The demand for electric vehicles is expanding in the United States. Through the Workplace Charging Challenge, recently announced by President Obama, the Department of Energy is joining the effort to increase access to charging stations in the workplace, thereby increasing the affordability and convenience of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs).

Bloomberg got ahead of the curve with the installation of an electric car charger in our Skillman, New Jersey, office in April 2012. This installation had the desired effect of swaying a number of employees to purchase alternative fuel vehicles. In a survey conducted by the Sustainability team, 55% of the employees who responded said that the car-charging station might yet influence their decision to purchase a PEV.
