July 23, 2020 – AmpUp would like to congratulate Forth Mobility for receiving DOE funding for the Vehicle Electrification Rides for Seniors (SiLVERS) Program! We are excited to work with Forth, the City of St. Louis, Ameren Missouri, and local partners to provide EV charging software solutions that will benefit customers and the wider St. Louis community.
The St. Louis Vehicle Electrification Rides for Seniors (SiLVERS) Project seeks to increase Electric Vehicle adoption and reduce transportation-related operating expenses for social service agencies in low-income communities.
This pilot will demonstrate:
– EV fleets can save social service agencies money on transportation expenses and improve service
– Electric vehicle charging equipment for fleets can also serve employees and community members
– How use of EVs by service agencies can accelerate regional EV adoption
– The use of tools and best practices, which can be replicated nationwide
AmpUp will provide an EV charger sharing platform to serve fleet EVs, employees and community members. We will also perform data collection and analysis to develop a model of financially sustainable fleet electrification.
“AmpUp is excited to work with Forth, the St. Louis Clean Cities Coalition, and local partners to provide EV charging software solutions that will benefit customers and the wider St. Louis community,” said Tim Gavrilovic, Head of Business Development & Co-founder of AmpUp.
The project is scheduled to launch by the end of 2020 and to last three years.
