ChargePoint Holdings, Inc., a leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network, has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022, ranking third among companies in North America.
Fast Company recognizes ChargePoint for its leadership in enabling global electrification, from passenger vehicles to fleets, with a network of more than 174,000 active charging ports, bringing charging to more people and places than ever before. This is ChargePoint’s second time receiving recognition from Fast Company, having previously been ranked fifth among transportation companies.
“We are honored to be recognized alongside so many companies pushing the limits on innovation,” said Pasquale Romano, CEO, and President of ChargePoint. “ChargePoint helped create the EV charging industry 15 years ago and remains committed to enabling businesses and drivers to go electric through an industry-leading portfolio of charging solutions. Our inclusion in Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies list is a testament to our team’s continued commitment to innovation, our strong growth in all key market segments across North America and Europe, and further demonstrates our market leadership.”
In the last year, ChargePoint further expanded its comprehensive portfolio of hardware, software, and services for commercial, fleet, and residential customers. Businesses, fleets, and drivers continued to turn to ChargePoint for EV charging education, resources, and technology as they look to participate in the new fueling network.
ChargePoint forged new partnerships with major automakers like Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Polestar, and Mazda, aimed at simplifying the driver experience with seamless integration between the charging platform and the manufacturers’ infotainment systems. The company streamlined the software experience by integrating the ChargePoint app into both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, connecting charging data directly to the vehicle’s infotainment system. The enhanced connection between app and vehicle represents the next step in how drivers and passengers are fueling mobility and how ChargePoint is delivering technology solutions to fit the needs of EV drivers now and in the future. Additionally, ChargePoint introduced the industry’s most comprehensive global electric fleet charging portfolio combining world-class software-defined hardware with services and support features to satisfy the operational needs of all types of fleets.
ChargePoint also has state-of-the-art research and development facilities in North America and Europe for testing and evaluation of ChargePoint’s EV charging products. ChargePoint continues to make investments in R&D covering all categories of charging from home and multifamily to workplace, parking, hospitality, retail, and transport fleets of all types.
To date, three billion electric miles have been driven on the ChargePoint network and drivers have avoided more than 145 million gallons of gas, preventing over 608,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. From concept to scale, ChargePoint’s solution portfolio includes everything needed to electrify and optimize fueling, regardless of the size, use, or type of vehicle. ChargePoint’s significant software capabilities and range of AC and DC fast charging solutions balance charging costs with operational readiness, making ChargePoint a key partner in the efficient and rapid electrification of transportation.
“The world’s most innovative companies play an essential role in addressing the most pressing issues facing society, whether they’re fighting climate change by spurring decarbonization efforts, ameliorating the strain on supply chains, or helping us reconnect with one another over shared passions,” said Fast Company Deputy Editor David Lidsky.
