Technology-Driven Approach to EV Charging
In 2021, EVgo opened its Innovation Lab, a 4,000 sq ft facility in El Segundo, CA. The Innovation Lab is where EVgo’s engineering team conduct testing to not only ensure the safety and reliability of the EVgo network, but support the success of the EV charging industry as a whole by sharing key insights from our behind-the-scenes work with automakers, equipment manufacturers, policy officials, etc.
EVgo works collaboratively with automakers around the world to ensure interoperability between all EV models and charging equipment. Ideally, vehicles are tested in the pre-production phase to identify and solve any interoperability issues before going to market. EVgo also works with automakers to solve issues found in the field by making over-the-air improvements to the vehicle, charger, or both.
Before a new model of charging equipment is deployed on the EVgo network, it goes through EVgo’s New Product Introduction (NPI) process, a rigorous program that goes beyond required industry standards to verify safety, reliability, compliance, serviceability, and cohesion within the EVgo network. Additionally, thorough regression testing is performed for hardware and software improvements on existing equipment.
