A fast-growing clean tech company

Technology to make electric vehicles a grid resource will rely on both scale and sophistication. In the words of Greentech Media, "EV-Box has been working on the scale side of the equation, with more than 48,000 of its smart EV charging stations deployed in 27 countries and 980 cities to date. In the U.S. market, EV-Box is starting to deploy its solutions in California, and recently secured a 300-station pilot with EVConnect and the New York Power Authority. And its recent purchase by Engie, gives it opportunity for far more scale in the years ahead."

EV-Box's use of the OpenADR protocol to support next-generation grid integration, allowing owners of charging stations to participate in demand response and other grid services, was a key criteria to attribute the award to the company.
