10 May 2022
The Rt Hon Alok Sharma MP, Member of Parliament for Reading West and President of COP26 visited ChargePoint’s UK Research & Development facility and met ChargePoint CEO and President Pasquale Romano.
ChargePoint has more than doubled employee numbers over the past year in the UK and across Europe, including at its research and development facilities in Reading for testing and evaluation of ChargePoint’s EV charging products.

Alok toured ChargePoint’s research and development facility, where he met with the engineers and discussed ChargePoint’s investment and future plans in Reading West, the UK and Europe, as well as its contribution to global transport decarbonisation.

Pasquale Romano, ChargePoint CEO and President said: “Hosting COP26 President Alok Sharma at ChargePoint today demonstrates our commitment to working closely with leaders in the fight against climate change to accelerate the electrification of all transport. At ChargePoint, we know that to support EV growth, charging services should always offer the driver a seamless and reliable experience with charging infrastructure installed ahead of demand. To make meaningful and genuine progress on EV charging, private sector leadership and innovation is key - along with continued government support. To this end, we’re excited to invest in the UK and beyond in EV charging solutions which optimise the driver experience and encourage the speedy electrification of all transportation.”
