About Charge Your Car

Charge Your Car is the UK’s pay-as-you-go electric vehicle (EV) charging network. For EV drivers, CYC makes it simpler and more convenient to travel across the UK. They provide a fully managed service that makes charge points accessible to all EV drivers, so that they can set the tariff for each charge point on the network and collect revenue from charge points on their behalf.

Every charge point features an active display to indicate the status of the charge point, together with a telephone helpdesk number for assistance or to report a fault. In addition, a smartphone app is available to make it even easier to find and use the Charge solution.

Eseye is all about finding environmentally friendly ways to improve quality of life now and for the future. We’re proud to be providing Charge Your Car with the reliable AnyNet solution as EV charging and electric vehicles are a great way to lower carbon footprints and energy usage.

The challenge

Charge Your Car needed a reliable way of communicating between the charge points and their servers to monitor and charge for energy usage.

The solution

Eseye provided Charge Your Car with the AnyNet SIM to enable reliable communication over GPRS.

The current network consists of approximately 1600 free-to-use or pay-to-use charge points and that number is growing every day; market intelligence analyst, Navigant Research, predicts EV wireless chargers will reach 300,000 by 2022.

Our decision to work with Eseye stems from the fact that we believe they are the only M2M specialist with such deep device and connectivity expertise. Their ability to manage the end-to-end connected solution for our fixed point EV charge stations was the main driver for our decision to choose Eseye as our partner. In addition, their 24/7 support for our infrastructure was key.
