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:
- Extending technology expertise in building scalable charging solutions from 3kW to 350kW (AC and DC), and driving innovative projects (e.g. wireless charging, e.g. the Dutch Living Lab project, and a wireless charging pilot in Rotterdam)
- 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
EVBox CEO Kristof Vereenooghe said: “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!”
