SemaConnect’s leading EV amenities combined with APSG EV integration model set to change future of electric vehicle charging in North America as market grows exponentially
WASHINGTON, D.C. – SemaConnect, a Blink Charging Company (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW) and leading provider of electric vehicle amenities to the North American commercial and residential property market has partnered with Athena Partners Strategy Group (APSG), a government relations and technology consultancy, to revolutionize access and convenience of electric vehicle (EV) charging amenities across the nation.
A proven leader in EV solutions, SemaConnect helps parking managers directly address the growing demand for easy-to-use and widely accessible EV charging stations. Combined with APSG’s proprietary EV charging model which provides a seamless phase-in process, SemaConnect’s EV chargers will allow municipalities and education organizations to improve their visitor experience. They will also be able to earn green building value such as LEED certification and create an additional source of revenue generation.
“We’re excited to partner with APSG,” said Tony Sargent, SVP Sales at SemaConnect. “This type of innovative collaboration is instrumental in helping us, and the industry, tackle the massive growth ahead.”
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, EV sales grew 85 percent from 2020 to 2021 while plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) sales increased by 138 percent in the same period. As the growth trend continues, facilities’ managers will need to meet the mounting demand from EV drivers.
“The EV market landscape is confusing at best, especially as new developments emerge that create a void in how best to integrate EV technologies into existing parking services,” said APSG Managing Partner, Ryan Robinson. “APSG’s comprehensive data sources and understanding of the parking industry assesses real needs and provides a leading-edge solution through SemaConnect’s technologies.”
With elegantly designed charging stations, a robust and open network platform, and an unparalleled charging experience, SemaConnect manages all aspects of EV amenities from quick installation and easy maintenance to parking payment solutions, education services, marketing opportunities, and ongoing support and feature enhancement.
“APSG is an industry expert in parking, transportation, mobility, and green technology and understands the challenges facing public services,” continued Sargent. “As demand continues to grow, SemaConnect and APSG provide a seamless EV charging solution that helps bridge the gap between emerging technologies and the communities they serve.”
