Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: EV Charger Networking Companies

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 20 EV Charger Networking Companies

Driven by government and corporate interests to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the EV market is poised to grow significantly as internal combustion engines (ICEs) are phased out. To support the growing fleet of EVs, significant investments in charging infrastructure are needed. Guidehouse Insights expects more than 185 million EVs will be in use with nearly 170 million charge points deployed by 2030. Many of these charge points are anticipated to require networking platforms that can streamline various aspects of charge point management such as broadcasting charge point availability to EV drivers, managing access and transactions, controlling energy costs, and sourcing renewable electricity.

As the broader EV ecosystem and technologies evolve and mature, new opportunities are emerging for EV drivers, site hosts, fleets, and grid operators, raising the stakes for platform providers. Innovations in charging communications are streamlining how EV drivers access public charge points, automaker adoption of bidirectional charging systems is opening markets for revenue generating vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services, and integrated energy storage in charging equipment and at charging sites presents new energy management demands. To stay competitive in this market, networking platform providers need to stay ahead of these trends.

This Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard report examines the strategy and execution of 20 leading providers of EV charge point networking companies. These suppliers are rated on 8 criteria: Go-to-Market Strategy, Partners, Product Strategy, Geographic Reach, Sales, Product Portfolio, Staying Power, and Innovation. Using Guidehouse Insights’ 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 EV charge point networking market.
