Climate change is one of the most pressing problems of our time. Greenhouse gas emissions from our cars are a big contributor—nearly 20% of CO2 emissions in the U.S. come from cars.1 That’s where electric vehicles (EVs) and ChargePoint’s network of charging stations come in.
The number of EVs on the road is expected to increase 14X over the next 10 years2
2015: 1 Million
metric tons of CO2 emissions avoided by U.S. EVs3
2025: 20 Million
metric tons of CO2 emissions avoided by U.S. EVs4
Over the next 10 years, if all cars in the U.S. were EVs charging on electricity from renewable sources we would avoid 12 billion metric tons of CO2—like taking the U.S. off fossil fuels for 2.5 years7,8
ChargePoint drivers have already driven enough electric miles to circle the earth 10,000 times and avoid over 37,000 metric tons of CO2.5 This is just a small fraction of the electric driving and emissions saving ChargePoint has enabled.
Our 25,000 charging spots give people the confidence that they can drive on electric and charge up when and where they need to.
The U.S. Department of Energy has found that someone with charging at work is 20 times more likely to switch to a plug-in car.6
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change honored ChargePoint with a Momentum for Change award at the annual Conference of Parties (COP21) in Paris, France this past December.
ChargePoint was one of 16 Lighthouse Activities selected for its innovative and scalable approach to tackling climate change.
ChargePoint received this award for its partnership program with BMW and Volkswagen to create Express Charging Corridors along both coasts of the United States.
