Oregon Electric Vehicle Group Seeks $2.45M for Spark Industry
The Oregon Roundtable for the Electric Vehicle Industry announced Thursday it is seeking $2.45 million from the Oregon Innovation Council to hire staff and establish a formal group to nurture the electric vehicle industry here.
The group, which goes by OREV, submitted a proposal to the council in response to a request it made for industry innovation initiatives.
There's been no shortage of activity around electric vehicles in Oregon. The list of electric vehicles to be tested in the Portland market continues to grow (Navistar's eStar truck, Mitsubishi iMieV, Nissan Leaf, the electric Smart Car, the plug-in Toyota Prius, to name five). Efforts from Portland General Electric, Portland State University and ECOtality North America are underway to build out and test the electric car charging infrastructure.
