AMPLY Power, Honored by Fast Company’s 2019 World Changing Ideas Awards for Innovative Charging-as-a-Service Business Model for Fleets of Electric Vehicles
AMPLY’s simple usage model of cents-per-electric-mile driven helps fleets migrate to electric vehicles within their fleets of truck, bus, van, and EV cars: zero capex, guaranteed ready for work every day, and fixed, budgetable cost.
[Mountain View, CA, April 9, 2019] — AMPLY Power has been awarded an Honorable Mention by Fast Company’s 2019 World Changing Ideas Awards. The awards honor businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that offer innovative solutions to the issues facing humanity. All of the finalists are highlighted in the May issue of the print magazine, which hits newsstands April 16.
AMPLY Power is innovating the electrification of transportation with a new business model for fleet EV charging. Through its Charging-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform AMPLY removes the risks and complexities related to the charging logistics of electric buses, trucks and passenger vehicles for fleet owners and operators, in exchange for predictable pricing and a guarantee that vehicles are charged fully at the start of each workday. With its one-of-a-kind offering, AMPLY simplifies charging logistics and provides certainty on electric fueling costs by handling all aspects of EV charging operations and infrastructure, and only bills fleets for the number of electric miles driven.
“As more companies and cities invest in electrification programs, we find taking the technical guesswork out of going electric is a critical step towards the mainstream adoption of electric fleet vehicles beyond the occasional pilot program,” said Vic Shao, co-founder and CEO of AMPLY Power. “In response to the challenges fleet operators face in switching to electric, we handle everything to do with the infrastructure, from the finance and installation of charging hardware, to working with the utility to upgrade electrical service to depot buildings and ensuring the vehicles are charged at night and ready to work in the morning. We’re honored that Fast Company has recognized our Charging-as-a-Service concept as a world changing idea. This award is a testament to the whole team at AMPLY and our technology and business efforts to make switching to electric a simple transition for fleets.”
