AMD has installed three Coulomb-manufactured ChargePoint electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at its Austin 'Lone Star' campus for employees, and plans to install additional stations at its Sunnyvale campus in spring 2011.

The Austin ChargePoint stations were supplied and installed by Verdek, the distributor for Coulomb Technologies in the Southern States.

The ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations are designed to help develop the EV market and also being installed to benefit AMD employees seeking sustainable and cost-effective commute options.

The ChargePoint networked EV charging station is managed by the ChargePoint Network and provides EV drivers the ability to locate and navigate to the charging station from any smart phone and the ability to detect charging station availability from a smart phone or Google Maps.

AMD Corporate Responsibility director Tim Mohin said, the company's EV charging stations will support the development of the electric vehicle market while providing another option for their employees to commute to work sustainably and give them the confidence they need to seriously consider an EV purchase.

Coulomb CEO Richard Lowenthal said, AMD is preparing for the future of transportation by welcoming infrastructure for electric vehicles.

"We are proud to be a part of AMD's efforts to reduce emissions, promote corporate responsibility and workplace charging," Lowenthal said.
