​Acquired three EV charging service providers, including 350Green and Beam Charging, New York City’s largest EV charging service provider, and became the largest EV charging services owner and operator in the United States.

Acquired Blink Network and the related Blink EV charging assets from ECOtality, Inc. As part of the transaction, we assumed the assets of “The EV Project”, for which ECOtality previously served as the project manager. The EV Project was funded by the United States Department of Energy through a federal stimulus grant of $114.8 million, possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The grants were matched by private investment, bringing the total value of the project to approximately $230 million.
