Fastned Charging Day is coming up this week. It is primarily focused on investors. To reach as large a public as possible, the format of an online show was chosen. The complete business of fast charging theoretically can be explained in this three-hour presentation.

Charging as a business is a new phenomenon. Last year, there were four IPOs of charging companies on Wall Street. They were hailed as the new Tesla or at least a new Exxon. Clearly, investors had no idea what they were doing. The stocks were volatile.

Now, Fastned, one of the oldest and most experienced charging companies, is going to explain it all. How to build a network. How to make it profitable. That the business grows with the number of fully electric cars on the road. I have been following Fastned for years, and I will be watching on Tuesday, perhaps even asking questions.

The program is promising:

You can register on this page. Don’t expect a dancing robot showing its preferable way to get charged, though. Fastned is not that kind of company.

Grumpy old man. The best thing I did with my life was raising two kids. Only finished primary education, but when you don’t go to school, you have lots of time to read. I switched from accounting to software development and ended my career as system integrator and architect. My 2007 boss got two electric Lotus Elise cars to show policymakers the future direction of energy and transportation. And I have been looking to replace my diesel cars with electric vehicles ever since. At the end of 2019 I succeeded, I replaced my Twingo diesel for a Zoe fully electric.
