Beam Global and Volvo CE Announce Partnership to Offer Off-Grid EV Charging Systems with Volvo Electric Construction Equipment

245 Volvo CE Dealer locations in North America can now bundle EV ARC™ transportable charging systems with Volvo compact electric construction machines through the Extended Offer Program

 

 

SAN DIEGO, July 26, 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 a partnership with Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) that allows Volvo CE’s 245 North American dealer locations to bundle Beam EV ARC™ off-grid charging systems with a purchase of Volvo electric equipment. This joint offering enables construction sites to rapidly deploy EV charging, without the requirement for electrical work, utility grid connections or fossil fuel generators, to power zero-emissions construction equipment that runs on the sun and does not generate a utility bill.

“The construction industry has the opportunity to future-proof its business against noise, carbon emissions regulations and volatile fossil fuel costs by adopting electric machines,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “By providing our sustainable EV charging systems alongside Volvo’s best-in-class electric machines, we are enabling that transition in the fastest, cleanest and most scalable manner available. We’re proud to partner with Volvo CE in electrifying the construction business.”

Volvo CE currently offers five models of electric machines in North America, the L20 and L25 Electric wheel loaders, and the EC18, ECR18 and ECR25 Electric excavators. Now Volvo dealers can bundle transportable, off-grid solar EV charging systems with electric machine orders. Together, the EV ARC™ and Volvo electric machines produce zero emissions, significantly reduce noise levels and lower energy costs, making them ideal for construction sites where emissions regulations, noise ordinances or the risks of indoor air pollution limit the use of diesel generators and construction equipment.

“The Volvo CE line of zero-emissions construction equipment can now be charged with a zero-emissions energy source provided by the EV ARC. Beam Global shares our vision to electrify mobility worldwide, a critical step towards mitigating climate change and reducing noise and air pollution,” said Ray Gallant, VP Product Management and Productivity at Volvo CE. “The construction industry is ready for an energy transition that reduces emissions and improves machinery’s performance, longevity and usability. We’re committed to an electric future and view Beam Global as a strategic partner on this journey.”

Beam Global’s EV ARC™, the fastest deployed and lowest-cost EV charging system on the market, is the ideal solution for Volvo CE’s electric machines. Compact and easily transportable, the EV ARC™ system can be set up and ready to use in minutes. The EV ARC™ is fully autonomous, meaning it generates, stores and delivers electricity independent of the grid. Whether the project is in a remote nature preserve or a densely populated city with strict zoning rules, the solar-powered EV ARC™ can be deployed without any electrical work or permitting.

The offer is available through the Volvo dealer network, an already trusted partner, giving partners an established convenient single point of contact for purchase. Because the EV ARC™ is part of the Extended Offer Catalog, Volvo Financial Services can be utilized to lease or finance the bundled EV ARC™ and compact electric machines with flexible financing options.

McKinsey & Company estimates that construction is an $11 trillion industry that accounts for 13% of global GDP. The global construction equipment market is projected to grow from $142 billion in 2021 to $224 billion in 2028 according to Fortune Business Insights. The United Nations Environment Programme finds that the buildings and construction industry accounted for 38% of global carbon emissions in 2019. With many governments aiming to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, electric machinery will become essential. Residential and commercial builders and equipment rental companies are likely to add electric vehicles to their fleets. Federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of the Interior and the U.S. Department of Agriculture already use electric machines in remote, environmentally sensitive areas.

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.

Fleet Advantage Celebrates Air Quality Awareness Week By Helping Corporate Transportation Fleets Reduce Emissions

 

Innovative Solutions Help Modernize Fleets So They Can ‘Be Air Aware & Be Prepared!’

 

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (May 4, 2022) – Air pollution is one of the world’s largest health and environmental problems, and is one of the world’s leading risk factors for death, attributed to an estimated 11.65% of deaths globally. As a leading innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing, and life cycle cost management (LCCM), Fleet Advantage recognizes Air Quality Awareness Week 2022 (celebrated May 2 – 6) by offering complimentary Emissions Scorecards for corporate transportation fleets in its ongoing efforts to promote better air quality.

