Better Place aims to reduce global dependency on petroleum through the creation of a market-based transportation infrastructure that supports electric vehicles. Better Place is building its first electric vehicle network in Israel, and among its partners has selected Denmark and Hawaii as the other two test markets due to their small size. Denmark and Israel have enacted policies, which create a tax differential between zero-emission vehicles and traditional cars, to accelerate the transition to electric cars. Better Place plans to deploy the infrastructure on a country-by-country basis with initial deployments began in 2010 and commercial sales beginning by late 2011 in Denmark and Israel.
