American Electric Power, Altair Nanotechnologies join EDTA

Washington, DC | Posted on May 22nd, 2007

The Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA) is pleased to welcome American Electric Power and Altair Nanotechnologies as its newest members. EDTA, the trade association representing battery, hybrid and fuel cell electric drive technologies and infrastructure, provides public policy advocacy, education, industry networking, and international conferences and exhibitions. EDTA's membership includes automotive and other equipment manufacturers, electric utilities, technology developers, component suppliers, and government agencies.

"The diversity of the electric drive industry mirrors the versatility of the technology itself and the numerous visions for its use in transportation." says EDTA President Brian Wynne. "Our members come from different business sectors, but they share a common vision of the enormous value and environmental benefits that electric drive transportation can provide."

"AEP expects electric drive to have a significant impact on our business, and we are determined to be ready for that impact," says Larry Dickerman, Director of Distribution Engineering Services for AEP. "We look forward to working with the other utilities in EDTA, and association members from other business sectors, as we explore options relating to electrifying transportation. This is an area that will help us fulfill our sustainability goals as both a fleet owner and an energy provider."

"Membership in EDTA gives us access to the major players in this growing industry," says Robert Goebel, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Altairnano. "We look forward making a strong contribution to the advancement of electric drive as it enters mainstream markets."
