In December 2010, Technion International School of Engineering students made a visit to the Better Place Visitor's Center in Israel to test drive the electric car and learn more about this exciting global venture. Technion alumnus Shai Agassi is the founder and chief executive of Better Place, the leading electric vehicle services provider. Agassi is focused on one of this century's biggest challenges, moving the world from oil-based to sustainable transportation. Better Place is building the infrastructure and intelligent network to deliver a range of services to drivers, enable widespread adoption of electric vehicles, and optimize energy use.
