Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading global manufacturer, owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, announced today an agreement with Parkopedia, a leading global connected car and parking services provider, to integrate over 4,000 Blink EV charging locations onto the Parkopedia platform in North America. This strategic integration will grant the platform access to nearly 12,000 Blink public EV chargers, which includes 129 DC Fast Chargers.

Parkopedia is a connected car services provider used by automakers, organizations, and millions of drivers around the world to seamlessly find the closest available parking to their destination, pay for parking, and obtain information on EV charging, fuel, and tolls across 90 countries. The agreement between Blink and Parkopedia will integrate more than 4,000 Blink’s locations of nearly 12,000 publicly available Blink EV chargers into Parkopedia’s network. This collaboration between the two companies will substantially improve the EV driver’s ability to locate EV charging points, and directly address concerns about the availability of EV charging infrastructure.

“Our collaboration with Parkopedia creates a streamlined experience for EV drivers to conveniently locate Blink EV charging stations across North America,” said Jim Nemec, Chief Revenue Officer for Blink Charging. “The combination of Parkopedia’s excellence in serving drivers through convenience in parking accessibility and Blink’s extensive range of public EV chargers gives EV drivers confidence in finding a reliable charging experience wherever they are. This initiative builds upon our strategy of making it easy for EV drivers to locate Blink chargers through a variety of platforms.”

Facilitating easy access to charging options beyond one’s residence is a critical component in advancing EV adoption. A recent survey showed that 92% of current US drivers would be more likely to transition to an EV if they have access to a network like Parkopedia to locate and navigate to charging stations. Parkopedia’s network will connect EV drivers with all publicly available Blink charging choices, including an impressive tally of 11,848 L2 chargers.

“We recognize that parking and charging are increasingly interlinked and are working to simplify the process of parking and charging for drivers, as seen in this new collaboration with Blink,” commented Adam Woolway, Head of EV at Parkopedia. “This gives Parkopedia access to Blink charging stations and data, which we combine with our existing parking information to provide drivers with a seamless parking and charging experience through their in-car head units, along with accurate parking and charging availability predictions.”

Today’s announcement follows Blink’s recent Q2 2023 earnings release, the strongest in Company history, which saw total revenues increase to nearly $33 million for the quarter. Blink also announced it raised its 2023 revenue target from $100 – $110 million to $110 – $120 million and is targeting a positive adjusted EBITDA break-even run rate by December of 2024.
