Navigant Research Leaderboard: EV Charging Network Companies

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 15 Companies Offering Public Charging Networks and EV Charging Services

Utilities, energy companies, and automakers have begun to play more significant roles in supporting charging infrastructure deployments. These entities, along with governments, will be the major funders of plug-in EV (PEV) charging services. During the last 2 years, energy companies have been investing in charging technology companies and charge point operators in order to expand operations into new geographies. These alliances will create new opportunities to diversify revenue streams by integrating EV charging stations into grid operations. 

While there are many market participants with several years’ experience in technology development and operating charging stations, the business case remains challenging in several areas. The vendor landscape remains largely fragmented, with many companies overlapping territories while striving to become the leading operator in a region. The increasing range of battery EVs is prompting the need for charging operators to provide faster charging, such as the ultra-fast charging corridors spreading across North America and Europe. Charging companies are also partnering with utilities to explore the nascent market for using charging equipment in grid services, an application that will grow in importance during the next decade.

This Navigant Research Leaderboard examines the strategy and execution of 15 leading providers of public charging networks and EV charging services that operate in the major PEV markets of North America and Europe. These suppliers are rated on 12 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; product strategy; technology; geographic strategy; sales, marketing, and distribution; product performance; product portfolio; grid integration; customer solutions; and staying power. Using Navigant Research’s proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing industry participants with an objective assessment of these companies’ relative strengths and weaknesses in the current commercial charging services market.
