ChargePoint announced the availability of a complete suite of charging solutions to help drivers in Europe charge at home, work, around town and on long trips.
With residential solutions for multi-family and single-family homes as well as public and commercial solutions for many types of businesses including, fleets, public charging sites and rapid charging hubs along major roadways, ChargePoint is the only company to deliver a comprehensive suite of charging solutions for every scenario, accelerating the expansion of e-mobility in one of the fastest growing EV markets on the planet, which continues to see double-digit growth in plug-in vehicle sales.
Global sales of EVs and plug-in hybrids are expected to increase 433% by 2021 while battery electric vehicle market penetration is expected to grow to 40 percent in Europe by 2030. In anticipation of this growth, ChargePoint is building on its leadership position in North America and bringing new solutions to the world’s second-largest EV market. ChargePoint has already delivered a comprehensive portfolio of EV charging solutions in North America, with innovations designed for unique charging needs including single-family homes, apartments, street-side charging, fleets, workplaces and other scenarios. The company has capitalized on its experience and charging expertise to develop new solutions that meet the unique needs of the European market.
To develop the charging solutions that the market needed, ChargePoint drew on years of experience serving EV drivers and station owners, as well as market research from across multiple countries in Europe. By supporting single-phase and three-phase power, cable attached and cable managed stations as well as socketed stations for Type 1 and Type 2 vehicles, ChargePoint’s complete suite of solutions enables a superior charging experience for EV drivers and simplifies charging management for station owners.
ChargePoint Home meets the charging needs of EV drivers who live in single-family homes or have their own garage or dedicated parking space. ChargePoint Home makes it easy for drivers to manage charging in the ChargePoint mobile app, which can monitor energy usage as well as schedule, start or stop charging sessions.
The CP4100 Type 2 socketed AC charging station and CP4300 Type 2 cable attached AC station offer charging for businesses, multi-family residences and fleets. The CP4500 socketed AC charging stations are equipped with local grid connections to allow for direct connection to the grid for public charging hubs. For EV drivers on long trips or in need of quick chargers, the ChargePoint Express 250 and Express Plus DC ultra-fast charging stations support CHAdeMO, CCS2, CCS1 and GB/T connectors. With a comprehensive online dashboard and the ChargePoint network, station owners can get reports on charging station use, energy costs and environmental savings.
ChargePoint commercial products are available for order now and will begin shipping later this year. Businesses can contact ChargePoint for more information about EV charging solutions best suited to their unique charging requirements.
Earlier this year, ChargePoint raised a $125 million Series G round led by Daimler with participation from Siemens to bring EV charging to Europe. The company will continue to enhance EV charging solutions for all stakeholders with the aim to accelerate the shift to electric mobility.[source: ChargePoint]
