Oregon State University Wants to Build Fleet of Alt-Fuel Vehicles

January 19, 2009

CORVALLIS, OR - Oregon State University hopes to take a larger role in electric and hybrid car technology with the recent announcement of a zero-emission vehicle partnership between the State and Nissan North America, according to the Web site, www.ktvz.com.

The goal of the partnership is to bring zero-emission electric cars to government agencies by next year, and expand the availability of electric car charging stations around Oregon.

As the campus with the largest statewide fleet, Oregon State already has two charging stations and is building up its pool of electric and hybrid vehicles.

University officials say they would build stations for larger cars like Nissan is proposing, if the school is asked to participate in the project.

Oregon State is discussing its potential role with the Oregon Department of Transportation.

School officials say it would demonstrate the university's commitment to innovative technology and alternative fuel research.
