Interesting document from the June 2010 meeting of the Transportation Electrification Committee.

Document includes agenda, minutes, list of attendees, outline of relevant codes and standards, and copies of presentations. SAE's J1772 is only a very small part of the vehicle charging universe.

2. Nice overview of EV charging. Shows 'cartoon' view of an EV, how Level 1, 2, 3, and battery swap charging works.

These are links to Nissan, Renault-Nissan, and Automotive Energy Supply Corporation (Nissan's battery company - joint with NEC) documents that give the best info yet on the Nissan EV mission, the Leaf, the battery, marketing plans, roll-out locations and too much other good stuff to list. :D

There is a simple, but interesting, graph under the "Field Test" category that shows mileage per test vehicle. Most of the 20 vehicle's data is missing...but one is out to approximately 150,000 miles. They don't say when this was or why....but a good piece of info just the same.

Apparently a Google account is needed to access these Google-docs.
Are they available "in the wild"?

Hmmm ... I just looked around. There doesn't seem to be a way to make them open to everyone without a gmail id. Anyone knows ?

Otherwise I'll put them in some file upload site.
