Navigant Research Leaderboard ranks the strategy and execution of 15 leading providers of public charging networks and EV charging services operating in North America and Europe.
Amsterdam, December 11th, 2018 – Today, EVBox, one of the leading global manufacturers of electric vehicle charging stations and charging software, proudly announced that it has been awarded the #1 position in the Navigant Research Leaderboard: EV Charging Network Companies report. Based on 12 different criteria surrounding strategy and execution, EVBox received the highest scores.
EVBox scored 78.0 on the Leaderboard, claiming a spot in the ‘Leaders’ category (required min. 75.0 score) together with only ChargePoint. Navigant highlighted several reasons why EVBox achieved the top position:
- Early adoption of the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP), e.g. partnering with providers such as EV Connect, ChargePoint, NewMotion and many others.
- Strategic partnerships with PV (photo voltaic) companies including IBC Solar, preparing for integrating charging equipment with solar technology.
- Parent company ENGIE being active in home-energy, mobility, and smart cities services, providing great potential for EVBox’s continued growth.
Of course, we are very proud of our top position on Navigant’s Leaderboard. Navigant describes the ‘Leaders’ as companies that are clearly differentiated from competition with exceptional charging solutions, strong partnerships, and a sustainable business model. Every day, our entire EVBox team is working hard to give our customers the best possible charging experience, so it’s great to also see this recognized by an independent resource such as Navigant!Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox
