'Chargie' is the name of a new UK-based start-up that aims to make it easier for electric vehicle owners to get connected to charging points.
The service reminds of Airbnb, as those offering charge points are able to list their unit, location and price through Chargie so that a scheduled time for car-charging may be arranged.
Although many cities are now beginning to integrate infrastructure that supports electric vehicle charging, these points are often few and far in between. Because of this, the demand for these charging stations is often high, as electric vehicles must be plugged in for a significant amount of time to receive a full charge. P2P communities like Chargie have the potential to improve access to charging points for a growing number of electric vehicle owners.
