Kalibrate is to be the world leading platform provider for macro and micro level location insights for vehicle convenience. We have a wealth of experience and expertise in developing our decision suite for combustible fuel and convenience retail, both for pricing and planning. With the emergence of alternative fuels and commitments by governments globally to ban the sale of combustible engines, we recognize the need for this platform to be extended beyond traditional fuel retailing and into alternative fuels. This aligns with the stated needs of our clients and prospects from other verticals who have been requesting tools and analysis around location selection for EV chargers. Kalibrate’s expertise in modelling, consultancy and software deployment has resulted in engagements outside of our core vertical. This includes a project with National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. NREL contacted Kalibrate and asked for our help to determine the best locations to introduce hydrogen fueling stations throughout the state of California that would ensure retailer success and give consumers the confidence to purchase hydrogen vehicles. Kalibrate’s expertise in the modelling of alternative fuels locations has been recognized by the award of a KTP grant - to research and determine the most appropriate methodologies for profitable location of electric vehicle recharging facilities. Throughout the partnership Kalibrate will engage with a variety of experts across the alternative energy industry including retailers, car manufacturers and EV charger manufacturers. Preliminary engagements have begun with a major fuel retailer and a EVC supplier to provide assistance with EV charging location decisions.
