop year-round. Peru also has an abundance of labor and direct foreign investment continually flowing into the country. The relative stability of its economy and excellent trade conditions with the US make them poised for growth. They plan to produce 150 million gallons of Ethanol from sugarcane yearly. The Company is lead by Tony Salas, an agricultural professional with many years of export experience. In addition, the management team consists of top oil executives in the area. They are currently growing their operations and are executing their strategic plan to be a fully integrated ethanol supplier from the fields to the finished product awaiting loading on ships. They offer investors a truly fantastic opportunity to get in on the ground floor.

An emerging technologies company Alliance Recovery Corp. (ARVY.OB) has developed a technology to convert used rubber material into energy and other raw materials. They estimate that US companies scrap enough rubber to produce 16,400 barrels of oil a day. This is just in the US, but global economies could easily see the benefit as well. Their technology converts the rubber to oil through a thermo-chemical process that produces no harmful bi-products. The converted oil then runs alternators, which produce electricity to supply the surrounding areas. Its conversion process also creates heat and CO2 which they us to grow greenhouse crops. Carbon Black and Steel recovered during the conversion process allow for additional revenue streams. They project that each conversion facility will earn $7 million annually in EBITA revenue. This is an excellent company with a great product that should continue to see demand rise as the population continues to rise and inflation continuously pressures energy prices.

ECOtality (ETLY.OB) is leading a Green Revolution in Renewable energies. They focus on developing and commercializing these technologies. They are working to achieve sustainable energy for future generation; this is becoming increasingly important with the population pressures and scarcity of resources. Currently, they manage four companies and numerous technologies within the sustainable energies sector. Hydrality, a technology owned by them, produces hydrogen with readily available materials, magnesium and water, in an environmentally safe way. The company also possesses America’s first Hydrogen powered bus. Another company owned by them is Innergy Power, an American manufacturer of renewable solar modules and batteries. They also operate a Fuel cell store that sells globally to Japan, Russia, Italy, and Portugal. Its company Etec is a recognized leader in transportation energy systems and is involved in a number of batter charging infrastructures for vehicles. In addition to these technologies and companies, they also manage a clean energy website designed to promote awareness of Green products. They offer investors an opportunity to be a part of the solution to sustainable energy, and hold a portfolio of promising technologies.

These three companies present Investors with tremendous profit potential. We know the world population is growing and fast. This is putting a tremendous strain on global energy resources, and the companies that seek to reduce this strain have much to gain. Investors are always looking for the next emerging industry and market. With future energy scarcities predicted, companies solving these issues look to be a sure bet.
