There is a surprising and innovative business opportunity for an energetic and visionary new team in the UK to take an idea developed by an energetic and visionary Portuguese businessman in Lisbon. He has worked out how to charge electric vehicles using solar power, and created a perfectly circular business model around this simple breakthrough. His name is Carlos Jesus.
Carlos provides his customers with the cars, on lease, the charge points, on lease, and the solar power, which he sells. In other words, he offers his customers a turn-key service introducing them to electric vehicles. The cars in questions can be as simple (Nissan Leaf) or as ambitious (Tesla saloon) as you like, or ? more to the point ? as your wallet allows.
Carlos also supplies the solar panels and the charging system, which is where the innovation really lies. Few people are able to do this commercially ? yet. But it will be possible to use his expertise if the right people can be found to set up a joint venture. This is not just an opportunity for the UK. It will spread across Europe in the coming years. It is already the centrepiece of an EU project application, which, if successful, will kick start the concept across the whole of North West Europe.
So step forward and make yourself known now, if you want to be introduced to this exciting new opportunity.
