About ChargePoint

ChargePoint brings electric vehicle (EV) charging to more people and places than ever before.

ChargePoint operates the world’s largest and most open EV charging network. We also design, build, and support the technology that powers it. As our network grows, it makes driving an EV accessible to more and more people. Our mission is to get everyone behind the wheel of an EV and provide a place for them to charge wherever they go.

How are we making it happen? First, we’re transforming the transportation industry by providing the charging stations, mobile app, and the network that allow people to charge their cars everywhere they go. Second, we’re transforming the energy industry by developing intelligent energy management solutions to help people and businesses shift away from fossil fuels. And, finally, we’re making it easier for drivers to adopt EVs by connecting them to automakers, businesses, and each other, as well as educating the driving public.

Every day we add more drivers and businesses to our network, and driving an EV makes even more sense. And that’s what ChargePoint is all about: driving a better way.
