Rolling out the charging stations necessary to enable wide-scale adoption of EVs is a challenging task. Though valiant efforts are being made, there are still a lot of problematic applications that could benefit from innovative solutions. One young company, FreeWire Technologies, believes it has an answer to help with scalability: batteries on wheels.
Business school and the problem with infrastructure
“If you’re trying to do scalable EV charging, you want to somehow mitigate infrastructure,” explains Arcady Sosinov, CEO of FreeWire. Born just outside Chernobyl, mere weeks after the infamous 1986 power plant explosion, Sosinov has an understandable fascination with energy. This fascination led him on the path to starting FreeWire in 2014.