 

Each year, the NOAA National Weather Service, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Forest Service, and U.S. Department of State join the EPA to recognize and celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week. Its theme this year is “Be Air Aware & Prepared!”, and the goal is to promote events that increase air quality awareness and encourage people to check the Air Quality Index (AQI) daily.

 

“Since the day we opened our doors, our company has been focused on bringing about change to the industry through lower carbon output and cleaner air quality,” said Katerina Jones, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Fleet Advantage. “Our innovative programs illustrate the deep commitment we have to helping our corporate fleet partners serve as industry leaders while driving significant change for the benefit of our nation’s air quality.” 

 

Through the pioneering efforts of Fleet Advantage, the transportation fleet industry is now paying closer attention to their truck’s Life Cycles to understand where they can drive sustainability measures by optimizing replacement cycles. Rather than extending the truck’s use for several years, companies are leveraging Fleet Modernization Studies and the company’s Emissions Scorecards, that scrutinize truck’s performance data and economic factors to determine an optimum procurement and disposal strategy.

 

As part of the comprehensive Fleet Modernization Study, the Emissions Scorecard reviews the entire fleet by year, make, model, and compares fuel and mileage data and provides detailed information on CO2 reduction in metric tons and gallons of fuel saved, each time the truck was replaced, as well as forecasted savings.

 

Fleet Advantage customers operate fleets with lower cost per mile, a reduced carbon footprint and improved safety and driver morale by maintaining their fleet’s average life at about 2-3 years. This helps compliment ESG strategies for its customers in their goal to report to regulators and critical stakeholders. 

 

In March, the company announced a new program to help corporate truck fleets certify their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) output, as recently mandated under a proposed rule issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Fleet Advantage is the only finance lessor that has been certifying such measures for a decade with a focus on tractor trailer fleets that operate high annual mileages (MPY).

HONK and Sun Country Highway Partner to Create End-to-End Paid EV Charging Solution

Streamlined paid EV charging is coming to more parking locations across North America

 

 

TORONTO, ON, April 28, 2022 – HONK, North America’s leading provider of contactless payments for parking, and Sun Country Highway, a full service EV solution provider, announced today a partnership that streamlines the paid EV charging experience across North America. Starting immediately, parking operators and real estate owners can install Sun Country Highway EV Charging Stations and run payment processing directly through HONK while utilizing their standard parking enforcement. This eliminates the need for ongoing networking fees and additional contracts with third parties.

“Sun Country is excited to partner with HONK and make paid EV charging more efficient and streamlined,” said Kent Rathwell, Sun Country Highway, Founder. “This partnership gives parking and asset owners greater control over their EV charging initiatives by bundling hardware, installation and point-of-sale payment processing all together into a seamless go-to-market package.”

Sun Country customers gain access to HONK’s back office portal where they can easily set up and manage EV charging rates for their charging stations; while drivers simply scan a QR code on-site and pay using a digital wallet (Apple Pay, Google Pay, or PayPal) or any major credit card. Once paid, the driver can plug in and charge their car for the purchased duration.

“It’s important that we arm operators with best-in-class payment technology to better serve the growing shift towards renewable transit and mobility – this partnership allows us to do just that,” said Michael Back, HONK Founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled to partner with Sun Country and make paid EV charging better, safer and more streamlined for operators and consumers alike.”

Beam Global Awarded Federal Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

 

Program aims to accelerate the electrification of the federal fleet by making EV charging solutions easier to purchase

 

 

 

SAN DIEGO, April 27, 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, today announced the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Office of Fleet Management awarded Beam Global a Federal Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) and Ancillary Services. The award provides federal agencies and organizations a streamlined procurement process to purchase EV ARC™ sustainable EV charging systems in support of the government’s initiative for the electrification of the federal vehicle fleet. Beam Global was previously also awarded GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006.

