Connected Electric Vehicle charging with Charge Your Car
ESEYE CASE STUDY
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.
Charge Your Car needed a reliable way of communicating between the charge points and their servers to monitor and charge for energy usage.
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.
With Eseye’s AnyNet solution, Charge Your Car are able to ensure they know exactly how much energy is being consumed and how much they need to charge to the customer both reliably and efficiently. There are approximately 1600 charge points already connected, with more being added every month.
