DOE: four networks maintain >60% of 22,343 Level 2 and DC fast charging stations in US

There are 19,975 level 2 charging stations and 2,368 DC fast charging stations to serve electric vehicles in the US. More than 60% of those charging stations are maintained by four networks: ChargePoint, Tesla, Blink, and SemaCharge, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE).

Level 2 charging stations can be used residentially or commercially to provide electricity faster than a standard 120-volt outlet. ChargePoint has the largest number of non-residential level 2 charging stations, followed by Tesla.

DC fast charging stations allow for long distance travel of EVs by providing quick recharge rates along highways and well-traveled corridors between metropolitan areas. The eVgo Network has the largest number of DC fast charging stations, followed by Tesla with its SuperCharger network.

The pie charts below show Level 2 EVSE Station totaling 19,575 on 14 August 14, 2018 and DC Fast Charger EVSE Stations totaling 2,368 on 14 August 2018.

A station is a non-residential address where Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) are located, including both public and private stations. There may be several charging outlets at each station.
