The EV charging station market is just forming, but there are already clear leaders. To benefit EV drivers, however, those companies could team up to provide more access to charging stations. And they have.
“Via a new partnership to expand networked EV charging stations in North America, DBT USA’s new North American portfolio of Level II EV charging stations now have the option to connect to ChargePoint, the world’s largest global EV charging network. In a recent study by Pike Research, ChargePoint and DBT are rated as the number one and two EV charging station equipment manufacturers, respectively, in the world,” Green Car Congress writes.
“Through ChargePoint, DBT USA can now provide station owners and EV drivers features including the ability to help with trip planning, manage the cost of charging, and find and operate public stations.”
Good news. More and better charging stations, combined with significant price drops for EVs, should get this EV revolution rolling!
