In an an effort to accelerate the adoption of electric environmentally-friendly vehicles through initiatives such as RechargeIT. As consumers embrace electric vehicles, Google also been adding information to Google Maps to help users find charging stations. Just search on Google Maps for "ev charging station" plus the appropriate area, for example, "ev charging station near mountain view ca."

To add more charging stations to Google Maps, the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are working to make more data available.

NREL has now launched the GeoEVSE Forum to help develop a detailed, accurate database of electric vehicle charging stations.

If you represent an automaker, an electric vehicle charging station manufacturer or installer, an EV consumer group or any other interested party, you can join the GeoEVSE Forum by visiting this site.

As always, you can use the Report a problem tool to inform us of any corrections.
