How to recharge the electric car in Europe

To recharge the electric car in several countries in Europe, you need to use an eRoaming service, if you are from another country. This type of roaming requires an agreement between two or  more companies who manage e-car charge services.

It is advisable to check that the operator to which you subscribe has agreements with international circuits and in which countries, in order to guarantee access to top-up abroad.

ERoaming networks

The largest eRoaming networks (RNOs) through the same contract (therefore the same application) are managed by the Shell Recharge app and by Hubject, with the intercharge app.

Furthermore, in August 2020, the Italian company EnelX announced that it had entered into an interoperability agreement with several European Charger Point Operators (CPOs), such as Last Miles Solutions, has-to-be and E.ON.

Over 50,000 charging points across Europe

This allows you to have a total of over 50,000 charging points throughout Europe, having access to all using the same app, Juicepass.

This agreement creates a unique network that unites Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands and Italy and guarantees affordable prices.

Furthermore, other agreements have been made by Duferco Energia, together with EnelX, Hera Comm, Neogy and NextCharge. Another collaboration sees the agreement between BeCharge and Evway.

Tesla Supercharger of the European Union

Tesla owners, on the other hand, have access to recharge through all Tesla Superchargers in the European Union, and the price is around € 0.30 per kWh in all stations.

Carefully evaluate applications, cards and subscriptions to find the best solution

In conclusion, the best way to be sure of being able to recharge your electric vehicle is to untangle the applications, cards and subscriptions in order not to have any nasty surprises, taking into account the fact that the vast majority of recharging points in Europe are connected through eRoaming agreements.

However, it must be considered that the network of recharging points, as well as being constantly growing, is constantly connected. Consequently, charging an electric car is not a problem today and it won’t be in the future.
