Spacer Takes on America's $96 Billion Parking Crisis

Spacer can significantly enhance parking capacities, in some instances by doubling it through its technology.

Spacer Technologies, the owner of America's leading parking marketplaces Spacer and Where I Park, announces today its expansion by working with businesses to offer a cutting-edge parking management system that helps lower emissions and decarbonize transport in the community.  

Designed for workplaces, public organizations, universities, commercial properties, and those working toward President Biden’s whole-of-government goal of cutting carbon pollution in half by 2030*, the advanced technology will enable companies to significantly enhance their parking capacity, in some instances by doubling it, without the need for additional physical space.

Since launching into North America in 2018, Spacer Technologies has been focused on peer-to-peer shared parking for consumers. The company has now launched its corporate arm through Spacer and Where I Park by securing partnerships with numerous businesses and industries, which is predicted to grow the business by 50% in revenue in 2024.   

This includes hotel chains, real estate, construction firms, and hospitals along with two of the world's top 10 technology companies, spanning across cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, to name a few. 

The new parking management system will simplify the process for people to find a guaranteed parking spot, reducing fuel consumption. Employees working different shifts or hours can share the same parking spot, while spaces reserved for visitors and contractors can be used when not needed. For corporate premises with neighboring businesses or residential areas, unused spaces can be leased out during off-peak periods, creating an additional revenue stream and optimizing space usage. 

On average, Americans spend 17 hours annually searching for parking, which costs each driver $345 in wasted money. The combined issues of searching for parking, fines, and parking overpayments have escalated into a $96 billion problem in the U.S. In metropolitan areas with over a million residents, 22% of city center land is dedicated exclusively to parking, which often stores empty vehicles. Spacer’s mission is to utilize spare parking spaces more efficiently without the need to build new (or bigger) parking lots.

Mike Rosenbaum, the Founder and CEO of Spacer Technologies, comments, “Our mission is to reduce America’s parking problem and promote sustainable transportation practices through our marketplaces. The new parking management system will bring us closer to this goal by helping American businesses monetize space and minimize waste more effectively.”

SEAM Group Selected as EPC Contractor for Nuvve’s Groundbreaking Fresno Electrification Project

SEAM Group announces its role as a key partner in Nuvve Holding Corp.'s (Nasdaq: NVVE) groundbreaking fleet electrification project for the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC).

SEAM Group, a global leader in energized asset performance, is proud to announce its role as a key partner in Nuvve Holding Corp.'s (Nasdaq: NVVE) groundbreaking fleet electrification project for the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC).

In alignment with Fresno EOC's commitment to sustainable transportation solutions, the organization is taking a significant step to reduce Fresno's carbon footprint by transitioning its fleet to electric vehicles. This initiative will see Fresno EOC replace its fleet with 50 electric Class-A shuttles over five years. A 2.5-megawatt on-site solar generation and battery energy storage system will be installed to support the electric shuttles. SEAM Group, recognized for its proven platform that combines strategic advisory, custom training solutions, field inspection, and maintenance, will provide comprehensive engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the project and will celebrate its groundbreaking on June 20, 2024.

SEAM Group engineers and renewable energy specialists are poised to play a critical role in the project's success. "We will leverage our expertise across the entire project lifecycle, providing comprehensive services that include strategic advisory support, design, engineering, and procurement of the electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and solar battery storage systems, thorough site assessment and planning, and construction management," said Colin Duncan, SEAM Group CEO. "This comprehensive approach ensures a smooth transition for the Fresno EOC, addressing all aspects from strategic planning to the physical construction of the project."

A unique aspect of this project involves minimizing reliance on the grid during peak demand hours. SEAM Group's expertise will ensure seamless solar battery storage system integration, allowing the electric fleet to operate independently during these times.

"I applaud the Fresno EOC team for their vision of implementing on-site generation, battery storage, interconnection to the grid, and EV charging on a single site. It is encouraging to see lessons learned from years of design and installation applied to develop a first-class location," remarked Scott Moretz, SEAM Group COO.

"We are honored to serve as the EPC contractor for this significant project, partnering with Nuvve and Imperial Electric Services. Our combined expertise ensures a safe and efficient transition to an electrified fleet, empowering Fresno EOC to embrace renewable energy and reduce operational costs," said Simon Boyce, SEAM Group CRO.
