Arlington, Va.-headquartered AES Corp., a global generator and distributor of electric power, has joined four energy companies by becoming a member of the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA), an organization that represents battery, hybrid and fuel cell transportation technologies and supporting infrastructure.

This membership represents AES' commitment to invest in excess of $1 billion over the next three years in the alternative energy sector, including wind power generation, global climate change and liquefied natural gas. Through its global climate change business, AES is targeting the production of up to 40 million tons per year of emission offset credits by 2012.

Robert Hemphill, AES' executive vice president, will serve as the company's representative on the EDTA board of directors.
