“Seeing beyond the curve” is the goal of most entrepreneurs, to be always ahead is what moves us in search of an adequate solution to the users’ “pains”, to have a better, sustainable and economic life. The process of electrification in Brazil is going slowly, our country is still engaged in the electrification of its fleet, but gradually the presence is increasing. Brazil, which is the country of the most varied types of fuels, is gasoline, ethanol, diesel and gas, with several prices, has a constant concern related to the emission of pollutants, following in the process focused on the consumption economy. The automakers have already begun to realize this opportunity, now what is lacking are better conditions and benefits for the consumer to acquire, after all the measures of Route 2030 will not be enough.
Brazil is the country of creativity to solve problems related to consumption and increase of fuel values. It has many aspects such as: adapted gas car fever, the new era of the adapted “electric” fusca, that is, when the industry takes time to take action, the solution ends up being in the consumer’s own hand. This is a clear indication that the behavioral research on the purchase of electric cars in Brazil and in the world is not wrong, we want to have another option to keep our car economically, along with the concern related to sustainability, with the issue less polluting gas.
To develop OHM is to get ahead of what is to come, a market that already gives clear indications that it will grow exponentially, like what is already happening outside Brazil. When that happens we will be prepared with the best charging solutions for electric cars. In the next pages you can understand the great opportunity that will be the process of electrification of mobility in Brazil, aligned with digital services and sales solutions. In this way, OHM will collaborate with these consumers and customers in the process of electrification of their urban mobility.
Global Electric Mobility Cars
The global market for electric vehicle charging infrastructure is expected to reach $45.59 billion by 2025, according to a new report from Grand View Research, Inc.
Governments around the world are committed to encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles, this was no different in Brazil with the approval of Route 2030, even if it still suffers from the market for directly competing fuels, such as gasoline, ethanol, diesel and gas, companies that have large investment in structure in the country, a market led by Ipiranga, Raizen and BR (ANP, 2018).
Brazilian Market Electric Cars
In the research developed by IPSOS called The Future of Mobility Electrification, it brought a very common behavior among the potential consumers who will use the electric car, but that today use car combustion.
Most people surveyed, have a clear perception of high fuel prices, aligned with concern about the emission of pollutants, are two aspects that are even more evident in countries like China and Brazil, one of the crucial behaviors to sustain a business connected to the category of electric charging station in Brazil.

Value Preposition Ohm Electric Mobility
Ohm is a transformative and innovative service platform that aims to improve the experience of electric car users, with the process of charging and managing the power of your car, whether at home or abroad. We identified a business opportunity where today in Brazil and Latin America, it is very difficult to have and maintain an electric car, mainly for the structure of loading the cars in public or commercial roads, this fact second research of Ipsos, brings the greatest insecurity for purchase of an electric car, it is in this “pain” that we will act.
Ohm’s revenue and monetization model will be focused on two operations, the user will be willing to pay for the service and convenience of charging electric cars, in which the charge will be made directly to the user for the consumption of each minute of the electric energy through of the equipment, per-minute value will be 0.24 cents, for an average consumption of 40 minutes at 80% battery. All payment transactions will be made by the application through the application’s internal payment gateway. The price of the service and loading was defined with the price parameter of our main competitor, EDP do Brasil. In addition to the sales of the chargers by e-commerce, value of chargers for R$ 3,775.00.
How it Works
Our recharging services work separately or together – and fit all business models. Through continuous R&D, we can already use EVs as equilibrium elements in the energy system.

We will begin the MVP by separating in crucial stages for the development of the OHM product and service. Taking into account that the main objective is the delivery of value to the user who seeks comfort and agility, who want to find and hire the service of charging for their electric car or buy their own charger, we will develop the application with the main functionalities that meet these needs objectively with quality.
With the prioritizations we will really validate if the problem exists, what the user behavior, especially if they would pay for the charging service, or if they would buy an OHM brand charger. See the priority map developed to identify the stages of application development in Figure 17 – OHM Priority Matrix.
Business Plan P&L
We know that in the first year our goal will be to sell five chargers through our e-commerce, plus the ten chargers to provide service by the application. The two models of service proposal, bring great differentials with what is already available in the Brazilian market, in which it will be the first e-commerce focused on the sale of charging stations, with the best product on the market in terms of technology and design, in addition to price 65% below the main competitor that is Schneider, with sales value of $3,775 each shipper.
The loading station business will be the second to be launched in the Brazilian market, competing with the Portuguese company EDP. Contused, it will be the only one in the market with application that collaborates with the good experience and convenience of the user who wants to load his car. One of the strategies for launching this service will be the trial (Trial), where the user will have the benefit of testing the charging service for a month at no cost, after that test can still contract the service with lower market loading price, arriving to be 15% below the price of EDP, based on the values pointed out by Bracier on EDP’s business in Brazil.
