The market for electric vehicles has doubled every year since 2011. With this growth comes more charging points and more network operators. The problem is that many of these networks remain closed.

The Problem

Each network has its own payment system requiring an individual RFID card or contract. Currently, you could need over 70 contracts to charge throughout Germany. That is not only inefficient, it also holds back the acceptance of emobility.

The Solution: PlugSurfing

PlugSurfing was founded to solve the problem of range anxiety, initially by connecting private charging points to EV drivers. In the meantime the team have developed a payment system for EV charging which acts as an interface between the driver and the operator. With the app or Charging Key, drivers can now charge at thousands of charging points in Europe. PlugSurfing takes care of all of the billing and clearing between parties.
