eSpotlight: AMPLY Power

Welcome to this week’s edition of eSpotlight, where we give our Partners, Members, Clients, and Preferred Service Providers a chance to tell their story about their work with the California Mobility Center (CMC) and what they bring to the future mobility table. Being featured this week is AMPLY Power, one of our first commercial clients which we announced in late 2020. We hope you enjoy this guest post by Vic Shao, Founder & CEO of AMPLY Power!

AMPLY deploys and operates EV charging infrastructure the way data centers operate server blades – lots of them at a time, with high efficiency, low cost, and 99.99% uptime. AMPLY serves public sector and commercial businesses that own and operate fleets of vehicles – electric buses, trucks, and passenger fleets. The company uniquely takes on all components of zero-emissions charging through its scalable Charging-as-a-Service approach.

AMPLY has worked with several transit authorities, such as the Anaheim Transportation Network, Solano County Transit Authority, and Tri Delta Transit. Additionally, AMPLY has partnered with AECOM, a Fortune 500 company dedicated to sustainable infrastructure development, to further the company’s goal of decarbonizing the transportation sector. Last Spring, AMPLY secured $13.2 million in Series A funding from Soros Fund Management and Siemens to allow the company to further scale their Charging-as-a-Service offering for commercial fleets. Additionally, AMPLY previously received seed funding from Congruent Ventures, PeopleFund, and Obvious Ventures.

How the California Mobility Center is Filling the Connector Gap in the Mobility Sector

By Vic Shao, Founder and CEO of AMPLY Power

Urban planning departments across America are struggling to find solutions for the imminent electrification of their fleets. Unreliable and incompatible charging hardware and software platforms, under-built power infrastructure, and fragmented fleet management software represent the principal barriers to further electric vehicle (EV) adoption. The Biden administration has pledged to install 500,000 new public charging outlets in the U.S. by the end of 2030, and this means that there is no time to waste: cities must be ready to cross into the new era of cleantech.
