Renault-Nissan Alliance Partnering with Oak Ridge National Lab on EVs and Infrastructure

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is partnering with Nissan in Tennessee to promote the development of zero-emission vehicles and a complementary charging infrastructure. This expands the scope of an existing partnership between Nissan and the State of Tennessee, which also includes the Tennessee Valley Authority. (Earlier post.)

Nissan will introduce zero-emission vehicles in the United States in 2010 and will mass market them globally two years later.

Managed by UT-Battelle, Oak Ridge National Laboratory is the Department of Energy’s largest multi-purpose research lab, with a $400 million portfolio of energy-related projects.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance has begun ZEV initiatives in Kanagawa Prefecture and Yokohama in Japan, as well as in Israel, Denmark, Portugal, Monaco, the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Ireland and China. In the United States, the Alliance is exploring ways to promote zero-emission mobility and the development of an EV infrastructure in the State of Tennessee, the State of Oregon, Sonoma County and San Diego in California, and Phoenix and Tucson in Arizona.
