Solving EV Charger Infrastructure Downtime. Supporting a Seamless Transition into an Electrified Future

Our Purpose

SkillFusion is improving the EV owner experience by ensuring high levels of charger reliability and uptime by better enabling the deployment of certified labor that is scalable across the nationwide charger network.

By fusing specialized skills with endless opportunity, our platform is increasing availability of certified electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) workers, ensuring service providers have seamless access to the right-trained service technician for every job, every single time.

From upskilling to dispatch enablement, SkillFusion’s industry-first approach provides EVSE operations and maintenance (O&M) service providers with access to a nation-wide credentialed talent pool for all service obligations. Through our cross-sector training and certification platform, SkillFusion is developing the most comprehensive talent pipeline of certified electrician and non-electrician workers available today.

The Genesis

As the electric vehicle market continues to grow, the industry is grappling with the unreliability of charger availability due to excessive downtime for maintenance. An issue that is becoming increasingly more important as the federal government. instills a mandated 97% uptime requirement for the equipment. This downtime is caused by the lack of skilled technicians and electricians trained and available to work on this new technology.

Background

SkillFusion’s groundbreaking approach provides charger-agnostic skill enhancement and certification, creating a proprietary database of certified workers available to service the country’s growing EV charger network. The program developed by SkillFusion covers the full spectrum of skills needed to support charger operations, including licensed electricians and technicians specializing in technical support, networking and communications, cybersecurity, and more.

SkillFusion was founded under a collective commitment to advancing electrification and an unbridled passion for creating lasting impact. Co-founders Rue Phillips and Elaina Farnsworth connected in 2021 as both worked with the Make Hope Happen Foundation, Uplift San Bernardino, and eventually Green Paradigm to inspire students to explore career opportunities in electrification, charger installations, and beyond. Beyond the acquisition of technical skills, the collective mission is to nurture confidence and effective communication—truly empowering students to navigate their futures with purpose and resilience.
