UK Electric Vehicle charger network must be open source

It’s not a term particularly well embedded in our collective vernacular just yet, but “EV Chargers” does of course refer to ‘Electric Vehicle Chargers’, the units we need to keep the next generation of environmentally sustainable cars on our roads.

But could EV Chargers go open source?

Eco-transport website reports this week on Charge Your Car Limited, a project originating in the North East that is part of the Department for Transport’s Plugged in Places project funded by One North East, OLEV, public and private partners

NOTE: Over 60 partners in the North East including all twelve local authorities, private businesses, transport providers, academia, NHS, retailers, business park operators, fleet operators and electricity distributors/suppliers are already signed up to host chargers.

Charge Your Car has aspirations to become the first national EV Charger network open to any driver.

As such, it is said to be taking a markedly open architectural approach to the development, creation and management of its part in the UK’s EV recharging infrastructure.
