As a leading electric vehicle charging software company, AmpUp is committed to providing easy-to-use climate tech solutions that make a real impact. This Earth Day 2023, we’re proud to reflect on the significant emissions reduction we’ve achieved so far this year, and take a look ahead at our plans to increase our impact.
AmpUp-enabled chargers have already made a significant difference. In the first quarter of 2023, our charging stations across the United States reached 1 GWh of use, resulting in 433 metric tons of CO2 avoided.
That’s equivalent to over 1.1 million miles driven by electric vehicles charged on AmpUp stations, according to the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalency Calculator. As the United States continues to electrify its vehicles, each electric car on the road represents a step towards replacing a gasoline-powered vehicle, reducing emissions and contributing to a greener future.
To further put our impact into perspective, the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalency Calculator reveals that AmpUp’s emissions reduction is equivalent to avoiding the emissions from consuming 48,677 gallons of gasoline, or from burning 484,752 pounds of coal. That’s a significant environmental impact created by AmpUp’s charging stations alone.
Through another lens, the impact from AmpUp charging stations can be compared to positive environmental activities, such as saving the emissions equivalent of 150 tons of recycled waste avoiding the landfill, or switching 16,396 lightbulbs from traditional to LED.
In ecological terms, AmpUp’s emissions savings are equivalent to the carbon sequestered by growing 7,153 trees over 10 years, or the carbon sequestered by 516 acres of forests in the United States.
At AmpUp, we’re not stopping here. We’re looking ahead and aiming to grow our impact by the end of the year. With over 3200 charging stations already implemented across the US in commercial, private, and public settings, our goal is to more than triple that number, thereby more than tripling the emissions avoided by charging electric vehicles on AmpUp’s network.
