Blink Charging Collaborates with Hubject to Provide Plug&Charge Across the Blink Network in North America and Europe

 

 

Miami Beach, FL, Oct. 31, 2022  — Blink Charging Co.(NASDAQ: BLNK, BLNKW) (Blink), a leading owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, and Hubject, an open IT platform provider, today announced a collaborative agreement to provide Blink customers in the United States and Europe with the Plug&Charge functionality and grow the Plug&Charge ecosystem.

The Plug&Charge feature is based on the ISO 15118 protocol, which allows a fully automated charging process, as the authentication begins as soon as the driver connects their vehicle to the Blink charging station. This allows EV drivers to leave their RFID cards and smartphone apps in their pockets providing an even more convenient charging experience for Blink users.

A Plug&Charge enabled vehicle is equipped with a set of certificates that transmit the customer’s contract data directly to the charging station providing greater security over the authentication via RFID card, app or credit card. The subsequent payment is also handled automatically through Blink Charging. By fully automating authentication, Plug&Charge creates a charging process that is very convenient, easy to handle, and entirely hassle-free for the driver.

“This collaboration will be an added benefit for EV drivers who charge with Blink chargers,” said Michael D. Farkas, CEO and Founder of Blink Charging. Mr. Farkas added that “Hubject’s Plug&Charge service will enable Blink users with vehicles capable of using Plug&Charge to charge their EVs without the need of an RFID card or using an app, making the charging experience even more convenient.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Blink Charging to offer their drivers a seamless Plug&Charge experience across their expansive North American and European networks,” said Trishan Peruma, CEO of Hubject Inc. “Creating an effortless charging experience for EV drivers lowers the barriers of EV adoption. The more straightforward the process, the more people will be convinced to join in the mobility transition.”

Beam Global Receives Sustainability Initiative of the Year Award

Beam Global wins for Flying on Sunshine world record, proving zero emissions aviation is here

 

 

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 07, 2022 — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable products and technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media, announced receiving the Sustainability Initiative of the Year award from the Business Intelligence Group in the 2022 Sustainability Awards program. The Sustainability Awards honor those people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.

Beam Global set the world record for the longest flight in a production electric aircraft powered by off-grid, renewable solar energy, proving zero emissions aviation is here.

Starting in Fresno, the Pipistrel Alpha Electro aircraft flew across Central California with stops in Madera, Merced, Modesto and Lodi before following the same flight path back to Fresno. Beam Global partnered with Pilot Joseph Oldham, Founder and CEO of New Vision Aviation, to make the trip possible. EV ARC™ electric vehicle charging equipment was rapidly deployed at several airports, and in some cases relocated during the record breaking effort, to support the multi-leg flight, demonstrating that airports can support the electrification of aviation without construction, electrical work or large utility charges.

“This historic world record marked the start of a new chapter for zero emissions aviation while breaking down the barriers to rapid adoption of commercially available clean aircraft. Our products make airport charging infrastructure available now, ushering in a new level of aviation access for rural and suburban denizens,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “There are around twenty thousand public and private airports across the U.S. and we want to make clean, impact free charging infrastructure available to all of them.”

“We are proud to reward and recognize Beam Global for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”

“I’m thrilled Beam Global was recognized for our record-setting flight. It was a defining milestone for sustainable aviation and for establishing the Central Valley as a forward-thinking region for propelling the electrification of aviation ahead at an accelerated pace,” said Pilot Joseph Oldham, Founder and CEO of New Vision Aviation. “Our goal with this accomplishment was to raise awareness of the urgent need for more clean transportation options—and show the world that it is possible.”

Non-profit New Vision Aviation sees California’s Central Valley as an emerging innovation hub for the electrification of aviation and oversees educational programs for disadvantaged youth to inspire and train them for careers in clean aviation.

Currently, 61% of electricity from the grid in the U.S. is sourced from fossil fuels and 29% of greenhouse gas emissions comes from the transportation sector according to a U.S. EPA report on Sources of Greenhouse Gas Emissions. As the momentum behind the electrification of transportation continues to grow globally, this world record highlights the coming renewable revolution of air travel ushering in a new era of clean transportation.

