In pursuit of its dream to meet the “Smart City” standards outlined in a 2016 local ordinance, the city government of Isabela collaborated with various stakeholders to launch the first electric-powered vehicle charging station in the Cagayan Valley region, along with several E-trike prototypes.
The prototype for the Rapid Electric Vehicle Charging- Charging in Minutes (CharM) was developed by the UP EEEI and supported by DOST-PCIEERD.

Leo Allen Tayo (firstname.lastname@example.org), CharM Technical Project Leader. For interested partners, you may also visit the DOST PCIEERD site for more project details.
