Re-using conventional vehicles, giving them a second life as electric to provide unique sustainable transport alternatives, tailored to your individual needs.

The Idea

 

Issue


Conventional methods of transport contribute large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions into our atmosphere which negatively affect our plant, resulting in global warming and adverse weather.

 

Opportunity


An opportunity exists in the sustainable transport sector. Currently the electric vehicles available on the market are expensive and limited by function and style.

 

Our Solution


We provide unique zero emission electric vehicles to suit individual customer needs by re-using conventional vehicles and converting them into electric. This conversion process prevents any emissions from the scrapping process by giving the retired vehicle a second life. This also enables us to provide a larger range of sustainable transport alternatives than currently available on the market. It also provides us with enough flexibility to cater for our individual customer’s functional, financial, style and performance requirements.

The Competition

 

Current State


Our identified customer segments are currently using conventional vehicles, public transport, bicycles or walking to fulfil their ‘jobs’. A small percentage utilise sustainable transport.

Conventional Vehicles – fast, convenient, can be cheap, high running & maintenance costs, high emissions, private, versatile.

Public Transport – very slow, requires effort, cheap, reduced emissions per person.

Bicycles & walking – slow, requires effort, zero emissions.

 

Our Solution


Our solution provides flexible, unique, zero emissions transport alternatives to suit individual customer needs. Enabling reduced ongoing costs and providing increased functionality in the transport sector.

~No sacrifice for sustainable transport~

The Vision

 

Our Vision


We are aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by providing more flexible and affordable sustainable transport alternatives to better meet the needs of the market.

 

Our solution will likely reach at least 50% of the transport community, including individual commuters and company bodies.

 

Initially we are targeting the local ACT market and would branch interstate as the next phase. The solution we are offering is globally applicable, but it demands an in depth resource requirement evaluation before global viability could be justified. We definitely see a market for our solution in developing countries which have set a national greenhouse gas emission reduction target.

 

We see a market for our solution in the individual transport sectors well as the company fleet market, and the vehicle hiring market. We are also evaluating potential value added services such as electric vehicle maintenance & servicing, specialty consulting services, residential integration of electric vehicle for smart energy management, specialised component distribution and component technical support.

Mentor Pitch

Conventional methods of transport contribute large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions into our atmosphere which negatively affect our planet, resulting in global warming and adverse weather.

We have identified an opportunity in the sustainable transport sector. Currently the electric vehicles available on the market are expensive and limited by function and style.

We aim to provide unique zero emission electric vehicles to suit individual customer needs by re-using conventional vehicles and converting them into electric. This conversion process prevents any emissions from the scrapping process by giving the retired vehicle a second life. This also enables us to provide a larger range of sustainable transport alternatives than currently available on the market. It also provides us with enough flexibility to cater for our individual customer’s functional, financial, style and performance requirements.

We are both electrical engineers, with automotive experience and are passionate in the renewable energy and sustainability sectors. We are confident in the delivery of our solution, and its practicality in the market.

We are looking for a mentor with an interest and belief in our vision, with experience in a relevant field who can assist in the development of our solution.

The Customer Experience

Customers will be able to interact with our venture by visiting our shop-front style workshop, where they can experience our completed products and learn more about our services. Our online presence will provide a channel for potential customers to contact us via social media and our website.

 

We will utilise social media and to create awareness of our products and services and direct customers to our website where they can learn more about our venture. A launch event will be held to mark the opening of our shop-front style workshop, and as a way to increase our customer reach and brand awareness.

 

The shop-front style workshop provides a customer-friendly atmosphere and doubles as a workshop, providing an insight into the services we provide and the products we develop.

 

By maintaining constant communication throughout the design and development process we aim to keep our customers informed and make them feel like an integral part of the process.

 

Upon the provision of our service to customers we aim to maintain our relationship post transaction by providing various feedback channels on our social media platforms and website, and by offering various after care services for their product. By maintaining good communication and fostering good relationships with our customers we hope to increase our brand awareness and develop our public image.

The Team

We are Tom Creek and Dan Clements. We are electrical engineers with experience in emerging technology in both a technical and project management capacity. We share a passion for the environment and a focus on sustainable living. We have in-depth knowledge of electrical systems, automotive applications and business acumen, positioning us perfectly to develop this sustainable transport solution.

We have developed valuable industry and supplier contacts providing us with reliable materials and facilitating our venture’s services and product development.

We have developed detailed designs, models, and costings for a range of services and products. We are in the initial stages of our venture and are working to develop a functioning prototype to demonstrate our capability and vision.

Our Partners

We have access to a broad range of skills both within and external to the team which will help create our success, but in order to further develop and enhance our venture we would love to collaborate with other like-minded groups and individuals.

Some areas we have highlighted which need further development include our approach to marketing and social media management.

It would also be beneficial to collaborate with new entrants in the electric motor drive and battery technology manufacture markets.

If this sounds like you or you know someone who may be interested, please get in touch.

 

Cheers,

Tom & Dan
