Frequently Asked Questions
about EV Roaming
1 What is Range Anxiety?
The feeling of, "Oh, my electric vehicle (EV) battery is going to drain fully on the way and I will be stranded" Is called "Range Anxiety." More often than not, this psychological quirk is why people hesitate to switch to EVs.
2 Is Range Anxiety justifiable?
Probably yes. Though the charging eco system has been developed quite a bit in the last couple of years, discoverability of these facilities are still minimal, making it less usable at any point in time and location.
3 What is EV Roaming?
EV Roaming or eRoaming is a technology that allows people to charge an electric vehicle at charging stations setup by different charge providers with whom the owner has no past relationship with. It is very similar to mobile phone network roaming. This is possible by making different charging networks interoperable by deploying protocols that allows the chargepoints to be shared between networks.
4 What's the benefit of EV Roaming?
It helps in several ways than one for drivers and eco system players alike. The primary purpose is to reduce range anxiety. Roaming generally allows drivers to have more places to charge and helps them find it easily.
5 What is a Chargepoint Operator (CPO)?
A CPO sets up charging stations on the road or on-premise. They allow customers to charge or swap at their stations, usually for a price. India has 40-50 such companies at the time of writing (Well, you must've guessed, it is increasing rapidly!)
6 What is an eMobility Service Provider?
An Electric Mobility Service Provider (eMSP or MSP) helps the customers on-the-road by providing helpful services to locate stations, navigate between destinations or giving other helpful information.
