A hardware and software platform, EV Passport, has launched to deliver an open charging platform for businesses.
Launching in America, the hardware and API-driven software from the firm enables companies to integrate EV charging platforms with their existing applications and services, ensuring a charging process which is compatible with any vehicle, the company claims.
EVPassport removes barriers to charging through an an interoperable network, providing open REST API sets for location information, real-time availability, billing rates and more. Through its Google Maps integration, drivers can see charger locations and click directly through to start a charging session without having to download an additional app or create a separate provider account.
The company’s platform enables developers to integrate live EVPassport chargers directly into their applications, electric vehicle dashboards, and other services to control the user experience and drive brand engagement.
EVPassport provides both Level 2 and DC fast chargers. All chargers are equipped with LTE and are payment-enabled, making them out-of-the-box ready for use with any EV brand. EVPassport chargers deliver drivers an app-less charging experience built around the ability to scan a QR code, pay and go. Charger owners receive an energy management solution that is customizable to meet brand standards, creates an additional source of income and meets the charging needs of all consumers.
Aaron Fisher, CEO and co-founder, EVPassport, said: “We founded EVPassport with two fundamental goals: provide the most seamless EV charging experience for drivers possible; and empower brands to control and enhance customer engagement. Our API-driven approach significantly reduces the barriers to electric vehicle adoption and increases the incentive for retail, hospitality, CRE and consumer-facing brands to install EV chargers and advance the global sustainability movement.”
