NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 2, 2022 / Charge Enterprises Inc. (OTC PINK:CRGE), ("Charge"), consisting of a portfolio of global businesses with the vision of connecting people everywhere with communications and electric-vehicle "EV" charging, and GenZ EV LLC ("GenZ EV"), an American company dedicated to integrating the world's best technologies, services and investment solutions to help businesses navigate the transition into the era of eMobility, announced that they have designated Charge as GenZ EV's preferred infrastructure provider for EV charging solutions to provide a bespoke and seamless end-to-end EV Infrastructure for commercial, fleet, public and private sector industries, delivering battery buffered ultra-fast charging for EVs.
GenZ EV, distributor of ADS-TEC Energy (ADSE) ("ADS-TEC¨) battery-buffered ultra-fast chargers for the automotive vertical in the Americas, designated Charge as its preferred infrastructure solutions provider. Charge, through one of its operating affiliates, doing business as (DBA), Charge Infrastructure, offers end-to-end services for EV charging ecosystems, including project management, design and engineering, construction, installation, and maintenance and service. GenZ EV and Charge intends to target dealerships, dealer groups, commercial fleet, and automotive OEM's as well as retail, big-box chains, real estate conglomerates and the public sector. Leveraging their collective automotive expertise, the initiative led by both Charge's President, Mark LaNeve, along with GenZ EVs CEO Jose Valls, the two companies collectively have a leadership team comprising over 100 years of experience in OEM and dealer operations.
Charge Infrastructure's preferred designation is pursuant to a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between GenZ EV and Charge, offering custom solutions for ultra-fast charging requirements with the goal of generating cost efficiencies to support EV charging infrastructure and maximize energy flexibility. "As GenZ EV's preferred infrastructure provider, together, we provide a seamless solution for equipment and services to reduce the cost of charging from the utility provider while allowing greater EV charging flexibility, including rapid charging speeds, especially for dealerships and fleet operators," said Mark LaNeve, "Furthermore, when factoring in solar or renewable generation and layering bidirectional capabilities, the cost of running EVs, and the client's carbon footprint, could be reduced further by combining these assets into a site-wide ecosystem.
"While the demand for ultra-fast EV charging spans across all industries and sectors of society, the auto industry - specifically dealers - are at the vanguard of the transition into eMobility. I look forward to working with Charge to address the unique needs of this and other markets," said José Valls, GenZ EV's CEO, formerly Chairman of Nissan North America and of Nissan Latin America. He further stated, "Our team understands that a successful project entails more than world-class hardware, so we are focused on offering a complete 360-solution for businesses navigating the electrification landscape." Mark LaNeve added, "There is great opportunity in software, servicing, and long-term revenue-driving opportunities to consider as well. We are excited to partner with GenZ EV to design high-impact, smart, investment opportunities for EV Charging solutions."
