ZipCharge announces alliance for portable wireless system

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 12 May 2022


ZipCharge, which is planning to launch a portable EV charger, has announced a strategic partnership with ICEE Managed Services and Graphite to develop mechanical and electrical systems for GoHub, which it says is the world's first portable wireless charging system for public use.

In order to meet the demand for convenient, flexible, and low-cost energy, the GoHub hosts multiple ZipCharge Go EV powerbanks. The London-based startup plans to deploy 100,000 GoHubs around the world by 2030 as part of the global roll out.

ICEE Managed Services and Graphite are both key strategic partners for the development, production, and market launch of the GoHub charging system. Both the companies have a cumulative experience of eight years of experience in engineering, manufacturing, and installing public infrastructure, including Brompton Bike Hire docks throughout the UK.

Jonathan Carrier, ZipCharge’s co-founder “We are delighted to have found two strategic partners in ICEE and Graphite. Together we will deliver the GoHub, a revolution in public charging provision, providing a community-based solution that can be installed anywhere, at a much lower cost and at a much faster rate, while enabling any parking space to be a charging spot. The ability to roll out Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure at speed is essential to allow national and local governments to deploy it at a faster rate where it is needed the most to support mass EV adoption. EV owners will now have the choice to purchase the Go outright, on subscription or rent one through the GoHub.” 

Paul Harris, MD, ICEE Managed Services “We welcome the opportunity to be working with ZipCharge in taking the GoHub from its original concept into the pre-production design stage of its development. Our modern manufacturing facilities will provide a total turnkey support to deliver the Go Hub product to market”

Cory Carver-Grenside, Director, Graphite, said “Graphite are delighted to be working with ZipCharge on such an original product, we pride ourselves on being a technical solution provider to the likes of Vodafone and BT whilst developing new and innovative remote monitoring and control solutions.”
