Through Friday, May 12, EV charging company SparkCharge will be showcasing their latest EV charging tech at DFW airport. The showcase will allow potential customers to check out their unique solutions that seek to solve the range and charging issues which deter purchases of electric vehicles.
Offering autonomous robotic wireless charging (say that one five times fast) and on-demand mobile charging solutions, SparkCharge hopes to help companies and individuals transition to EVs without anxiety. Currently, the company's Texas footprint is in Dallas and Austin.
Josh Aviv, founder and CEO of SparkCharge, spoke to the company's goals:
Clean energy solutions are the future of transportation and DFW is embracing next-gen technology by bringing future-forward solutions like SparkCharge to its employees, travelers and the public. Businesses that want to make the transition or accommodate EVs no longer need to be hindered by a lack of infrastructure; the solution exists and we're here to aid them on their journey.
Perhaps more importantly, SparkCharge believes that the Lone Star state offers unique opportunities:
Being the only state that's deregulated on energy, on its own grid, combined with the international airport levering electric technology, it makes Texas a dark horse in the environmental movement. With us not being tied to the grid, SparkCharge enables EV drivers, companies and cities in making the shift to a greener future by delivering convenient access to charging and turnkey solutions.
While Texas' the independent power grid (armchair constitutional scholars rejoice!) offers SparkCharge their unique opportunity, the state's general business-friendly environment will serve to increase growth both from corporate relocation and ground up innovation.
Developers and asset managers should be sure to keep an eye on EV-oriented services. The young industry is frothy, with constant innovation and disruption. Current EV infrastructure is certainly lacking if mass-adoption occurs, but alternative solutions to static chargers could lead to an easier solution than expanding parking areas to accommodate chargers. Regardless, EV charging will likely become a key amenity in the future.
Personally, I enjoy hearing my engine go "vroom", so I will be hanging onto my internal combustion no matter how much convenience (or torque) an EV offers.
