OUR HISTORY

2013

The mission to provide electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging solutions to the Philippine market started in 2013, through a DOST-funded project called Rapid Electric Vehicle Charging - Charging in Minutes (CharM).

The initial R&D of CharM was hosted by the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute of UP Diliman.

Rapid Electric Vehicle Charging - Charging in Minutes (CharM) won the Most Outstanding R&D Award in 2015 by DOST PCIEERD in the Energy, Utilities and Systems category.

The first commercial EV charging station in the country was established in Cauayan City, Isabela to service local E-Trikes. This is part of the City Government’s vision for a “Smarter and More Progressive City”.

2019

CHRG EV Technologies Inc. started its commercial operations as a spin-off company from the University of the Philippines. 

 

The establishment of CHRG INC is also jumpstarted by the FASTRAC program of DOST-PCIEERD.

CHRG's efforts to provide EV fast-charging solutions continued through multiple deployments all over Luzon.

 

The company, in cooperation with the E-Mobility Group, also extended their support to help the fight against Covid-19 through relief operations, PPE fabrication, and special transport services.
