About ChargePoint

Recognized as the worldwide leader in electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, ChargePoint is the largest online network of independently-owned EV charging stations in the world – operating in more than a dozen countries with more than 12,000 charging locations. Every 15 seconds someone connects their vehicle to a ChargePoint station.

ChargePoint’s best-in-class hardware – as well as hardware from other manufacturers – is connected to ChargePoint's cloud–based software. This innovative platform provides charging station owners with the control and data they need and want to optimize their charging operations, including billing, access control, and remote driver support. Station owners can monitor and track charging station usage and costs, create pricing structures for charging services, and reward driver loyalty.

ChargePoint provides a free mobile application with real-time data that allows drivers to locate and navigate to unoccupied charging stations. Drivers can also track their charging status and usage, as well as their greenhouse gas and fuel savings. Over 60 percent of all publicly-accessible networked EV charging stations are ChargePoint stations or run on the ChargePoint network, and nearly 40 percent of all EV drivers are ChargePoint members. By initiating 2.5 million charging sessions, ChargePoint consumers have saved three million gallons of gasoline and avoided 46 million pounds of CO2 emissions.