On February 10, 2022 the Federal Highway Administration published the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program Guidance. The front cover of the guidance document which provides funding eligibilities, and program guidance for implementation of historic investments in electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, uses a photograph of Beam Global’s products fast charging an EV in a California rest stop. There are no other photographs in the document. Some in government are calling for at least 25% of all EV charging stations to be supplied by locally generated and stored electricity which continues to operate during grid failures.

The federal fleet is comprised of approximately 657,500 vehicles. Last year 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. This will prioritize and accelerate a Federal Clean Electricity and Vehicle Procurement Strategy, calling for clean and zero emissions vehicles (ZEVs) for federal, state, local and tribal government fleets, including vehicles of the United States Postal Service.

“Our made in America products are rapidly deployed without construction or electrical work. They are highly scalable, clean and sustainable, and provide a source of fuel and emergency power during utility grid failures and without a utility bill. They are also ideal for providing EV charging in highway corridor locations where grid availability might be scarce,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam Global. “We offer the U.S. federal government the fastest route to hitting its laudable and ambitious EV charging infrastructure goals. It makes perfect sense that we have been awarded this new contract and that we are on the front cover of the NEVI guidance document.”

Transportation accounts for roughly 29% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) or approximately 6,558 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent. The federal fleet’s approximately 657,500 vehicles generated an estimated 3.4 million metric tons of GHG emissions. This program presents the perfect opportunity for the federal government to lead by example in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by moving to a zero-emission fleet.

360kW in a charger no bigger than a suitcase: Gravity’s true fast charging tech solving the speed, space and power challenges holding back EV adoption in big cities

View photos and specs of Gravity’s new charging equipment

NEW YORK, April 14, 2022  — Gravity, the pioneering electric vehicle infrastructure & fleet start-up, today debuted its new urban fast-charger (TFC-C1) at the New York Auto Show that solves the speed, space and power challenges impeding EV adoption in urban areas.

At 360kW, Gravity’s device delivers a faster charge than any other equipment on the market, while sized to fit virtually in any constrained indoor parking space, with floor, wall, and ceiling mounting options. Gravity is installing 24 of the new chargers at its Manhattan Plaza public charging hub on 42nd Street this spring, where they’ll serve the public and Gravity’s growing fleet of EV yellow taxis.

Gravity’s fast-charging equipment also solves one of the key constraints holding back EV adoption: the high costs of power.  Because electric bills are largely driven by peak-demand charges, adding high-powered EV charging to a site can dramatically increase electricity costs. Gravity’s charging system continuously balances the power demand from each vehicle with the demand from other site uses, while flexibly allocating power to chargers and managing total site peak-demand. This system ensures the largest driver of electricity bill costs holds roughly constant, while supplying each vehicle with the maximum power it can handle, lowering the cost of EV charging and helping smooth demand on the grid.

“We have redesigned this equipment from the ground up to solve the big problems facing EV charging today. Not only can we offer our partners equipment that’s 50-times faster than the most common chargers, we can actually bring their electric bills down in the process—all while making it easier for the electric grid to handle the growing demands of EV charging. This is going to revolutionize the way big cities like New York approach charging infrastructure and the broader transition to clean energy,” said Moshe Cohen, founder and CEO of Gravity.

Gravity’s new chargers are being exhibited at the NY Auto Show alongside two new advanced EV yellow taxis from its growing fleet, both of which are now fully licensed to serve on New York City streets.

Gravity’s Fast-Charger

Power: 360kw

Size: 39in (length) x 18in (width) x 8in (depth)

Mounting: Floor, ceiling or wall mount

Cables: Liquid cooled CCS cables (>500amp) with proprietary cable retraction systems for ease of use without the mess and risks of exposed charging cables.