“We are delighted to see how the Township of Winslow is being forward leaning when it comes to the future of transportation and addressing the infrastructure needs early,” said Brendan Jones, President of Blink Charging. “With the new Blink IQ 200s, Township of Winslow residents can have confidence that their township’s charging infrastructure is well positioned to meet their charging needs today and to serve the EVs of tomorrow.”

Funding for the EV chargers was made possible through an incentive award by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) Clean Fleet Electric Vehicle (EV) Incentive Program. These awards are intended to support the purchase of eligible battery electric vehicles and EV charging equipment for local and State government fleets.

“An important aspect of this project was to expand electric vehicle infrastructure for our township while offering access to our residents,” said Winslow Township Mayor Marie Lawrence.

Blink’s IQ 200 units are among the fastest Level 2 AC charging stations available on the market, with a maximum output of 80 amps. The Blink IQ 200 chargers have been well received by leading EV industry experts.

Beam Global Awarded New State of California Contract for Rapidly Deployed Sustainable EV Charging Infrastructure Products

Beam Global Awarded New State of California Contract for Rapidly Deployed Sustainable EV Charging Infrastructure Products

 

 

 

SAN DIEGO, June 29, 2022 — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable products and technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media, announced that the State of California has awarded contract #1-22-61-16 to supply EV ARC™ sustainable EV charging systems through the Department of General Services (DGS) to Beam Global. California state, local and municipal government entities, and government entities in other U.S. states, can purchase Beam products at the California negotiated price, without having to go through a lengthy procurement or technology review process. The award is effective June 24, 2022 through June 23, 2025 and is eligible for renewal through June 23, 2027.

Use of the DGS contract is mandatory for all State of California Departments and is available for use by local California governmental agencies. The state has opened this purchasing vehicle to government entities in all 50 states that elect to use the California contract to buy Beam’s rapidly deployed solar-powered EV charging systems at the same volume price offered to the State of California. The contract includes several configurations of the EV ARC™ 2020, EV ARC™ DC Fast Charging system, the ARC Mobility™ trailer and emergency preparedness accessories. This represents an expansion over previous California contracts to include more Beam Global products than were available on previously awarded contracts.

Off-grid and solar-powered, each EV ARC™ 2020 generates and stores its own electricity, then delivers that energy to power any quality brand level 2 EV charger. Transportable yet permanent, it fits in a standard parking spot without reducing available parking and can charge up to 6 vehicles simultaneously. The ARC Mobility™ trailer is a specialized hydraulic transportation system which enables a single operator to easily relocate EV ARC™ 2020 systems. The EV ARC™ DC Fast Charging system enables DC fast charging in locations with insufficient circuity, no grid connection or excessive upgrade or power costs. The contract includes Beam’s emergency power solutions which provide a secure and reliable source of electricity for EV charging and first responders during natural disasters or other periods of utility grid interruption.

“This new contract with California is at once a powerful validation of our products which the state has been using for many years and also a strong indication of California’s commitment to electrifying transportation and using rapidly deployed, sustainable and robust charging infrastructure products that are made in the U.S. to fuel this new generation of vehicles,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “Consumers, companies and governments are adopting EVs at a faster rate than ever and yet we are still just at the beginning of this massive shift. The need for EV charging infrastructure is becoming greater and more urgent every day. Our ability to rapidly scale and deploy EV chargers without construction or electrical work and without utility bills, grid capacity constraints or vulnerability to black-outs, is becoming increasingly recognized as vital to the success of this evolution. We are busier than ever but we’re planning on getting a lot more busy.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom presented a $286.4 billion budget proposal, dubbed the “California Blueprint,” in January. The plan suggests spending $22.5 billion to address the burgeoning climate crisis in the state, allocating $6.1 billion to electric vehicle related initiatives. California also became the first state to commit to effectively banning sales of new, internal combustion engine or gas-powered vehicles by 2035. President Biden signed Executive Order 14008 and subsequent Executive Order 14057 with its accompanying Federal Sustainability Plan which calls for 100% Zero-Emission Vehicle Acquisitions by 2035, including 100% light-duty acquisitions by 2027. The bipartisan Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act (IIJA) authorized $7.5 billion to build out a national EV charging network of 500,000 chargers.

California and other state, local and municipal entities can purchase from DGS contract #1-22-61-16, and federal agencies can purchase from GSA Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006. Both contracts serve to simplify the government procurement process and make chosen solutions available at the best negotiated pricing.

