Sharging

The goal for this research project is to investigate the interest and challenges in offering electricity to owners of electric vehicles through a shared platform as a business. The word Sharging is a combination of "share" and "charge". 

Sharging is an innovation project with the goal to develop a service that facilitates households to offer charging to electric car drivers through a digital platform. Today, there is a challenge with the transition from diesel and gasoline to electricity as a fuel, especially outside of larger cities, since the charging infrastructure has not yet been sufficiently expanded. By building a service on an existing infrastructure, and thus making it available, the transition can be facilitated. The challenge identified is to build the service with a sustainable business model. The project will also explore methods in business design to better understand and validate hypotheses in what makes a service successful or not.
