Charge your electric vehicle Anytime Anywhere

IF WE PROVIDE MOBILE ELECTRICAL CHARGERS WHEREVER REQUIRED, WE WILL DRIVE ELECTRIC VEHICLE ADOPTION

Earth is warming up, natural disasters are more frequent and imminent and destructive, and citizens of the world are slowly but steadily inching towards a new found reality about investing in the well-being of their future generations to come. The renewable energy share of total final energy consumption gradually increased from 16.6 per cent in 2010 to 17.5 per cent in 2016. Although much faster change is required to meet climate goals, in there is a change underway, more so in automobile industry that has witnessed emergence of new players and equations, all set to disrupt a hitherto traditional industry dominated by giants and legacy. 
 

A portable and ultrafast charging unit for electric vehicles

BREAKTHROUGH IDEA

SparkCharge makes a modular, portable charging unit that can charge an electric vehicle ultra-fast, 1 mile every 60 sec. The compact chargers can be delivered to an electric vehicle owner on demand via any service company. This creates a mobile on-demand charging infrastructure allowing EV to charge anywhere. SparkCharge is a scalable solution that ends EV range anxiety, and creates a charging infrastructure solution at a fraction of the cost, and a much faster implementation rate.

Emergency roadside services is a huge and growing market. And here comes SparkCharge! Instead of towing an EV with a dead battery, a service provider can use SparkCharge’s system to charge it up wherever it is. “It saves time, money and manpower,” says Josh. Using SparkCharge’s portable charging unit, a service provider can charge an EV at a rate of one mile per minute of charging. Ina about 10-20 minutes, an EV in distress can be sufficiently be charged to take another day’s journey towards its final destination or make it safe back home
 

SparkCharge

SparkCharge is partnering with service providers to create an infrastructure where an EV owner can receive range at the push of a button. Their charging units are:

Modular: SparkCharge’s battery units can be stacked on top of each other, increasing the amount of range delivered.

Truly Portable: Our units are able to fit in the trunk of any car. As a result, our partners will be able to carry plenty of range with ease.

Powerful: The EV will be charged at a rate of 1 mile every 60 seconds, which is 14x faster than level 1 charging, and 6x faster than level 2 charging.
 

BENEFITS TO USE THE 3DEXPERIENCE® PLATFORM

SparkCharge started off by using SOLIDWORKS for its design-to-manufacturing process. It talks seamlessly from their design studio to manufacturer’s machines. Using SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal functionality allows them to visually assess if a given designed part is manufacture-able or not. This saves time, effort and cost cycle after cycle and ensure a robust Design for Manufacturing (DFM) workflow. 

SparkCharge

“We love the way we can leverage the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE® Platform to optimize each stage and aspect of our design, engineering, manufacturing and marketing processes. Simulation Process & Optimization, and Fluid Dynamics Engineering roles help run iterative tests on our core functionality. Using Structural Mechanics Engineer role we can optimize our future designs to achieve a better and leaner form-fit-function”. 
SparkCharge is exploring how CATIA 3D Modeling tools on the 3DEXPERIENCE® Platform can facilitate digital prototyping, combined with digital analysis and simulation, so that their product development team may virtually create and analyze our product in its operating environment.

COLLABORATIVE & COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE to Ensure Success part 

As per SparkCharge, “Using Dassault Systemes’s collaborative tools has facilitated fluid communication among engineers across geographies and cultures - a critical benefit for a small, localized, over-worked team like ours that is growing rapidly”. 

NETVIBES helps SparkCharge aggregate content from across the social web alongside enterprise data, analyze business metrics in their social context and engage in real-time insights-driven decision-making. This enables them to gain new insights into their industry, market, and customers- current and future. These are fluid forces that ultimately will shape the next product versions that SparkCharge with come up with.
