Halifax, Nova Scotia — David Giles, co-founder of All EV Canada and longtime EV educator, has formed a new business venture: PoweredEV Training and Consulting.
“We are a global consulting company with over 20 years of experience in strategic planning and course development for electric vehicles,” Giles wrote on LinkedIn. “We work in the world of electric and hydrogen transportation to build a sustainable future.”
Giles has more than 30 years of experience in collision repair, is Red Seal AST certified and has worked on hybrid/electric vehicles for more than 15 years. He will serve as president of PoweredEV Training and Consulting.
Giles told Canadian Auto Recyclers that Powered EV Consulting will consult the industry on “anything to do with EVs.”
“We’re working with global automakers, companies from around the world, colleges and universities, technician training and certification groups–there’s been a lot of interest.
“It’s been almost overwhelming, honestly, just this past week! But it’s great and I’m excited to see where things take us.”
Steve Fletcher, managing director of the Automotive Recyclers of Canada, said, “Auto recyclers everywhere look forward to working with David to safety and profitably process EVs to recover their parts and materials as part of the circular economy.”
