Envision Solar International, Inc., announced Sept. 15 it is changing its name to Beam Global. The new name, along with new branding and visual identity, reflect the Company’s continued commitment to lead the cleantech industry as the developer of products, solutions, and business models that accelerate the global transition to a clean transportation sector.
The rebranding comes as the company continues to meet the growing demand from governments and companies seeking to ensure their EV charging capabilities are scalable, robust, and cost effective, as well as easy to use and install. The release of a new version of Beam Global’s flagship product, the EV ARC 2020 (Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Charger) — which generates and supplies electricity to EV chargers without the need for construction, electrical work, or a grid connection — exemplifies the company’s contribution to the rapid scaling of EV charging infrastructure. The company is also preparing to launch new products tailored for the medium and heavy-duty vehicle and UAV markets. As Beam Global, the company is establishing its position as a pioneer in enabling the rapid scaling of clean transportation infrastructure beyond its signature transportable, renewably-energized charging units.
Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley says, “Governments and enterprises are eager to provide charging infrastructure that is scalable, reliable, and cost effective while avoiding hurdles like lengthy construction and electrical projects that are typical of grid-connected charging units. Beam continues to meet these needs — while securing our energy supply and supporting global climate commitments."
