Ad hoc charging of electric vehicles is now possible at 700 charging points in Germany

The eRoaming platform allows B2B partners inter-carrier charging of electric vehicles across all of Europe

Energy provider EnBW has equipped its network of charging stations with Intercharge Direct, a direct payment system from Hubject, an eRoaming provider.

 

According to Hubject this first cross-company direct payment solution makes ad hoc charging of electric vehicles possible. The charging process can be digitally activated and paid for on a mobile website using a smartphone.

 

In addition, as a result of the digital networking of charging stations through Hubject’s system, all EnBW charge points can also be located using other providers’ navigation systems and apps and can be used either spontaneously or with a contract.

 

“We want people with electric cars to be able to set off without having to worry about range or where they are going to charge up,” said Lars Walch, head of electromobility at EnBW. “The new direct payment solution on the mobile website makes it easier to use our charge points and gives the customer maximum independence. This flexibility also convinces drivers needing to charge spontaneously at EnBW stations and offers every EV driver access to our charge points.”

 

The Federal Government’s planned amendment of the German Charging Station Act, which is anticipated for the end of 2016, stipulates that drivers of electric vehicles be able to use any publicly accessible charging station, even without entering into a long-term contract with a provider. Hubject’s solution enables charge point operators to offer contract-based charging for customers with a contract, as well as the option to charge spontaneously.

 

“Together with EnBW, we want to make using charging stations an intuitive and up-to-date process for the drivers of electric vehicles,” added Thomas Daiber, CEO of Hubject. “With Intercharge Direct, charging in public spaces is also attractive for “passing customers” and people who just need a top-up.”

 

Hubject’s eRoaming platform allows B2B partners inter-carrier charging of electric vehicles across all of Europe. Thus, the joint venture contributes to the networking of charging infrastructure, service providers and mobility providers.
