Roaming is the ability for an EV Driver to charge on all charging networks without subscribing to each and every one of them. The EV driver subcribes to a unique e-Mobility Service Provider (eMSP) and can roam, using his unique means of access (RFID badge, mobile app) to identify, book, charge, follow the charging session and stop it, and pay all his charging sessions to his e-Mobility Service Provider. He can contact his eMSP support in case of charging issue no matter the network used.
In order to enable roaming, the eMSP first became “interoperable” with all charging network it offers its EV driver subscriber. With each network, the eMSP developped contractual, administrative, financial, technical and operational relationships..
The operator has to get an interoperability certificate to comply with the interoperability requirement of ADVENIR. This certificate can be received after publishing a roaming agreement on GIREVE’s platform. .
This publication has contractual (subscription to GIREVE’s platform) technical (certified connection to GIREVE’s platform) and operational prerequisites (publishing an offer on GIREVE’s marketplace) You need to get in touch with GIREVE as soon as possible, preferably just after the beneficiary signs the premium offer with the ADVENIR program.
WARNING: your operator can use GIREVE for your charging network operations. In this case, you should get in touch with them to get your interoperability certificate.
