Driving the Future: Aeversa’s Feature on Radio 702 for the Nedbank Business Ignite Challenge

In a recent Radio 702 interview, for the Nedbank Business Ignite competition, Aeversa shared its mission to seamlessly integrate electric vehicle infrastructure into everyday life, reduce operational costs for logistics companies, and promote green energy. Learn about Aeversa’s participation in the Nedbank Business Ignite competition and how their comprehensive approach is transforming the EV landscape in South Africa.

On 28 June 2024, Aeversa shared its vision for electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure in South Africa during an interview on Radio 702’s "Nedbank Business Ignite" segment. Here’s what was discussed and what it means for the future of sustainable transportation.

Aeversa’s Mission: Enabling Widespread Adoption of Sustainable Transportation

At Aeversa, we envision a future where electric vehicle infrastructure is seamlessly integrated into everyday life, enabling widespread adoption of sustainable transportation and fostering a cleaner, greener future for generations to come. Our mission is to be the premier EV charging partner, spearheading the nation's transition to electric mobility through innovative ecosystem solutions and strategic partnerships.

Key Highlights from the Interview:

1. Innovative Charging Solutions
Aeversa offers a comprehensive range of charging solutions, including DC fast chargers, mobile chargers, and custom financing options. These solutions are designed to meet various business needs, ensuring flexibility and scalability for future growth.

2. Driving on Sunshine
Aeversa’s slogan, "driving on Sunshine," highlights the use of solar power from warehouse roofs to charge electric trucks. This innovative approach not only promotes sustainability but also reduces operational costs for logistics companies.

3. Proving the Concept
In 2021, Aeversa started Proof of Concept (POC) trials by renting out chargers and vehicles to fleets. These trials, lasting two to three months, help large fleets understand how to integrate new technology. The results have shown that running EVs is more cost-effective than diesel for many logistics operations.

4. Strategic Implementation
The strategy involves installing chargers at warehouses where trucks load and unload, maximising efficiency. As the network grows and more EVs are added to fleets, smaller chargers will be installed at various points along logistics routes, ensuring comprehensive coverage and intercompany utilization of the charging network.

5. Future Outlook
Aeversa is committed to expanding its charging infrastructure along major routes, not just for fleets but also for individual EV users. This expansion is crucial for promoting green energy and reducing carbon footprints across the logistics industry.
