It is also developing a 120kW supercharger, with the potential to give an electric vehicle a 480-mile range in just one hour.
Spitzer hopes this will help revolutionize the convenience of electric vehicles, speeding up the charging process, increasing the driving range and reducing the reliance on costly charging infrastructure.
He says when combined with more powerful car batteries, the technology makes it possible to take long road trips with greater convenience and confidence.
FreeWire’s mobile energy technology has many applications, including in areas such as entertainment, construction and disaster relief, Spitzer says.
Technologies such as FreeWire’s could have a broader impact on energy consumption, says Greg Callman, Senior Managing Director and Global Head of Energy Technology, Macquarie Capital.
“When you combine advances in charging, battery storage and clean energy, such as wind and solar power, you can reduce dependence on fossil fuels and create a quieter, more efficient world with close to zero emissions," he says.
“It won't happen everywhere at once, but if you employ the technology where it makes sense, there comes a tipping point where electricity becomes the natural choice for transportation, simply because it is the most economic or convenient."
