Charge point manufacturers invited to sign up to new Swarco eVolt platform
Charging point supplier Swarco eVolt has launched a pan-European new network for its own eVolt charging points as well as third party-manufactured charging stations.
Dubbed Swarco E.Connect, the network can be accessed using an app or an RFID access card – purchased for a one-off cost of £10 – with no connection fees for using the charge points in the network.
The app also provides details of the location and live status of all charging points via an automated live-map, which can also be viewed online, while a journey planner feature also gives drivers the chance to plan ahead.
For charge point owners, Swarco E.Connect can be integrated into existing parking management systems and can also incorporate fault management processes so that any historic, technical issues with the charge points can be viewed. Advanced reporting tools including environmental impact statistics, such as comparative national data on carbon emissions, can be accessed via the online portal. Automated usage statistics are delivered in a weekly report.
Both drivers and charge point owners are also offered access to a 24/7 helpline.
Commenting on the benefits to drivers and charge point owners, Justin Meyer, general manager at Swarco eVolt, said: “The advanced reporting tools available will give owners accurate and insightful data on the environmental impact of the charging points.”
“E.Connect is unique in the sense that EV drivers can join, access the network and charge their vehicle completely free of charge. We are committed to lowering emissions providing reliable and high-quality charging infrastructure across the UK, Europe and beyond.”
