Volatus Infrastructure & Energy Solutions (VI&E Solutions) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with PowerUp America, a Tennessee-based sustainable transportation solutions company.
Together, VI&E Solutions and PowerUp America will collaborate to electrify the infrastructure at airports, vertiports and other relevant electric mobility locations within the United States to create a sustainable, accessible regional transportation ecosystem.
“The US electric grid is over 100 years old; we must remember it was not built for efficiency. We look forward to working hand-in-hand with PowerUp America to complement strategies for a new standard for eVTOL charging in advanced air mobility. Our partnership will be where the future lands today,” said Bob Johnson, Chief Commercial Officer, VI&E Solutions.
Josh Turner, CEO of PowerUp America, added; “Our partnership with VI&E Solutions is a groundbreaking initiative to develop an airport charging network throughout the region. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our mission to revolutionize the transportation landscape by integrating sustainable energy solutions with our nation’s aviation infrastructure. Together we are committed to creating a robust network for freight and passenger transport, setting a new standard for airport connectivity. Our joint effort signifies more than just the expansion of charging infrastructure; it represents a shared vision for a greener, more connected future. We look forward to the innovation and opportunities this partnership will bring to our communities and the positive impact it will have on our environment.”
