New-look ecarNI Charge Point Map

Dec
15

A new look ecarni charge point map has been introduced to greatly improve the accuracy and reliability of the information provided to electric vehicle (EV) drivers.

The new look map will allow drivers to filter by electric vehicle charge point type: CHAdeMO (for Nissan/Mitsubishi vehicles): CCS/Combo (for BMW/VW etc) and Fast AC for Renault owners. Additionally, integration of turn-by-turn navigation powered by Google Maps provides EV drivers with the option of being guided directly to the most convenient electric vehicle charge point.

The type 22kW AC and rapid chargers appear on the map as 'Free', as there is currently no cost to use any of the chargers in Northern Ireland. A green icon means the charger is available, a blue icon means the charger is in use.

A range of new icons have been introduced to convey additional features including, charge point occupancy status information which will provides EV drivers with a better indication of the real time operations of the charge points on the network, based on the most up-to date information available to us.

ecarNI is continually monitoring and fine-tuning the information being provided to all EV drivers to ensure it is as accurate and reliable as possible. To assist us during this period, we would greatly value your input.

Feedback on the usefulness, effectiveness and accuracy of the information being delivered should be sent to ecarni@esb.ie.
