UK charging operator ChargePoint Services (not to be confused with the US firm ChargePoint) has purchased SSE’s interest in an EV charging network in Hampshire and Cornwall.
ChargePoint’s Genie platform already provided back office management for the network, which includes 23 tri-header 50 kW rapid chargers and 28 twin-socket fast chargers.
The GeniePoint Network charges drivers by kWh rather than time. Its Live Maps provide information on availability, status and pricing. Any compatible RFID card can be registered as an access card, including London’s Oyster Card and other EV network cards.
