Greenlots and ChargePoint partner to increase access to EV charging throughout North America with peer-to-peer roaming agreement

Greenlots and ChargePoint announced a roaming partnership that will enable charging between networks, opening access to thousands of additional charging locations throughout North America at no additional cost.

Beginning in mid-2019, drivers will be able to charge on either ChargePoint or Greenlots networks without the need to create separate accounts or pay additional fees, enabling a more seamless experience.

This agreement benefits drivers and businesses by increasing access to essential charging solutions and creating a better experience for EV drivers. The more charging solutions to which drivers have access, the easier it is to drive electric—which helps encourage more drivers to choose EVs.

Industry collaboration is a key ingredient in ushering in the next generation of mobility, supporting EV drivers and paving the way for the electrification of transportation. Soon, drivers will be able to use the Greenlots or ChargePoint mobile applications to locate charging stations, activate a charging session, and pay for charging, a familiar experience for users of either network.

As an added benefit, property owners who manage or install charging stations may see an increase in station utilization, opportunities to create new pricing plans and other new options for growing their businesses.

This roaming agreement is based on the Open Charge Point Interface (OCPI) protocol. OCPI is an independent, open protocol that enables network operators to exchange key information needed to provide roaming services, which gives EV drivers a number of benefits.
