Focusing on overall network performance and the holistic customer experience, EVgo has accomplished the following in the different pillars of the ReNew program:
"We launched EVgo ReNew in January because we know charging infrastructure reliability is key to strengthening consumer confidence in EVs and propelling the massive market transformation needed to achieve an all-electric future," said Dennis Kish, Chief Operating Officer at EVgo. "EVgo is creating the fast charging network that all EV drivers deserve, and we'll continue to bolster our network to help deliver a truly seamless customer experience for everyone who plugs into an EVgo fast charger."
Complementary to ReNew are EVgo's efforts to develop customer education programs, including Charge Talk, a video series focused on answering EV drivers' biggest EV charging questions, and a new QR code campaign at select stations that links to "charging 101" toolkits with videos and how-to content to help new EV drivers successfully charge for the first time. The Company also launched dealership education pilots with two automaker partners to equip dealer staff with resources to support customers purchasing or leasing an EV for the first time.
Drawing from more than a decade of experience deploying fast charging infrastructure, as well as extensive technical expertise from the engineering team at its Innovation Lab, EVgo also released a new best practice guide on charger reliability through its Connect the Watts™ initiative. The document outlines best practices to address ecosystem-wide issues at the root to solve charger reliability, with a focus on codes and standards improvements, vehicle interoperability and more.
