Testimonials

Alessandro Alberani

The installation went completely smooth. I had prepared the gateway according to the simple instructions provided. The technician spent about 45 – 60 minutes on the installation. The service runs flawlessly and is very user-friendly.

It’s a great solution for the user. I don’t have to worry about anything anymore. Now I plug the vehicle charging connector into my car, a window opens in the web app, I say whether it’s a business or private charging process and that’s it. It’s all very easy.

Your advantages at a glance

For companies with their own vehicle fleet

Companies with their own vehicle fleet benefit from cost savings due to the kWh-accurate billing, the clear separation between private home charging station and business billing solution, and higher employee satisfaction. In addition, retrofitting existing home charging stations is environmentally friendly and therefore preferable to replacing them with a smart home charging station.

For MSPs

Mobility Service Providers (MSPs) gain enormous scaling potential through independence from (existing) home charging stations. At the same time, MSPs can increase customer satisfaction by offering a fast, flexible, cost-effective and sustainable alternative to home charging stations..

For fleet managers

Fleet managers are provided with a fast, simple and scalable option for charging company cars in the charge@home area. In addition, the flexible connectivity of existing home charging stations is also easy on their budgets. The ensured MID conformity of the electricity meters used guarantees accurate and legally compliant reimbursement.

For company car drivers

Company car drivers are given maximum flexibility and independence both when selecting new home charging stations (greenfield) and when integrating existing home charging stations (brownfield). In addition, they also benefit from the kWh-exact reimbursement of electricity costs as well as from strong privacy protection with regard to private charging.

Simple Integration

The Charge Repay Service offers various data interfaces and data export options. This means that the service can be perfectly integrated into your existing systems. One of the options is the connection to an e-mobility backend via OCPP. The service behaves like a conventional home charging station, so that the integration effort is kept to a minimum.

What you always wanted to know about the Charge Repay Service

Thanks to our three different connection variants, all common home wallboxes can be connected to the Charge Repay Service.

The installation of the gateway is explained step by step in our intuitive onboarding process. Basically, anyone can perform the installation. The installation is equivalent to the integration of any smart home product into the home network, such as a robot vacuum cleaner, sound system, smart light system, etc.

Yes, the installation of the MID meter may only be carried out by a certified electrician. In this case, we cooperate with a Germany-wide service network, which will gladly take care of the installation of the MID meter. After a video inspection, the control cabinet is checked for the possibility of installation. Subsequently, our technicians arrange an appointment for the installation on site.

Yes, we already work with the most common backend systems on the market and thus have the possibility to seamlessly integrate our service into your existing IT infrastructure. In addition, we offer open interfaces to our backend and can easily transfer the data to a wide variety of systems via the common communication protocols (OCPP , REST).

When billing in the home sector, the specifications of the measurement and calibration law must be respected, just as in the public sector. As long as a 1-to-1 relationship between the billing party (company) and the consumer (electric company car) can be guaranteed in the home sector, a simple MID meter is sufficient.

In order to enable the charging of private vehicles at the home charging station, we have developed a patented process that complies with the requirements of the measurement and calibration law and is still more cost-effective than the installation of a “calibration-conform” home wallbox.

No replacement required

Regardless of whether a home charging station is already installed at the company car driver’s premises or a new one is to be purchased. With the Charge Repay Service, data can be recorded for reimbursement in compliance with calibration law, regardless of the home charging station. The existing installation determines which additional components are required. If a home charging station already has an MID meter and can communicate in encrypted form with an OCPP backend, connection is possible without any additional hardware.

However, there is the restriction that only the company car is charged at the charging point. If an MID meter is installed, but there is no possibility of encrypted communication with a backend, the Charge Repay Gateway can be used. The Charge Repay Gateway collects the data via local interfaces of the home charging station and forwards it encrypted to the Charge Repay Service.

If it is a “dumb” home charging station without MID meter, an additional meter can be installed in the supply line to the wallbox. In combination with the Charge Repay Gateway, the charging processes are recorded by a patented procedure and forwarded to the Charge Repay Service. With the last type of connection, it is also possible to charge additional vehicles at the charging point without losing compliance with calibration law.
