Hermann Hauser, engineer, computer and venture capital entrepreneur, has played a centrale role in the founding phase of several companies within the British Silicon Valley (Silicon Fen) close to Cambridge. Driven by innovative trendsetting ideas he now became one of the important facilitators of Easelink in setting a standard for automated conductive charging with his investment in the company.

Hermann Hauser and Hermann Stockinger, founder and managing director of Easelink, share the same vision: shaping a sustainable future. Therefore, Hermann Hauser joined Easelink as an investor to contribute to make the ground-breaking technology Matrix Charging® a standard for automated conductive charging in e-mobility.

Both entrepreneurs see three major trends changing mobility: the electrification of the vehicle powertrain, mobility as a service and autonomous driving. This forces OEMs to adapt their powertrain configurations and as well as setup changes of the charging infrastructure by charge point operators. The more autonomous electric vehicles get, the more important automated charging systems become. Easelink is about to close this missing link by developing an automated charging solution “Matrix Charging®” for electric vehicles. This automated charging system proves its potential with a high performance, efficiency and user comfort. Any parking time can be converted into charging time.

Currently, several prototypes of Matrix Charging® are tested in urban city pilot projects which showcase the potential of the technology usability. A high scalability rate of Matrix Charging® can be achieved by licensing models within the automotive and infrastructure industry. Hermann Hauser shares his extensive know-how and expertise of licensing models with Easelink having built up one of the most successful licensing models with

Easelink is a high-tech company headquartered in Graz, Austria, and dedicated to development of the automated conductive charging solution “Matrix Charging®” for electric vehicles. The innovative character of Easelink can be seen in its many patents and trademarks. Easelink, with sites in Austria and China, currently has 45 employees and actively contributes to various standardization bodies for charging technology, such as the relevant working groups of the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIn), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Within the framework of cooperative projects, a number of leading automotive manufacturers and suppliers, infrastructure providers and vehicle fleet operators are already making use already of the innovative Matrix Charging® technology.
