Electric vehicles have the promise of taking cars off oil, and electric vehicle batteries have the promise of making the grid more renewable. So as far as a clean tech solution that spans a lot of different sectors of the clean tech industry, EVs are really powerful.
As the former Director of Global Alliances for Utilities and Energy at Better Place, Rob Bearman was responsible for building the company's business strategy for maximizing the value of its network of EV batteries as an energy asset. During his time with the company, Bearman assessed and developed electric utility partnership opportunities based on financial opportunity, local utility market conditions, and technical feasibility. He also created and developed strategic partnerships with electricity industry partners around the world, such as DONG Energy and Enexis, based on Better Place's EV to grid integration value.
