Grid.vc made a seed investment to fuel development of EV fast charging

Currently available EV charging stations are inflexible in their power delivery to vehicles. A charging unit reserves the maximum power it can deliver and if a vehicle cannot receive the full power the extra power cannot be delivered to any other vehicle. This leads to inefficient use of power investment as well as significantly dropped customer satisfaction as drivers waiting to get to the charging point cannot get any service, even though there would be

Grid.vc pääsee aloittamaan uuden vuoden uudesta tilanteesta. Vuoden 2022 aikana irtauduimme kahdesta sijoituskohteesta ja saimme yhden uuden sijoittajan. Nämä vahvistivat uskoa konseptimme toimivuuteen ja mahdollisuuteen tehdä uusia kannattavia sijoituksia. Tältä pohjalta tulemme vuoden aikana nostamaan hallinnoitavien varojen määrää ja tekemään muutaman uuden sijoituksen energiatoimialan murrosta nopeuttaviin teknologioihin.
