In this section, we explain how to structure your EVSE Network.
EVSE groups allow you to organize your charging points and structure your network. You can create as many EVSE groups per network as you deem necessary.
Creating an EVSE group is similar to setting up the EVSE network: to create an EVSE group, you simply click on the “Add EVSEs group“ button on the EVSE network Detail page. The dialogue will then prompt you to choose a name for the group. Again, there are no specific format requirements for this field. The character limit is set to 30.
Once you confirm the creation of the group, a split screen is displayed: the lower part of the screen, shows the “Unassigned EVSEs“ list, while the upper part shows the “Assigned EVSEs“ list. Unassigned EVSEs are all charging points pushed to the intercharge network that are not yet part of an EVSE group. To support you in identifying each EVSE listed, we display some key information on EVSE ID, location, power type, and output.
You can move an EVSE from the unassigned list to the assigned list by moving it to a group. Each EVSE can be part of only one EVSE network, and only one EVSE group at once. You are free to decide which criteria to use to assign one or more EVSEs to a group. We have introduced filters to help you select the right EVSEs in both assigned and unassigned lists.
To speed up the EVSE group creation, you can select multiple EVSEs from the unassigned list and then click on “Assign EVSEs”. A dialog is displayed with a drop-down menu for the group selection and, once you confirm which group you would like to move the EVSEs to, they will be listed under the “Assigned EVSEs“ list of that group.
As long as the EVSE network is in the draft, EVSEs can be moved from one group to another other at will. Once the status of the network changes to “Active”, there will be some limitations in the changes you can make on the network. Please refer to the section “Service Offer for Next Generation Pricing” for further details.
Once all EVSEs have been assigned to a group, you create a service offer with Next Generation Pricing.
HIGHLIGHT: In order to be linked to tariffs, all EVSEs of a network must be assigned to a group. If one or more EVSEs are not linked to any group their price will be automatically set to zero once the service offer is activated.
