ChargePoint and NATSO in 2020 announced a landmark partnership to create a National Highway Charging Collaborative to extend electric vehicle charging to every corner of the nation. The Collaborative aims to deploy charging at more than 4,000 travel plazas and fuel stops that serve highway travelers and rural communities. In its first year, the public-private Collaborative successfully funded more than 150 DC fast charging spots with additional access to more than 1,500 publicly available DC fast charging spots for consumers on ChargePoint’s existing network.
The two organizations agreed that the National Highway Charging Collaborative will, by 2030:
Deploy charging infrastructure at 4,000 travel centers and fuel stops, leveraging $1 billion in capital.
Provide charging infrastructure at fueling locations across the United States with a focus on connecting rural communities.
Expand availability of charging infrastructure and connect existing Federal Highway Administration-designated FAST Act corridors.
Work together to achieve policy outcomes to support each of these objectives.
The organizations identify public and private funding sources that may be available to support the expansion of EV charging at strategically determined locations, including Volkswagen Settlement Appendix D Funds and other dedicated resources available to NATSO members.
