European regulations require electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) owners to publish their infrastructure information on the National Access Point (NAP). They are required to publish static data of their operational charging points open to the public. They must also provide dynamic data indicating availability status.
To comply with this regulatory obligation, the infrastructures owners must format their data according to a specific schema provided on data.gouv.fr. This involves updating a data with each new charging point addition or modification and ensuring imposed format. Publishing dynamic data presents an additional problem due to the frequent updates required. This operation needs to be carried out several times a day, or even per hour. Its purpose is to indicate the “charging” or “non-charging” status. Therefore, a dedicated technical connection is necessary to comply with the regulatory requirement.

The update process involves extracting information, converting it to the required format, and publishing it on the portal. These operations can be time-consuming and costly for developers if they assign a third party to handle the publication or if they receive a fine due to a missed update.
