As an open and flexible platform, “intercharge” connects charging station operators and emobility service providers in a neutral space with one contract and one API interface. These B2B connections provide EV drivers a seamless charging experience with the ability to easily find, access and pay for charging from any charging operator or network with one account, one app and one bill.
