STARTUP CHALLENGE: COLLABORATIVE ELECTRIC CHARGE SOLUTIONS
We are seeking collaborative solutions for electric vehicle recharging
Iberdrola is launching a new Startup Challenge in the search for startups capable of providing solutions to charge-sharing for users of electric vehicles who would like to share a charging point and/or make use of other people's charging points.
Currently, a large proportion of vehicles spend the night on the street, and their owners do not have access to their own charging point. The people that do have one find that when they are away from their usual charging point, they also need solutions for recharging their vehicles at their destinations.
On the other hand, some of the existing charging points are underutilised, and therefore available for a large part of the day (homes, business centres, supermarkets, etc.).
So Iberdrola is on the look out for cooperative recharging solutions for these users so that they can share their charge points and make use of those belonging to third parties (business or private) using technologies such as:
automated solutions for access to car parks and locked areas
online management of recharging points, etc.
Proposals will be accepted up to 28 February and consideration will be given both to domestic charging points and those located at business premises and commercial sites such as shopping, sports, business and training centres, and supermarkets, etc.
WHY SHOULD YOU SUBMIT A PROPOSAL?
Iberdrola will give the winner of the challenge financial and technical support to test their solution with the Iberdrola Smart Mobility team, with access to the resources needed to evaluate it (equipment, personnel, infrastructure, high-tech positioning, co-working areas, etc.).
New customers and investors
If the pilot project is successful, the company will include it among its mobility solutions to improve the vehicle charging station network. Perseo may also consider investing in the project.
The winning technology may be scalable to other business areas in the group.
MADRID IN MOTION
The Collaborative recharging solutions challenge is part of Madrid in Motion, an urban mobility hub launched by barrabes.biz with support from Madrid City Council and the Municipal Transport Company which produces collaborative and innovative solutions to the challenges of mobility, to ensure a positive impact on the future of cities and the lives of their inhabitants.
If your startup meets this requirement, then rise to Iberdrola's challenge!
