Duplicate chargers

Recommended Posts

Prepping for the arrival of our Enyaq, and been looking into ABRP and noticed there are some duplicate chargers listed. I was wondering how the chargers are matched from different sources to 'de-dupe' them?

Example - Sandbach below - listed on Going Electric and Open Charge Map



I am happy to edit either/both of them so that they will match up as the same one and only list once. I ask as the charging speeds are wrong and should be 60kW, so want to edit them so ABRP suggest the right chargers. 

Also if they have conflicting information, how does ABRP decide which to use? Say one reports them as 120kW and the other at 60kW, how does it decide which to use?

Ecotricity seems to have sold "Electric Highway" to Gridserve. So the merging here did not work correctly as we did not know it. I just fixed that. So from tomorrow on you should only see Gridserve Electric Highway and not ecotricity anymore. If there is anything wrong with that please let me know.

I think we normally prefer data we get directly from the CPOs or other live data sources over static sources like Goingelectric. If you notice some chargers that are remarkably wrong, please drop us a message here. I will check about that charger, as i can confirm via Gridserve website, that the charger has 60kW.

Hi Samuel,

Your work has fixed it and I can see it listed properly now. I think there are a few other EH chargers listed as 120kW on GoingElectric so I will get them updated and let you know if any are showing twice on ABRP. 

Gridserve have recently announced they are integrated with zap-map to show locations and charger statuses. Is this something ABRP have planned (or could plan)? You guys already have better routing than Zap-Map so would be great if you can get the same kind of automation/integration with Gridserve and other CPOs in the UK. 

Keep up the good work!

@Samuel-ABRP sorry but found another duplicate, one listed by Swarco and duplicated on Open Charge Map - likely to be different providers but actually the same chargers? 




Also been tidying up the Electric Highway/Ecotricity details on GoingElectric and can see them updating in ABRP ?

If you see duplicate chargers, please copy the link to the charger. On bottom right click "share" and you will get a link to the charger. That makes it easier for us to quickly check.


Quick googling of MFG and Swarco seems to indicate that Swarco is the operator and MFG is partnering with them. Will check if we can also fix this.

@Samuel-ABRP did you get GridServe added properly? I can see some listed now where it doesn't give you the option to edit them, presumably as they've been pulled in properly now? That's awesome if they have - good work! Not being negative but looks like they don't have live status like you can get in Zap-Map (yet)?
