Tell the community who you are and what is your project about:
Solum PV is a Start-up company whose core business is the design and procurement of clean energy solutions for smart-cities. We provide customer-tailored product from different markets: Urban Mobility, Logistics, Construction and Urban Infrastructures.
What differential value do you contribute to the sector that doesn’t do your competitors?
Solum PV core value lies in its in-house developed technology. The Solar Pavement SSZ. The SSZ is a 100% walkable pavement that can be installed at any free space of the city, and provides clean energy with an efficiency similar to a Photovoltaic Module. This technology allows us to power any electronic solution placed in the streets, squares and other free spaces of the city. One of our first product is a charging station for electric vehicles with no need of gridconnection works, without disturbing the citizens transit or the city’s aesthetics.
Who is your product or service aimed to?
Our product is aimed to any company that use an electric fleet, for whatever reason (shared mobility, logistics…etc.) for who having charging stations in the heart of the city can provide value for their current services and clients.
Tell us about your team, what motivates you and how is your journey so far:
We want Solum PV to be a reference in the Smart-City sector. We want to contribute to enhance our local industrial sector, creating job opportunities for the whole social spectrum.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
We will be the number one National company for clean energy urban solution, having at least 5 different products in the market and with the strength to land in the international market.
How do you see the mobility sector (in the specific sub-vertical in which you work) in Europe?
There are still lot of uncertainties concerning the model or models that will prevail in Europe. We think that the final model would be a mix of mobility solutions, tailored for the citizens needs in each situation. But we are sure of one thing: it will be electric mobility solutions, and Solum will try to feed those solutions with clean, smart, urban-adapted energy.
How do you think your project can contribute to changing the way we move or interact with mobility?
We will help mobility companies to transit towards electric mobility. We will assure that their fleet are always charged, secure and well allocate for the citizens.
Name 1 or 2 startups or corporates who inspire you and why:
Tesla, for tacking the lead of the transition towards electric mobility at any cost, and Apple, for being able to take the product design beyond the expected.
Why did you decide to join the Connected Mobility HUB?
We wanted to interact with the local mobility network, looking for opportunities of collaboration and discussing about the future of urban mobility and smart-cities. We are sure that we will profit from the different visions that the network can offer.
