Breaking free from the shackles of fixed charging infrastructure, Cambridge-based Oomph EV gets ready to launch its completely mobile, EV charging ecosystem at the #COP26 fringe event held at MSIP - Michelin Scotland Innovation Park.
The Demonstrator and Showcase event set to take place on the 11th & 12th November aims to showcase products, technologies, and services of the future, within the Sustainable Mobility and Decarbonisation sector. Something that fits very well with Oomph EV and their net-zero, mobile EV charging ecosystem.
In the age of convenience, online shopping, and subscription service expansion, mobile EV charging with Oomph EV and their partner networks are set to join the on-demand revolution, helping remove barriers and accelerate EV uptake.
A mobile system that is 100% focused on putting the customer first.
The Oomph ecosystem will enable partner networks to offer a service that not only provides the convenience of a top-up charge whilst out shopping, in a business meeting, or parked at the station but also tackles range anxiety head-on. Backup service for emergency zero mile recovery situations or the longer or more rural trips where fixed charging infrastructure is limited or plagued by unreliability.
The goal is simple. To allow the customer to decide when and where to receive a charge top-up.
No longer constrained by fixed location charge points, having to queue for space, and while away time in locations with next to no facilities, the technology puts the customer first by allowing them the freedom of choice – when and where to charge. It will also provide a convenient option for multiple EV car households where the option to charge overnight can only be utilised by one family member and open up the option for a mobile ‘at home’ charge for the significant number of households who have no direct access to a permanent ‘at home’ charge unit.
A service that comes to you
At a basic level, the technology is a complete eco-system comprising of both software and hardware containing a battery power pack with inverters and smart power electronics run by end-to-end software. Charge is uploaded from the grid using renewable energy supplies, transported in electric vehicles, and as and when required, discharged to the customer’s EV.
With three systems in the pipeline, Oomph EV is set to fill a very much-needed gap in the marketplace. Akin to a digital 5 litre fuel can, the smaller 14kW has been designed for roadside recovery, to get EV users back on the road quickly, whilst the 35kW and 50kw charge systems are aimed at large service providers. Fleet management, last-mile delivery solutions, and local authorities based in rural areas.
Oomph EV will enable those who wish to offer a paid EV charging service the smart box technology to deliver on-the-go charge. Roadside recovery, energy suppliers, car dealers, and vehicle manufacturers keen to increase EV sales, and fleet operators looking for innovative solutions to keep their fleet moving as they switch to Electric vehicles. Perfect for last-mile delivery logistics who, with the likes of Arrival pioneering the commercial EV space, can have confidence in keeping their vans moving. Using these networks of electric vehicles charged by renewable energy, the smart box unit will be transported directly to the location of choice to provide pre-ordered, on-demand, AND emergency backup charging.
With a smart box charging solution capable of providing 40 miles range in just 12 minutes, and up to 10 charge deliveries per working shift, Oomph’s mobile power unit will help dissolve range anxiety, drive forward ‘last mile’ EV delivery solutions, whilst offering the convenience and flexibility that the modern consumer craves.
Oomph EV is truly leading the charge in providing a net-zero, mobile EV charging solution that can be delivered to customers and business EV operators alike, anytime, anywhere. Part of Cambridge Cleantech and nominated for the longlist #21toWatch, the future is looking very positive for the Oomph team.
