By / 2 weeks ago / Tech / No Comments

In response to the recent Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulations 2017 and the Autonomous and Electric Vehicles Bill, which is currently going through Parliament, Cenex will host two workshops – one for data providers and one data users – seeking input from significant stakeholders on the preferred direction of development of the NCR.

Run since 2011, the National Chargepoint Registry (NCR) holds operators’ data on chargepoint locations, compatibility and hours of operation. The NCR has recently been taken over by Cenex, in partnership with Apetrel Systems.

The first workshop (10.30am-12.30pm) is planned to look at the mechanisms required to gather data from external sources such as back offices and databases, and consider the data that could be made available.

The second workshop (1.30pm-3.30pm) is planned to focus on the needs of users (particularly developers using data in applications and products).

The workshops will run on the same day and overlap over lunch to provide a networking opportunity between the two stakeholder groups, Cenex added.

Paul Pepper, Technical Director, Apetrel Systems said, “If you use NCR data, this is your chance to shape the future direction!”
