ChargePoint and LG Electronics (LG) have formed a strategic partnership for future innovations in EV charging. The first output of this relationship will be commercial charging solutions that encompass ChargePoint’s charger management software and LG’s EV charging hardware, with deliveries expected to begin later this summer.

Future areas of collaboration may include combining ChargePoint EV charging solutions with LG energy storage systems, integration of the LG ThinQ smart home platform with ChargePoint’s award-winning Home Flex residential charger, and chargers that leverage LG’s digital-out-of-home advertising platform, among other areas under evaluation.

LG’s AC and DC charging stations will be operated by ChargePoint software to form the new offerings, and the companies have begun exploring opportunities that would allow LG to bolster ChargePoint’s expansive network of more than 306,000 charging ports. In turn, ChargePoint, its customers and its drivers would benefit from LG’s EV chargers in use cases where ChargePoint does not currently offer an ideal hardware solution.

The companies expect that solutions formed by this strategic partnership will enable a competitive package for public sector infrastructure projects, where determining criteria include high-quality domestic production and elevated information security levels. LG’s U.S.-made EV chargers are UL-certified for charging stability and ENERGY-STAR-certified for efficiency. These chargers will be paired with ChargePoint’s cloud software, which has been FedRAMP* authorized enabling bidding for U.S. federal government projects.

Through its collaborations with ChargePoint, LG expects to elevate its position in the highly competitive EV charger market and reinforce its reputation as a reliable, innovative EV charging solutions provider. This underscores LG’s commitment to expanding its presence in the global EV charging infrastructure market and builds on the momentum created by its new factory for advanced EV charger stations, which opened earlier this year in Fort Worth, Texas.
