The Interoperability of Public EV Charging Networks in the UK
REA Position Paper
Building on ‘ad hoc’ and creating the foundations for one of the best EV infrastructure networks in the world.
Daniel Brown, Policy Manager at the REA and report author comments:
“It is extremely important that the UK’s EV charging industry begins a discussion about what collaboration between charging networks could deliver for consumers, landowners, fleets, and others in the wider EV ecosystem. It’s also vital to begin a discussion about how interoperability between networks can be of benefit to the networks themselves. Allowing customers to roam between networks, both by embracing ‘ad hoc’ payments and going beyond it, is a key step towards achieving mass-market uptake. The breadth of interest and feedback received on this report has been very welcome and indicates willingness, and a need, for such a conversation to take place.”
