In 2017, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the NYCx Climate Action Challenge, which seeks new technologies that will foster the goal to replace gas-powered vehicles with electric ones in the City of New York. Chinatown Bureau partnered with Innogy Consulting to create a network that connects electric car drivers not only to the charging stations they seek, but to participating businesses in the community.
Chinatown Bureau hired me to help design the app, which allows users to connect to charging hubs through their mobile device. App users would be able to navigate to their nearest charging station, receive information and discounts for nearby amenities while their vehicle charges, and schedule a future charge.
