How to Power the Electric Vehicle Revolution
It took decades to build the gas stations we needed to explosions of combustion engines on the road. We need to do that for electric vehicles if we're going to keep up with the hyperbolic surge in EVs on the road, and Gustavo has a plan.
We’re committed to leading the electric transportation revolution by building the nation’s largest carbon-neutral vehicle-charging infrastructure through vertically integrated electric charging stations, advanced networking capabilities and a superior level of customer service.
If we intend to meet our climate goals, we need to decarbonize the transportation sector. That means moving away from fossil fuels to clean energy. But cars are just a tool. Whether a car is filled with gasoline or powered by electricity, without easy access to fuel, a car loses its usefulness.
The electric vehicle market has definitely left it’s awkward teen year and is in the midst of its glow-up. (Bye-bye hybrid Prius, hello Tesla, Volvo, and Porsche). The problem is while states like California are on track to meet their target for electric vehicles on the road, they’re lagging behind on installing the infrastructure (namely charging stations) to power that many vehicles.
Thankfully, that’s how Elective Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS) comes in. This week, WSTP chats with Gustavo Occhiuzzo about his journey to founding EVCS and its sister company Green Commuter, the transformative power of new parenthood, and the gap between deploying EV infrastructure and EV vehicles.
