Finding charging stations made easy with evway and what3words
“A lot of locations are difficult for people to communicate because they don’t have an address: a picnic spot in the park, a water fountain, a bus stop and, for EV drivers, charging points which are dotted along the sides of roads and highways. Even though charging stations are becoming more common, it’s important for drivers to know exactly where they are so they can plan their routes accordingly and make sure they don’t run out of power mid-trip.
evway is an online map and app that displays 120,000 charging points across Europe, and provides useful information such as power, socket type, access modalities, and payment options. To help drivers find the stations easily, evway now also provides a 3 word address for every charging station.
