EVBox and ChargePoint customers will be able to access charge points across Europe and North America
EVBox and ChargePoint, two of the world’s leading providers of electric vehicle charging, have announced a landmark roaming partnership that enables EV drivers to roam between charging networks, making EV charging more accessible than ever.
The roaming partnership will enable drivers on the EVBox and ChargePoint networks to seamlessly access public charging spots while travelling throughout Europe and North America. The agreement eliminates the need to register for multiple accounts and ensures that drivers don’t incur additional fees when roaming.
This partnership represents the first-ever global agreement to enable roaming between EV charging networks and reinforces the companies’ shared commitment to provide an open network that is accessible for all. Together, the companies provide EV drivers from around the world with access to tens of thousands of charging spots distributed across both continents.
This news comes on the heels of the Global Climate Action Summit, where both companies made substantial commitments to the growth of their networks over the next seven years.
By 2025, EVBox and ChargePoint collectively pledge to expand their global networks to 3.5 million charging points to accelerate the mass adoption of eMobility and substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions around the world. This agreement marks another milestone in EVBox and ChargePoint’s shared goal to enable the transition to a zero-emission world that is efficient and sustainable.
CEO EVBox Kristof Vereenooghe said: “Millions of EVs will become available globally, and with that comes the need for a global charging infrastructure. For the transition to eMobility to work, a network built upon open standards is an absolute must – therefore we are happy to announce this historic agreement with ChargePoint to that aim.
“Our global roaming agreement is the biggest to date and will make driving and charging EVs easier and more convenient globally. I strongly hope other eMobility providers and operators will also be inspired to form similar partnerships and agreements. A few weeks ago, I attended the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, where we were all reminded of the importance of working together in the fight against climate change. This roaming agreement is another important step in bringing us closer to reaching that ambitious goal.”
