Design Project 1 | Service / EVs Charging System

Journal Entry For
Project 1 - Domain / Area of Opportunity

The domain that I’d like to focus on is….

I would like to focus on electric vehicles charging systems, more specifically on the payment systems for the charging sessions.

This area is important/interesting to me because….

This area is close to my heart since I use an EV and have been involved for 8 years on the EV scene. As a user, I have experienced the multiple problems of the EV charging experience. There are multiple networks, multiple energy providers and tons of charging cards needed to make to your destination.

Through conversations with people from different ages and walks of life I have noticed their biggest fear about changing to an EV is how to charge and if they will ever make to their destination with so many complications on today’s networks.

I would love to solve this problem so people can confidently make the change and adopt a more sustainable transportation mode.
