Our brain is a tool with incredibly cool features. After gaining a critical mass of knowledge, it is able to subtly reconfigure, reprogram itself, while comprehending the process of rethinking. A multi-level system in a multi-level system, but there is one peculiarity. The focus of attention — is a crucial thing in the perception of events, of the world.

The brain is not able to process in detail the entire amount of information that falls on us and is forced to choose what is important and what can be ignored. Our internal attitudes define the filter of our perception of…


Pre New Year’s Focus

I will be ahead of everyone by a couple of days, so as not to get into a flurry of posts on New Year’s Eve. They say that life is determined by events, not years. This year I managed to live to the fullest.

- Enjoyed the view from the rooftop of the tallest building in Frankfurt am Main.

- Ate a rucola soup at 2500 meters with panoramic views in Austria in Lienz and then went down the powder on a snowboard.

- Ran along a deserted beach in Netherlands — between lockdowns.

- Conquered…


Wednesday. Two years have passed in a new country.

I remember how I came to Germany with a startup without knowledge of German. The startup didn’t take off — I was left completely without money.

I remember how I went through three-hour interviews, not understanding 50–60% of what was said. I remember how I signed the contract on the last day of my stay in the country. I remember traveling on the last train to the Bergisch — Gladbach foreigners Authority for a visa extension.

Without old habits, familiar faces, familiar things, without understanding what is happening.

In two years, my life has changed dramatically, I raised another world in my head. So now there is almost an entire constellation :)

What dramatically and fundamental changes have happened to you in the last two years?


Availability and comfort play an important role in charging of electric vehicles. If the driver has to walk more than 1 km to charging station, most likely he is not very happy about it.

Argument 1: Average range per day

According to the research made by insurance company HUK-Coburg, nearly half of the cars doesn’t travel more than 250 km in one day. During research which lasted for 8 months, HUK-Coburg studied 25 million trips on the total distance of 6800 circumnavigations.

Today, most of the electric car models already can go beyond 250 km without the need in recharging their battery.

According to the estimations…


This article covers the core features of the products we build.

Disclaimer: the following products are a work in progress.

1. Management System

The TAU Management System is a single application for control and monitoring of charging stations. It allows owners of charging stations to get income by providing public access to charging stations.

There are multiple ways to use the Management System and the owners of the charging stations are free to customize their (charging) locations as they want. In order to understand the system better — let’s have a look at some of the core features.

Charging station management and monitoring

There is a remote control…


A typical road to the closest charging station for majority of people in 2019 (figurative).

Underdeveloped infrastructure is a real hurdle for the development of e-mobility.

The Problem

Nowadays the required ratio between low power AC charging stations and e-cars is 1.1 in most regions of the world. This number is confirmed in the North region (IEA, 2018) and in the US (NREL, 2017).


Hello. Let’s get acquainted. My name is Aleksandr Palchikov. I’m physics-engineer from Russia.

My team and I are building an infrastructure, where every regular citizen can set up a charging station in his household or parking lot and get profit from providing public access to it.

The idea

The project idea was born in Norway in 2017 during my masters degree. That was the first time when I told about this idea to my group mate — Damir. At that moment I didn’t know that I’ll start implementing it.

The idea kept following me and I could not escape it even in…
