Zero Emission, No Hassle

EVBnB = AirBnB for EV owners

Learn how your EV charging station can help reducing CO2 emissions, local air pollution and provide you a small revenue stream.
Charging networks are not always there when you need them, they are often expensive and occupied. If you think back, it is kind of how hotels and motels were back in the days. They were often fully booked and expensive. Then came internet and AirBnB™ and today you can find a super place to spend the night anywhere for the right price.

Suitable charging infrastructure are becoming increasingly important

Nowhere else in the world you find so many electric cars on the roads as in Scandinavia. The IEA – International Energy Agency – estimated that by 2020, approximately twenty million electric vehicles will populate the streets worldwide. Reason enough for the Norwegian start-up Meshcrafts to develop a platform for all the stake holders involved in the electromobility market. SmartCharge is a real-time platform connecting charging stations, operators and EV-drivers.

Electric Vehicles as your main vehicle

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.

Preparing for the future with Management changes

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.
