Amply Is Accelerating the Transition to Electric Powered Fleets

For every 15 vehicle fleet we convert to electric, we substantially reduce kgCO2 emissions

CO2 1 carbon atom covalently bonded with 2 oxygen atoms. CO2 is the most common GHG after water vapor. There are natural and human activity based CO2 emissions. Because CO2 is the most common it is used as a proxy by which we measure GHG emissions. The combination of GHG emissions is commonly referred to as CO2e or CO2equivalent. This data above is based on these sources. DOE – AFDC – Vehicle miles driven.  DOE – AFDC – Avg. Fuel Economy.  | EPA GreenHouse Gas Equiv. Calculator.

AMPLY aims to smooth the adoption of electric powered fleets by optimizing the delivery of power, making refueling seamless and efficient for transit bus agencies, municipal and private fleets.

About Amply

AMPLY is redefining the EV charging market for private and public fleets, including autonomous driving fleets, transit bus agencies, municipal and private fleets. We are building the next level of charging as a service, taking complete ownership and control of the charging infrastructure, the scheduling of the vehicles, the cloud platform and the utility meter – in order to provide the highest availability and resilience in the market. In this way, we will accelerate the adoption of electric powered fleets by optimizing the delivery of power and making refueling seamless and efficient.

In a high-powered application like vehicle fast charging, the difference between controlled, optimally balanced vs unrestrained EV charging could be 3x in cost from your local utility. Even more importantly, EV fleets, in particular when part of critical and close to real time business processes (for example in autonomous fleets) need to be scheduled for charging in specific time intervals. By taking control of the utility meter, optimizing EV charge rate and vehicle process flow, AMPLY provides the lowest cost of electric fueling possible in a given depot location or in-route stops.

Our approach is to offer charging as a service, which is unique in the industry. We offer our customers a per mile driven usage rate. AMPLY provides the bulk of the upfront capital expenditures associated with the charging platform.
