The start-up

Mobile app that locates and connects electric vehicle drivers with charging points, or hosts (businesses, institutions or individuals) that have sockets available to charge their electric vehicle.

The need

‘Range anxiety’ is a major concern among drivers of electric vehicles. A map indicating charging points may not be enough to reassure drivers who are running out of battery.

The solution

Place to Plug is a platform that enables electric vehicle drivers to know the status of specific charging points and book or activate them from their smartphone. EV drivers will pay a subscription of 12 € per year and will also pay 0.99 € per each charging point booking. Charging points’ providers will pay 890€ per each charging point they may buy plus a subscription of 48 € per year.

The value proposition

  • Booking a charging point for a specific date and time.
  • Charge on thousands of charging points with a single app.
  • Charge with points from another user.
  • Smart charging points for hotels and restaurants.
  • Subscription service that will add users to an exclusive EV club.
