Envision Group launches green charging robot “Mochi”, the world’s first mass-produced charging robot 100% powered by green electricity
Charging stations are currently limited for EV drivers in part because pre-installed charging points are often occupied by other users in public spaces. Mochi can be deployed in many locations and will automatically find and charge EVs, which saves time and hassle for the drivers. As more EVs hit the road, Mochi will provide a flexible solution to help meet this increasing demand for charging stations.
Mochi operates on Envision Group’s EnOSTM intelligent operating system, which connects and manages over 200GW of renewable energy assets globally. The system provides Mochi with 100% access to green electricity, allowing EVs, charged by Mochi, to offer passengers a truly green ride.
Mochi is compatible with most mainstream EVs on the market. Powered by Envision’s AESC vehicle-security-level batteries, Mochi has a capacity of 70 kWh and a 42 kW power output. Mochi can charge an EV in just 2 hours for a cruising range up to 600km.
Mochi is designed by IDEO, a global innovative design company, and GFG, a top automotive design company from Italy. Mochi is compact, flexible, and equipped with precise location-sensing technology, allowing it to travel with centimeter-level navigation accuracy. When encountering obstacles, Mochi can stop safely within 0.1 second from its full speed of 1m/s, which guarantees safety.
Subscribing the service through a Mochi App, EV drivers can leave their cars and count on Mochi to charge the EVs automatically. After receiving instruction, Mochi will set up a smart charging plan, locate the EV, and start charging independently. During charging, Envision’s EnOSTM system will conduct real-time monitoring on the EV battery, along with a comprehensive health examination to ensure its safety.
Envision, as a leading technology group deeply engaged in the renewable energy industry, is empowering its clients and business partners to achieve the low-carbon transition by continuous efforts on renewable energy software and hardware technological innovation. Envision Group is also strategically working with APX and I-REC, two of the world’s top green power certificate agencies, to make 100% green travel possible.
Zhang Lei, CEO of Envision Group says that “Mochi is an intelligent charging assistant for electric cars and will be a partner for everyone in the net-zero future”. He adds that “the smart device is also a link that brings green power to people’s day-to-day lives and allows everyone to embrace a net-zero life in advance.”
Mochi is scheduled to start operation in Shanghai this summer.

Taseko Announces 2020 Sustainability Performance
VANCOUVER, BC, April 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Taseko Mines Limited (TSX: TKO) (NYSE MKT: TGB) (LSE: TKO) (“Taseko” or the “Company”) has published its annual Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) Report, titled ‘Sustainability: Our Low Carbon Future’ (the “Report”), highlighting Taseko’s sustainability performance for 2020.
Stuart McDonald, Taseko’s President, commented, “2020 was a difficult year in many respects, with lower copper prices earlier in the year and a world-wide health pandemic at the forefront; but people, communities, and companies rallied together and adapted. During this challenging year, we continued to keep our employees safe and working, while also meeting our commitments to the environment and communities. I want to specifically acknowledge the work of our employees whose dedication and commitment to success resulted in an environmental reclamation award, Indigenous partnerships and exceptional health and safety performance.”
“Our Gibraltar Mine helped sustain economic strength in local communities, and we also worked to advance other projects, including our Florence Copper Project which will have one of the smallest environmental footprints, and lowest carbon intensity, of any copper mine in the world. It is an opportunity for copper production with minimal environmental impacts, including: water consumption that is fourteen times lower, carbon emissions six times lower and energy consumption three times lower than a conventional mining operation.
In this year’s ESG report, Taseko has reported Scope 1 and 21 greenhouse gas emissions for the Gibraltar Mine which show that the mine ranks in the first quartile of all copper mines globally. When commercial operations at Florence Copper commence, the Company’s combined GHG emissions intensity will drop even lower, to an estimated 1.53 tonnes of CO2e per tonne of copper equivalent, based on an independent analysis by Skarn Associates.”
Taseko Mines’ 2020 sustainability highlights includes:
- Rigorous health and safety protocols enabled operations to continue at the Gibraltar Mine in Williams Lake BC and at Florence Copper in Arizona during the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Recognition from the British Columbia Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation with the Jake McDonald Award for outstanding work in mine reclamation and Indigenous collaboration.
- Outstanding safety performance at Gibraltar Mine with zero loss time incidents, zero days lost, zero loss time severity, and zero loss time frequency.
- Continued commitment to a diverse workforce that reflects the communities in which we operate. In 2020 28% of the new hires at Taseko are female and 15%2 are Indigenous people.
- A priority on securing local goods and services with C$116 million and US$2.5 million being distributed to local suppliers from Gibraltar and Florence Copper, respectively; C$72 million and US$2.1 million was distributed in wages to local employees from Gibraltar and Florence Copper, respectively.
- Low Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emission of 1.66 tonnes of CO2e per tonnes of copper produced equivalent and 0.09 tonnes of CO2e per tonnes of copper equivalent produced, respectively.
- Continued discussions with our Indigenous neighbours, that included a Framework Agreement with a local Indigenous Nation to begin discussions on the Yellowhead Project, as well as an extension to the standstill agreement with Tŝilhqot’in Nation as both parties seek a long-term solution to the conflict regarding Taseko’s proposed gold-copper mine currently known as New Prosperity.
1 Scope 1 emissions are direct greenhouse (GHG) emissions that occur from sources that are controlled or owned by an organization, such as diesel used in vehicles. Scope 2 emissions are indirect GHG emissions associated with the purchase of electricity, heat, or cooling.
