An electric car is often referred to as a second car and not suitable as the primary car for a family. This statement was probably correct only a few years back. However, as technology progresses, data on driving patterns are collected and first-hand experience from EV drivers are gained, we can conclude that this is not the case. The electric car is the future – it can take you literally anywhere with electricity and can work as the primary car in most cases.
Meshcrafts has over the last years grown from a startup with an idea of solving charging challenges on several levels to now being a software house with one of the most advanced platforms for controlling charging of electric vehicles. The SmartCharge platform is developed for the future of e-mobility taking into account the needs of all stakeholders in the market, from the ev-driver via the charge point operator to the grid owner.

In the effort of reducing green house gases and local air pollution, countries have implemented different incentives for e-mobility to reach these goals. The incentives vary, but are mostly about reducing the costs of buying EVs. However, there are some other creative incentives.

Do you know what kind of benefits you get with an EV? Meshcrafts would like to help inspiring more people to go with the green alternative. In the following, you can read more about the most important benefits of EVs.
Oslo, the capital of Norway, is considered to be a paradise for start-ups. There are many events such as ”Startup Weekend Oslo” three times a year and ”Mesh afterwork” every month where founders with new ideas and big drams can come to get in touch with other founders and investors and hopefully start the process of making the dream come true. Oslo is also considered to be a marvel of the technology world. Well-known products such as the popular browser called Opera and the fast-growing, game-based learning application and website Kahoot was born here.
Meshcrafts are excited to announce that Alexander Gjerde will strenghten our sales team.

On September 19th Meshcrafts had the pleasure of presenting our SmartCharge solution to Daimler AG at the Mercedes plant in Bremen.
Mercedes is stepping up their focus and production on electric vehicles. In connection with this the need for a charging infrastructure at the different plants is needed. This should cover the needs for all fields at the factory, from production via testing, storage and new car delivery to charging for employees and visitors.
Oslotech AS har åpnet ladeanlegg i garasjen på Forskningsparken i Oslo. Her er det installert 15 ladepunkter for elbiler. Anlegget er en helt ny teknisk løsning med styring via Meshcrafts AS plattform SmartCharge.
Anlegget er utviklet med tanke på fremtidens behov og løsninger. Dette innebærer i første omgang avregning og betaling av strøm til besøkende. SmartCharge løsningen gir mulighet til å betale for forbrukt energi, m.a.o. man betaler for strømmen bilen lades med og ikke for tiden den er tilkoblet.
