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.
