For information on the Share&Charge app, please refer to our blog post regarding further information for the future of Share&Charge. For more technical details around this issue, please refer to our article published by our CTO, Hector Garcia.
The Share&Charge app was the first live Blockchain based mobility product in the world, allowing either owners of charging stations or drivers of electric vehicles to have an active share in the creation of the future of emobility. The Peer-to-Peer app had over 1000 registered users and included approximately 1250 charging stations across Germany. The Share&Charge app could be considered the “AirBnB of Charging Stations” where users were able to utilise for the first time a network of private charging stations as well as public charging stations. This aligns closely with the goal of Share&Charge to speed up the expansion of the charging infrastructure in Germany quickly and reliably.
The app provided an interface to the Blockchain, which allowed users to conveniently find charging stations in their area and charge hassle-free and securely through the properties of Blockchain Technology. Charging Station owners were able to independently set their own tariffs (flat rate, time-based or kWh-based) and adapt it at any time. The Share&Charge wallet handled all the billing and invoicing processes in a transparent and uncomplicated manner.