Blink Charging Announces the Transformative Acquisition of EV Charging Leader SemaConnect, Further Expanding Its Network and Capabilities

Blink Charging Announces the Transformative Acquisition of EV Charging Leader SemaConnect, Further Expanding Its Network and Capabilities

 

 

 

 

  • Acquisition further solidifies Blink’s leadership position through complete vertical integration of supply-chain, engineering, and in-house manufacturing capabilities of more than 10,000 EV chargers today and scaling to 50,000 per year
  • In-house manufacturing and US-based assembly brings Blink in compliance with the Biden Administration Buy American initiatives

 

Miami Beach, FL  Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire SemaConnect, Inc., a leading provider of EV charging infrastructure solutions in North America, for $200 million subject to certain customary adjustments for working capital. The cash and common stock transaction will add nearly 13,000 EV chargers to Blink’s existing footprint, an additional 3,800 site host locations, and more than 150,000 registered EV driver members.

With this acquisition, Blink Charging will be the only EV charging company to offer complete vertical integration from research & development and manufacturing to EV charger ownership and operations. This vertical integration creates unparalleled opportunities for Blink to control its supply chain and accelerate its go-to-market speed while reducing operating costs.

Blink will benefit from SemaConnect’s in-house research & development, hardware design, and manufacturing capabilities. SemaConnect’s manufacturing facility in Maryland will allow Blink to comply with the Buy American mandates and to position itself to significantly capitalize on the $7.5 billion Biden Administration EV infrastructure bill and assist with the Administration’s goal to build out the first-ever national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers along America’s highways and in communities. The acquisition will also position Blink to assist the administration’s development of a national EV charging network that provides interoperability among different charging companies, and is user-friendly, reliable, and accessible to all Americans.

“This is a transformative acquisition for the EV charging industry and for Blink. SemaConnect is an established and well-known EV charging company with a proven track record of success, strong relationships with its site host partners in both the public and private sectors, and best-in-class technical capabilities,” said Michael D. Farkas, Founder and CEO of Blink Charging.

 

“SemaConnect has a robust hardware product line-up which complements Blink’s extensive software product offerings. This includes our multi-language and multi-currency network, allowing Blink to have an EV charging station for any location across more than 20 countries and expanding,” said Farkas. “In addition, we are particularly excited about the DCFC charger being developed by SemaConnect. These efforts allow Blink to significantly accelerate our DCFC speed to market while drastically reducing our R&D costs,” said Mr. Farkas.

Blink intends to transition SemaConnect’s chargers to a single state-of-the-art network developed by a joint engineering team, which nearly doubles with this acquisition. The addition of the SemaConnect hardware will accelerate Blink’s expansion across multiple municipalities and geographies, including California where SemaConnect chargers already comply with local requirements for swipe credit card functionality.

Founded in 2008, SemaConnect is a market leader with a diverse suite of products, including Level 2 and DC Fast chargers, and charging-as-a-service program which provides a full package of EV charging solutions. SemaConnect’s hardware and software solutions reach a wide range of critical EV charging customers across municipal, parking, multifamily, hotel, office, retail and commercial in the U.S. and Canada. Major customers include CBRE, JLL, Hines, Greystar, AvalonBay Communities, Cisco Systems, General Electric, among others.

Mahi Reddy, Founder and CEO of SemaConnect, said:  “Like Blink, SemaConnect has been a leader in the EV charging industry since its early days, and the combination of our expertise will enable us to scale the deployment of EV infrastructure even more quickly and efficiently. We are excited to join Blink as we charge ahead in transforming the EV charging industry with flexible, reliable, and innovative solutions for customers around the globe.”

“With complementary values, business models, and equipment, SemaConnect was an ideal acquisition target for Blink. This acquisition brings to Blink top talent from the industry. By adding the SemaConnect team to its ranks, Blink is building an industry leading EV charging company. We welcome the SemaConnect team to the Blink family,” said Mr. Farkas.

“With this acquisition and Blink’s recent past acquisitions, including EB Charging and Blue Corner in Europe, we have significantly expanded and strengthened our position as a global leader in the EV space,” said Mr. Farkas.

Mahi Reddy from SemaConnect is expected to join the Blink Board of Directors.

The SemaConnect acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions.
