A new service named ‘EV Roam’ is being provided by Renewable Energy Assurance Limited (REAL), in partnership with the Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology (REA). It is aimed to “help facilitate the uptake of roaming between EV charging networks in the UK”.
EV Roam is designed to work by registering unique identification codes to be used by Charge Point Operators and eMobility Service Providers. EV Roam will then serve as an ID Registration Organisation (IDRO) for the entire UK. The first partners have already signed on to the registration service, including Zap-Map, Drivenergy, and Octopus Energy.
“REAL is in an ideal position to provide this important service alongside the other schemes we run in the renewable energy and circular economy sectors,” says Virginia Graham, Chief Executive of Renewable Energy Assurance, “We work in an independent and not-for-profit manner, and any profits from EV Roam will be recycled back into the organisation so we can grow other schemes crucial to the growth of the sector.”
