HERE Technologies, one of the world leader of in-car navigation and location services, joined GIREVE’s platform to help users locate available nearby EV charging points.

Thanks to this partnership with GIREVE, a renown aggregator of static and real-time data, HERE adds a new and important source of data to its global charging point location solution HERE EV Charge Point API.

EV drivers looking for the next charging point on their trip can now rest assured that using this service, they will receive reliable data on its location and technical characteristics. On some charging stations they will also be able to check the availability of the charging point.

This new partnership embraces our vision which aims at creating an enormous index of the physical world, comprising data from HERE and third parties, about people, places and things in our world. The HERE Open Location Platform (OLP) is providing access to a vast and highly accurate digital representation of the world.” Edzard Overbeek, CEO HERE Technologies, explains. “GIREVE’s excellent coverage in Europe, its thorough verification process of the network’s status and its direct connection with charging operators are elements that further prove its quality to all actors that benefit from our integrated service through the HERE EV Charging Stations offer”

EV drivers can easily and quickly access to an accurate and comprehensive map of all charging points, ensuring an optimized and seamless user experience.

“This partnership with HERE makes us proud and happy, as it will give European charging infrastructure more visibility. Given the expected implementation of hundreds of thousand charging points by 2025, GIREVE’s aggregator role is essential to the development of navigation services” Bruno Lebrun, CEO of GIREVE
