icles get plugged in to an EV charging station
or wall outlet to charge. The category electric vehicle technologies on Energy Partner Network can be related to vehicle manufacturers, battery technology, EV software,
EV charging stations and more.
Fleet management software, fractional EV leasing and other new car “ownership” and use models are emerging to accelerate EV adoption — these innovations will make electric vehicle technology easily accessible to more drivers.
Level 1 chargers are residential units, Level 2 are used primarily in commercial applications where users can charge overnight and Level 3 are fast chargers requiring 2-3 hours to charge up to 80% of the battery.
