ChargePoint and EVBox to install 3.5 million EV charge points by 2025

ChargePoint

ChargePoint and EVBox have committed to installing 3.35 million new electric charge points in North America and Europe by 2025.

At the Global Climate Action Summit, ChargePoint, which has more than 50,000 charge points globally, committed to having 2.5 million units, while EVBox said it will have 1m new chargers by that time.

Taken together, and with three other energy company announcements, these amount to more than 3.5m additional charging points by 2025.

Currently there are around 500,000 public chargers in the US, Europe and China.

Pasquale Romano, CEO of ChargePoint, said: “Our commitment to deploy 2.5m charging spots by 2025 comes as the company embarks on the most significant period of growth in our history and in the midst of a revolution in transportation.

“The time for transformative change is now.

“One hundred percent of what we do is focused on developing technology that enables cleaner transportation, and ChargePoint is proud to play a critical role in facilitating the transition to electric mobility, and supporting the Summit’s mission to reduce greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.”

In addition, the Hydrogen Council committed to ensuring that 100% of hydrogen fuel used in transportation is decarbonised by 2030.

This global CEO coalition brings together more than 50 leaders from the energy, transport and industrial sectors.

The Hydrogen Council is also calling on governments to build a global alliance that will create the necessary regulatory frameworks to help make this commitment a reality.
