Hello Joy677,

The results of my research are as follows:

SRI International              
Dr. Iouri Balachov

Dr. Tom Tao

University of Akron          
Dr. S. Chuang

Coal Clean Energy LLC   
Alvin Duskin

American Electric Power
John M. Schneider, Dr. Eng

Sources of information:

?Present Status
There are many forms of the DCFC being pursued and patents granted.
Presentations from the 2005 DCFC Workshop indicated a number of active
participants including:
American Electric Power
Electric Power Research Institute
SRI International
University of Akron
Coal Clean Energy, LLC
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory with  Contained Energy, Inc,

A distinct attitude of competitively achievable outcomes prevails with
this group. CellTech is a start-up with SBIR funding. SARA has DOE
funding but projects development of an independent company within 5
years to pursue pilot plants. SARA has an association with American
Electric Power (AEP), which is the nation?s largest electric power
generator, and has much to be gained if DCFCs can increase fuel
efficiency at lower costs while attacking the polluting aspects of
coal use. Despite its nonprofit, R & D status, SRI International has 
an active role in developing the technology?
