A new approach to providing users of electric vehicles with easy access to public charge stations throughout Europe has been launched at the International Emobility Conference in Berlin.
Intercharge is a joint venture by BMW Group, Bosch, Daimler AG, EnBW, RWE and Siemens and allows users of electric vehicles to charge at a Europe-wide network of charging infrastructures connected via eRoaming under a single contract.
Managing director of the venture, Andreas Pfeiffer, said: “By starting the eRoaming platform we and our partners have provided the solution to a fundamental emobility issue. Intercharge will enable all users of electric vehicles to charge easily and anywhere.”
Member of BMW’s board of management, Dr Herbert Diess, added: “It is our aim that users of electric vehicles can charge anywhere and easily. This joint initiative enables us to leave national and regional stand-alone solutions behind and to create a European network that connects the different charge point operators and is available to all users.”
