"Empowering Installers to Integrate Solar and EV Charging: A Path Towards Cost-Effective E-Mobility Solutions in Germany"

The speaker emphasizes the crucial role of installers in Germany, noting their significant contribution to building nearly 4 million photovoltaic (PV) systems and 120,000 public EV charging stations. He proposes leveraging this expertise to further transform e-mobility by combining solar energy with electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. Highlighting his background in solar installation, he points out that solar energy is considerably cheaper than traditional electricity costs for charging EVs. By integrating these sectors—solar power and e-mobility—users could potentially achieve very low or even zero-cost driving. However, a challenge exists: many installers lack the necessary skills to manage both hardware and software integrations required for efficient operation of EV chargers. The solution proposed involves training installers through comprehensive support programs that automate processes using specialized software dashboards for remote management. This not only streamlines operations but also simplifies market entry despite its complexities. The program also addresses regulatory compliance and subsidies while emphasizing flexibility through a hardware-agnostic platform adaptable to various projects without locking into specific solutions. Ultimately, the goal is continuous innovation in mobility by enabling local experts with centralized support from consulting services spanning multiple industries. Installers are invited to join an Installer Partner Program which offers additional revenue streams and brand presence growth within the burgeoning e-mobility sector—a call-to-action supported by references like Douglas Adams' desire for "stuff that works" underscoring simplicity amidst technological advances.
