Flash Wins California Energy Commission $5.8M Grant for EV Charger ‘Innovation Lab’ in Oakland

Flash Parking

The California Energy Commission (CEC) and Flash, a pioneer in parking + charging solutions, today announced Flash secured a $5.8 million grant from CEC for a large-scale electric vehicle (EV) charger demonstration project in Oakland, California. The first-of-its-kind project will deploy at least 446 low-cost Level 2 EV chargers over a two-year period in convenient, high-density, high-visibility installations in a 1.5-mile area around downtown Oakland. With $24 million in funding from California’s Clean Transportation Program, the CEC grant to Flash and other awardees aims to demonstrate replicable and scalable business and technology models to deploy Level 2 charging infrastructure and improve public awareness of and confidence in Level 2 charging access. The project will also include installation of two Battery Energy Storage Systems that will help safeguard EV charger affordability during periods of peak energy demand. “Bay Area residents’ early commitment to the EV transition uniquely positions this community to serve as an ‘Innovation Lab’ for electrification projects in California and nationwide,” said Matt McCaffree, Vice President of Utility Market Development for Flash. “This collaboration with CEC will not only show what’s possible in high-density smart cities like Oakland but also keep the charging gap for early adopters from becoming a confidence gap for the next wave.” Bay Area EV adoption continues to outpace the national average by a factor of three. By installing reliable, affordable, and convenient public chargers, Flash and the CEC aim to close the charging gap and encourage further EV adoption—particularly among downtown residents, for whom dependable public charging is a prerequisite for ownership in lieu of at-home chargers. The success of the project would establish quality public charging as a standard among the practical, convenient, and environmentally-friendly “smart cities” of the future. “For residents living in downtown areas where at-home charging isn't an option, reliable and convenient public charging is key for continued EV adoption,” said CEC’s Lead Commissioner for Transportation Patty Monahan. “The CEC is looking forward to Flash's deployment of hundreds of Level 2 chargers throughout downtown Oakland to be a model of successful public charging.” The project will also generate invaluable data regarding battery capacities, operating costs, replicable price points, and emergency procedures, as well as insights toward stimulating demand and increasing return on investment. This information can then be used to expand and improve upon the Oakland deployment and inform electrification efforts throughout California and beyond. About Flash Flash is a pioneering technology company bringing seamless parking and EV charging experiences to drivers through a first-of-its-kind digital ecosystem. Flash’s platform connects reservable parking and charging in the apps drivers use every day with garage, surface lot, event, and valet parking locations — connected and controlled via a cloud-based operating system with unrivaled intelligence.

QuantaSing (NASDAQ: QSG) Sets Its Sights On Global Expansion, Leverages Kelly’s Education Buy To Build Awareness In Hong Kong, U.S. And Beyond


By Meg Flippin, Benzinga QuantaSing Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: QSG), one of the largest providers of online education for adults in China focusing on both the learning and personal interest markets, is in growth mode, gearing up to expand internationally and into new markets. The company has a strong reputation in China thanks to its use of upcoming and cutting-edge technology, including livestreaming and artificial intelligence, to provide seniors with easy-to-understand, affordable and accessible online courses. It’s capitalizing on the aging population in China, which is growing at such rates the World Bank designated it a “ super-aged society. ” Revenue and subscribers for the company were up double-digits in the most recent quarter, and QuantaSing wants to replicate that success in the U.S. It's a big market to go after – as of 2022, there were 58 million Americans aged 65 and older. By 2050, that’s projected to grow to 82 million, a 47% increase. Expanding Its Global Footprint Into New Markets To that end, QuantaSing has been busy in the States, spending two weeks traversing the country from New York to San Diego, meeting with investors and key stakeholders to tell its story, plot its expansion and set the groundwork to forge new partnerships. The meetings have proven fruitful with QuantaSing reporting it will announce further developments in the coming weeks and months. As part of its vision for the future, QuantaSing is not just targeting seniors with its global expansion plans. It’s also banking on Kelly’s Education ’s success. QuantaSing bought the Hong Kong-based online language education platform last fall, giving it a presence in the global online education market and the language learning sector. Kelly’s Education targets kids ages 3 to 15, a new demographic for QuantaSing. As part of the deal, QuantaSing launched Hong Kong Online Education (HKOE), which offers high-quality online English education for children with a sharp focus on delivering value. HKOE adheres firmly to the belief that top-tier education should be within reach for a broader audience of children, not just a privileged few. By implementing a reasonable pricing strategy, the company says it can reach a wider age group, broaden its course offerings and diversify its revenue. “We are excited to integrate Kelly’s Education and the new brand HKOE into our ecosystem. Their strong business model and seasoned team lays a solid foundation for our global market entry,” Peng Li, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of QuantaSing, said at the time. “We plan to broaden our course offerings, including Chinese language learning, and diversify our revenue streams by appealing to a wider age group.” Networking And Building Relationships Stateside To build awareness in the U.S., Kelly’s Education CEO Ken Chau joined QuantaSing at the ASU + GSV Summit in San Diego, an annual conference bringing together the great minds from the pre-K to the gray education market and also contributing to the conversation around online learning, adult education and AI. Chau was part of a panel discussion, sharing his thoughts and insights on creating “Responsible AI for Kids.” Kelly’s Education uses AI to break down barriers, reduce stigma, develop confidence and enable children and young adults to live richer, more meaningful lives. The conference provided another opportunity for QuantaSing and Kelly’s Education executives to make contacts with industry players and investors. The company had a lot to share with the panel attendees. For starters Kelly’s Education recently inked two collaboration deals with Disney World of English and National Geographic Learning, aiming to provide children with a higher quality teaching environment and learning materials, further enhancing their learning outcomes and striving to build Kelly’s Education as the No.1 children’s English learning platform in Hong Kong. What’s more, the unit is gearing up to announce its first physical school in May. The school will combine online and traditional learning methods, serving as an interactive, innovative learning center offering various educational resources and high-quality teaching services, QuantaSing reports. The idea is to give students a more in-depth and engaging way to learn via interactive courses and guidance from teachers. Coinciding with the launch of the school is QuantaSing’s move to open its first office in Hong Kong in early-summer. It marks the company’s first presence outside of Mainland China and commences the company’s new chapter of growing internationally. From buying Kelly’s Education to networking in the U.S., QuantaSing is getting serious about expanding its business beyond China’s borders. Its soon-to-be-opened office in Hong Kong is expected to be a springboard for more to come. With the world getting older and students craving a new way of learning, QuantaSing is positioning itself to capitalize on that growth in its home country and beyond. Featured photo by Arthur Lambillotte on Unsplash. QuantaSing is a leading online service provider in China dedicated to improving people’s quality of life and well-being by providing lifelong personal learning and development opportunities. The Company is the largest service provider in China’s online adult learning market and China’s adult personal interest learning market in terms of revenue, according to a report by Frost & Sullivan based on data from 2022. By leveraging its proprietary tools and technology, QuantaSing offers easy-to-understand, affordable, and accessible online courses to adult learners, empowering users to pursue personal development. Leveraging its extensive experience in individual online learning services and its robust technology infrastructure, the Company has expanded its services to corporate clients, and diversified its operations into its e-commerce business and its AI and technology business.
