State Grid is the first Chinese company in the sector to receive the most prestigious honor in the US electric power industry.

It has developed a Smart Internet of Electric Vehicles Charging Network, the largest EV charging network in the world, which reflects SGCC's development goal of becoming a top world energy internet company, and also showcases the company's growing international influence.

As of April, the company had established 6,286 charging stations and 56,000 charging piles throughout China. The plan of "9 East-West Highways, 9 North-South Highways, 2 Beltways" covers almost 31,000 kilometers of distance in more than 150 cities. The EV charging platform also has enabled access of 183,000 charging piles from other service operators, which effectively promotes the development of China's EV industry.
