FSG Smart Buildings has partnered with electric vehicle (EV) charging firm ChargePoint to provide turn-key EV charging solutions to different sectors of the commercial market.

The partnership aims to provide design, installation, commissioning and project management services from a single-source provider.

Established in 2007, ChargePoint aims to simplify the process of switching to electricity for businesses and drivers.

ChargePoint has one of the largest EV charging networks and offers a complete set of charging solutions, the company claimed.

ChargePoint is creating a new fuelling network to transport people and goods using electricity for different sectors such as residential and retail.

ChargePoint channel sales vice-president Adam Cook said: “ChargePoint’s collaboration with FSG Smart Buildings enables more commercial businesses, residences and fleets to offer an EV charging service that tracks energy consumption, sets charging prices and more.

“Electric mobility is quickly becoming a fixture in the world of smart buildings as adoption of electric mobility accelerates. Partnerships like this help businesses seamlessly implement EV charging solutions and empower more commercial businesses with the tools they need to join the charge.”

In 2018, ChargePoint raised $240m in a Series H funding round. The funds were used to speed up the installation of charging stations to support the mass adoption of electric mobility for drivers and businesses.

Last month, Charge expanded its footprint in the US and Europe with the installation of charging stations for electric scooters and other micromobility vehicles across 6,000 locations.

Volkswagen and the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) also signed an agreement to introduce self-driving electric shuttles in Doha, Qatar.
