A New York startup, Gravity, aims to revolutionize urban EV charging with its high-powered "trees" that can recharge cars in just five minutes. These sleek, curbside DEAP Trees (Distributed Energy Access Points) are designed to tackle the significant challenge of EV charging in cities, offering a faster, more efficient alternative to traditional chargers. Partnering with Rangr Studio, Gravity's innovative design eliminates messy cables and adapts to any EV. These chargers promise to boost EV adoption in urban areas by providing rapid charging, thereby increasing turnover at charging spots. With plans to make these chargers bidirectional for future energy-sharing capabilities, Gravity is positioning itself as a key player in New York's ambitious carbon neutrality goals. The city aims to support 1.6 million EVs by 2050, requiring substantial charging infrastructure. Gravity's cutting-edge solution could play a pivotal role in achieving this vision.
