How can I share my charging station using Share&Charge?

In order to assure that chargers are able to find your charging location in the Share&Charge app, you need to register your charging station and select the appropriate tariff.

Depending on your charging station, we offer you up to 3 different tariffs.

For our Flatrate tariff, you can immediately offer your charging station after the registration. Charging in this case takes place on a trust basis, and billing is handled by Share&Charge. For the other tariffs – time-based tariff as well as kWh-based tariff you need a Share&Charge capable charging station.

How can I prevent someone without authorization and pay with me?

Unauthorized charges can be easily and safely prevented with the Share&Charge module and a relay / contactor (controllable switch). Our app will then unload the charging station via the Share&Charge module.

Connect the station with Share&Charge

In order to be able to integrate your charging station, which is already equipped with the  Share&Charge module, into our system, it must be connected to the Internet. This is currently done via your private W-LAN, which can be easily connected using Wireless Protected Setup (WPS). The Share&Charge module then automatically starts the WPS mode at initial setup. In order to connect to the network, your DSL router / access point must also be set to WPS mode. For this, usually only one button at the router / access point has to be pressed.

Upgrade the charging station with the Share&Charge Module

In order to be able to retrofit your charging station with the Share&Charge Module, some space is required within the charging station. Our module is currently installed on a DIN rail. The size of the module is currently 90 x 90 x 60 mm. In addition, your charging station must have a relay / contactor (controllable switch).

Since the charging stations vary a lot, it is easiest to contact us to find the best solution for you.

Share&Charge Hackathon

We are looking for charging station manufacturers and mobility providers who are interested to be a part of our Share&Charge network!

As the Share&Charge team, we believe that the mobility of the 21st century is not about ownership, but about managing abundance.

Share&Charge is more than a peer-to-peer community electric vehicle charging. We are building Share&Charge with the vision of creating a platform in which various goods can be organized, shared and paid for.

We have decided to create Share&Charge with an ‘open API’ on blockchain because we believe the IT infrastructure created will become more valuable as more stakeholders in the mobility sector join the platform.

We would like to give you & your ideas room on our Share&Charge platform, give you the opportunity to further develop the platform and make it the market place for ioT mobility devices!
