Energy Cafes

My story starts back in 2012, where I was a Computer Science nerd at the University of Montana. This was the year the Tesla model S was introduced. As I watched the announcement I thought this seems too good to be true. As the car came to market and I started looking into Tesla and the Electric car market I found one major issue right off the bat, charging. The cars took a long time to charge. Then with Tesla rolling out the supercharger network in 2013 this started to fix a lot of the charging issues people were facing. Fast forward to today 2020 and we are seeing the Electric car market growing. By the year 2030 we will likely see the electric car market over take the Gasoline car market. This makes me ask the Question once again, "What about Charging"? 

I personally feel this is the best time to go back to first principles and look at what needs to be done when it comes to changing the future of charing in the United States. 

I have put together a plan to rethink every aspect of the Gas Station / Convenient Store. This plan is to move this essential industry into the electric powered future. The key points of this plan is as follows:

- Green Energy: This is a key point of the future of energy production, each one of our Energy cafes will be 100% self powered. We will achieve this by using the newest Battery and Solar technology. Each Cafe will have the ability to generate and store its own power. This is a key aspect of moving to a sustainable future. This does two things for the industry, it makes sure that we are protecting the environment for years to come. It also keeps cost down for the consumer, by cutting out the oil and gas industries. This will mean no more guessing if the price of fuel is going to go up.

- Healthy Options: like many people who travel today know, it is very hard to find anything healthy at a convenient store. This is another key area we are looking to change. Our Energy Cafes will offer a wide range of items, from Starbucks coffee to responsibly sourced snacks and meals. We want Energy Cafes to be a place to relax, meet new people, catch up on current events and enjoy great food. 

- Technology and Convenience: As of now convenience stores are places where people stop because they have to, not because they want to. We have asked "why is that" for years and the truth is that convenience stores really aren't that convenient. We plan on bringing a new way of ordering, purchasing and charging to our Energy Cafes. We are looking at first principles of all of these areas. We think by making a more open layout and using smartphones we can change the paradigm of how stores in the future will work. As we have seen before with the Amazon Go Stores, the technology is here. Like most industries, the retailers are content on the old business models. We think this is something that needs to change. The way we look at this is, the only people that benefit from these business models is the business it's self. The consumer is the one that suffers, from waiting inline to paying higher prices. We think the consumers interest should always be put first. 

This is our plan for the future of Energy, convenient stores and the electric car industry. Together we can make the future brighter for everyone. Please donate if you have the means, Thank you so much for the support.51636168_1601673933740976_r.jpeg
