Did you get the chance to go to the 29th World Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition (EVS29) taking place in Montreal last week?
ChargeHub was right in the center of it with a booth that got some high profile visitors and a conference presentation that received a lot of praises.
Here are some ChargeHub EVS29 highlights:

Public Charging User Experience: Are you doing it right?
Simon Ouellette, co-founder and CEO of ChargeHub, presented an analysis of the actual public charging user experience in North America. The presentation was targeted at any stakeholder in public charging infrastructure. Simon presented alongside Jamie Dunckley from EPRI, Patrick Jochem from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Daniel Boston from Ford Motor Company in session 5F titled “Understanding EV Consumers: Plugging In”.
With ChargeHub’s extensive database of user comments at charging stations throughout North America, we were able to pinpoint the 5 key elements that impact user public charging user experience the most.
- On-site Personnel
- Signage / Accessibility
This session was one of the most attended session at EVS29. The room was packed and the delegates show a lot of interest with many questions on the topic of user behavior for the presenters.
Government representatives see how ChargeHub can help them meet their EV & GHG objectives
ChargeHub had the chance to meet David Heurtel, Quebec’s Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight against Climate Change, and to talk EV infrastructure with him. Minister Heurtel promptly downloaded ChargeHub on his phone and had some good words for the work ChargeHub is doing to help grow a strong EV ecosystem by bridging the gap between the charging infrastructure and EV drivers (current and future).
When Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport in the Government of Canada, stopped by the ChargeHub booth, he immediately saw the immense value ChargeHub brings to EV drivers. Immediately his first question was: show me how I can plan an EV trip from Montreal to New York. Olivier Proulx, co-founder & CTO, was happy to do so on the spot for Minister Garneau.
Glen Murray, Minister of the Environment & Climate Change in the province of Ontario, stopped by our booth and had a lot of questions about ChargeHub’s services. Minister Murray was particularly interested in the interactive tools ChargeHub has developed to provide support to dealerships to increase engagements and increase EV sales. The tool also caught the attention of Mark Nantais from the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturer Association and David Adams from Global Automakers of Canada.
Brian Kent (aka Mr. EV)
Brian Kent, who holds the world record of the longest continuous EV roadtrip, spent the 4 days at EVS29 sharing his road trip experience with everyone. He even received a large ovation by all delegates in attendance during ChargeHub’s presentation about user experience at public charging stations.
For his Negative Carbon Road Trip project, Brian Kent teamed up with ChargeHub and used the ChargeHub app as his go-to charging locator. With the ChargeHub app he could easily find all the charging stations in the U.S. and Canada and get the turn-by-turn directions to his next charging point.
