EVmatch, Inc.

EVmatch is a peer-to-peer network for electric vehicle (EV) charging. The service allows EV drivers to easily find and reserve charging stations anywhere they go by enabling access to the underutilized private charging market. EVmatch reduces the stress in locating an available charger and can immediately grow the public charging network by over 20x its existing size with no added infrastructure. The EVmatch application includes mapping, reservations, payment processing, and a proprietary pricing algorithm that accurately estimates the cost of each charging transaction. EVmatch recently launched its service in California and has 350 users to date. Initially, the company is targeting single-family residential charging station owners as hosts, but with the integration of compatible charging hardware, will expand its network to include chargers at workplaces and multi-family dwellings. By using EV charging infrastructure more efficiently, EVmatch reduces range anxiety and will eliminate the number one barrier to consumer adoption of electric vehicles – lack of reliable charging.
