AeonCharge by Laegacy is building a personalized electric vehicle charging platform by increasing charger accessibility and allowing users to design our network by requesting charging locations.

Introduction

AeonCharge is here to revolutionize the charging scene for electric vehicles

The electric vehicle market is growing exponentially in the U.S. as we have seen a consistent market growth from 2011 to 2020. In 2018, there were 1,000,000 EV drivers, and currently, in 2020 there are an estimated 1,600,000 EV drivers in the US, a huge 60% growth in just 2 year!

Our market entry timing couldn’t be better as we build a platform for electric vehicle owners that’s more user centric and collaborative.

The Problem:

EV owners spend about 50 hours annually for planning and detouring. These inconveniences result in about 2 out of 10 EV owners returning to gas-fueled vehicles. EV owners are forced to download multiple apps to accommodate for each users’ geographic location.

So What Makes AeonCharge Special?

AeonCharge is creating an electric vehicle (EV) charging platform that focuses on increasing charger accessibility by allowing users to easily search, plan, and book chargers from multiple network providers. Aeoncharge also strives to personalize the charging network by allowing users to request charging locations. These ultimately improve the convenience of EV charging for EV owners.

Long Term Growth Opportunity:

In 2030, we are expecting a market size of $5.00 Billion TAM in the US, anticipating the boom of EV and their need for chargers, we’re looking at improving our partnerships and streamlining our services with other peer-to-peer networks so that users can easily access our chargers.

Ask:

Aeoncharge is looking to raise $105,000 to launch our platform in February 2021 for both iOS and Android users as we welcome the new age of electric vehicle charging.

Deal Highlights

  • 70% of EV owners we interviewed in Illinois and Indiana say that they will shift to our platform with the current solutions we offer from their current EV charging providers.
  • 98% of previous EV owners say they would have not sold their EV and shift back to gasoline-fueled vehicles if our solutions existed back then.
  • We are supported by two advisors who are leaders within the EV community.
  • With the rapid growth of electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States, the market share of EV charging is expected to grow at 32% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR).
  • Support the green energy movement - EV adoption rate will increase with our charging solution that addresses EV owners concerns and improves the convenience of EV charging experience.

Problem

Problem

When we asked over 430 EV owners about their experiences, we identified two main problems that hindered the convenience for electric vehicle users:

  • Lack of conveniently placed charging stations in both urban and suburban cities and towns.
  • There is a confusing number of charging apps.

Solution

AeonCharge is creating a universal platform for users to locate, book, and pay charging stations efficiently from any network. Furthermore, EV drivers have the option to request locations based on their own preferences as well to improve the convenience of charging EVs. AeonCharge request-based chargers installation contains four easy steps for users and hosts to follow:

For users:

  • User chooses location
  • Wait for an approval
  • Enjoy charging

For hosts:

  • User requests a charging point
  • Aeoncharge acquires permits from hosts (residential or public)
  • Aeoncharge shoulder upfront costs
  • Aeoncharge list locations on our platform

AeonCharge plans to market and improve multiple aspects for the electric vehicle driver. It plans to develop an app to find charging stations that will benefit the EV owners.

AeonCharge provides a platform for EV drivers to enjoy the benefit of booking, payment, and charging with one single app throughout the United States.Our app eliminates the issue of charging inconvenience through our model by building a community of electric vehicle owners who can easily find and utilize charging stations.
