Parkopedia launches new service to unify fragmented public EV charging

Parkopedia has launched its new ‘Park and Charge’ service that aims to unify the world’s fragmented public electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.

The company said the new service will enable EV drivers to accurately find, authorise, pay and manage charging sessions, all in one place from within their vehicles. All charging providers and payment methods will be aggregated, combined with parking data and payment services “to tackle the huge task of simplifying the EV charging network for drivers”.

The business has an existing database of 70 million parking spaces globally and will integrate data to help find EV charger locations using point of interest data, including chargers located inside indoor facilities without GPS.

Park and Charge will also enable in-vehicle EV charger activation, regardless of service provider, it will also enable in-vehicle EV charging payments, regardless of provider, as well as comprehensive reporting and billing systems.

These services will be made available to car manufacturers to integrate them into vehicles’ connected car services.

Adam Woolway, has been appointed head of EV at Parkopedia to lead the company’s services in this area.

Previously Woolway co-founded Plugsurfing, an app that helps EV drivers to find and pay for charging at more than 250,000 points across Europe.

Most recently, Woolway has been the CEO of Alluto, a joint venture of LG Electronics and Luxoft, focusing on redefining automotive operating systems and in-car entertainment.

Eugene Tsyrklevich, founder and chief executive of Parkopedia, said: “Adam shares Parkopedia’s passion to unify the highly fragmented EV charging industry and apply a leading standardisation to the charging process, enabling a frictionless user experience for drivers.

“Adam’s knowledge of the industry and his experience of aggregating charging point operators, through to delivering a successful user interface at Plugsurfing, makes him the ideal candidate to lead our EV initiatives.”
