Here at Energy Matters, we love a worthy cause!
FIMER Australia, in celebration of World EV Day and the launch of their new electric vehicle charging range in Australia, is giving back to Australia’s deserving non-profit community.
The company, a leading player in the global EV charging market, will be donating electric vehicle chargers to two not-for-profit community groups in Australia who are passionate about sustainability and the future of e-mobility.
Applications will open today (September 9th).
FIMER’s solution to Australia’s problem of EV ‘range anxiety’
Despite COVID-19 and a decrease in overall vehicle sales, the sale of electric vehicles has continued to grow in Australia, according to industry reports. In addition, there has been an increase by over 20% in the number of electric vehicle charging stations across the country – and, with this uptick in EV adoption, the demand for charging infrastructure will only continue to increase.
Jason Venning, Country Manager of FIMER Australia, highlighted, “There is a lot more to be done at a local, state and federal government level to drive the growth of electric vehicle adoption in Australia but some of the incentives being offered now will give it a healthy kick-start. Investing in highway charging infrastructure and introducing electrical vehicle chargers now at the home, office and in public areas will help minimise consumer fears about range anxiety and encourage the consideration of an electric vehicle as their next purchase.”
Since 2017, FIMER has been working with major electric mobility companies in Italy to create and produce charging equipment for electrically powered vehicles. To date, more than 35,000 charging stations have been supplied and distributed by FIMER.
FIMER range of AC and DC charging platforms include the FIMER FLEXA AC Wallbox, FIMER FLEXA AC Station and FIMER ELECTRA (Fast) DC Station. These solutions come in a range of power sizes and functionality to meet the diverse needs of users seeking solutions for private, public and commercial use.
Applications now open: receive an EV charger for your non-profit community group
Is your community group passionate about sustainability? Interested in Electric Vehicles and the road to a ZERO carbon future? FIMER Australia is inviting you to register now for a chance to receive one of two FLEXA AC Wallbox EV chargers at your organisation’s premise. The application form is open from Thursday, September 9 (World EV Day) until Thursday, September 30. The FIMER team will review the applications and announce the two winners in October 2021.
Applications will be judged based on responses to the following questions:
- What your organisation does to support the community
- Why your organisation needs an EV charger
- Does your organisation have solar installed at the premise
- What does sustainability mean for your organisation
“FIMER is excited to be bringing its electric vehicle charger range to Australia,” said Venning. “We are proud to support the Australian community and we are looking forward to donating these EV charging systems to two community groups who are passionate about sustainability and the future of e-mobility.”
The FIMER FLEXA AC Wallbox being donated is a quality charger manufactured in Italy with the outside casing made using 100% recycled materials. It is ideal for private or small public facilities and is available with either a T2 cord or a T2 or T3A socket. It has three connectivity configurations with four power sizes to choose from, making it suitable for a wide variety of applications.
This isn’t the first time that FIMER has stepped up to contribute to a worthy cause, previously donating one of their best-selling 5 kW UNO solar inverters to help a Brisbane family with a critically unwell 7-year-old daughter.
