Navigant Research Leaderboard Report: EV Charging Network Companies

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 12 Companies Offering Public Charging Networks and EV Charging Services

Governments, utilities, and automakers are increasingly supporting commercial charging infrastructure deployments. While most vehicle charging today occurs at a driver’s personal home charger, many stakeholders looking to spur demand for plug-in EVs (PEVs) believe that widespread, convenient charging accessibility is critical to attaining this goal. Stakeholders have thus supported the rollout of public charging sites and installations at office buildings, parking garages, and other locations where the charging site owner is seeing demand from the growing number of PEV drivers.

The commercial charging market has attracted a wide variety of vendors offering a range of solutions. Five years ago, there was a glut of players targeting this market. The landscape has since changed, with some large companies dropping out and smaller ones closing their doors or merging. At the same time, the commercial charging market itself is evolving. In some markets, governments and utilities are shifting focus from public charging to multi-unit dwelling and workplace charging access. The introduction of long-range battery EVs (BEVs) is prompting interest in fast chargers, with automakers committing to major investments. Charging companies will need to be able to take advantage of these trends. They also need to prepare for a time when the market must be self-sustaining, with a clear business model to support commercial charging services.

This Navigant Research Leaderboard Report examines the strategy and execution of 12 leading providers of public charging networks and EV charging services in major PEV markets. These suppliers are rated on 10 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; product strategy; geographic strategy; market presence; marketing and distribution; product performance and reliability; product and service capabilities; 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.
