Blink is dedicated to slowing climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions caused by transportation.
Blink supports this mission through the build-out of EV charging infrastructure across the US and around the world aiding in adoption of electric vehicles.
Company founded as Car Charging Group, Inc (“CarCharging”).
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.
Expanded features on EV charging stations owned by Blink and operated on the Blink Network, including offering kilowatt-hour (“kWh”) pricing, reducing time-based EV charging increments, and offering remote start functionality.
Introduced new feature on Blink Network for capturing fleet vehicle odometer information. Named Schneider Electric’s former Head of North America EV Solutions, Mike Calise, as Chief Executive Officer.
Redesigned the Blink Mobile application to provide EV drivers with a streamlined user experience and new and enhanced features.
The Company name changed from Car Charging Group, Inc. to Blink Charging Co. (“Blink Charging”) and launched its new website.
Blink Charging and EUNICE ENERGY GROUP (EEG) are setting up a joint venture aimed at the European Electric Vehicle Charging (EV) market.
