About Share&Charge:

Share&Charge is a network for all types of charging stations. On the one hand, we want to encourage and help emobilists to connect regionally and support each other and on the other hand we want to bring relevant companies and organizations to the same table in order to speed up the expansion of the charging infrastructure in Germany quickly and reliably. For this purpose we are developing the Share&Charge App, which makes the sharing of the charging stations as well as billing for the energy transaction possible. Within the charging station network the charging tariffs will be determined by the charging station owners themselves. Therefore Share&Charge is a tool for either owners of charging stations or drivers of electric vehicles to have an active share in the creation of the future of emobility.
