Helping ABRP - Charge Networks

One of the most important things for the accuracy of our plans is the knowledge of Charging Stations.  To help with this knowledge, there are several ways you can help us out:

Contributing to Our Charge Database Partners

Most of our charger knowledge comes from a few excellent databases.  The main ones which are editable are:

  • Supercharge.info - A community run map of supercharging locations
  • Open Charge Map - An open source database of all types of charging locations.  Comprehensive, but sometimes out of date
  • GoingElectric - Focused mainly near Germany, but covers most of Europe
  • Uppladdning.nu - Another open database which focuses mainly on Scandinavia, but covers most of Europe. Note! Only to be used for the following countries; Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden.

A submission made to any of these databases will update plans on A Better Routeplanner within 24 hours.  You can easily find direct links to edit by finding a charger which is out of date on our map, click 'actions' and selecting the edit link on the interface:

This will take you directly to the edit page we have associated with that location.

Raising Awareness with Charge Networks

The best way to improve our charger knowledge is to get it straight from the source.  We're more than happy to work on direct interconnects with all charge networks, no matter how big or small.  We often find, however, they're hard to get in contact with.  If there's a charge network you'd like us to have a direct interconnect with you can send them a tweet:

Quote

@{network} - I love using your chargers on road trips, and I want to use @RouteBetter to plan using your chargers.  If you connect your chargers with their routing, that would be amazing!

Or letter/email:

Quote

To whom it may concern at {Charge Network}

I regularly use your chargers on my electric road trips, and like to use A Better Routeplanner to plan.  I'd love to get more accurate data on your chargers so I can plan my road trips more effectively using your stations.

You can email them at contact@abetterrouteplanner.com or tweet @RouteBetter

Looking forward to an amazing electric drive!

{Your name}

Once we have a direct interconnect we can provide:

  • Automatic routing around full or down stations
  • Suggest an ideal stall for you to charge in (best for your car)
  • Predictive routing using station traffic analytics (Premium feature)

And of course, for any charge networks reading this, we're happy to talk to you about integrating route planning into your own apps to better serve your drivers.

Another thing : I don't find ZEN/Proviridis network in the prefered list of charging network.
This network is in expansion (4 stations for the moment in France).

Hello
Not sure the good location to post it.
Can you add "ZEN / Proviridis" network in the network section of ABRP?

Hi @denischti59,

If we have their chargers but the network name is incorrect, please submit a post in 'support' or 'features' with more information about the network (country, charger types, website link etc.).

If on the other hand we don't have any if their chargers, you may read what can be done in the article above.
