Charge point operator and e-mobility service provider
A network of chargers is operated by a charge point operator. The charge point operator’s task is to maintain, operate and upgrade the charging stations. Recharge is a charge point operator, and we have several hundred charging stations throughout the Nordic region.
Charge point operators usually offer a payment method where you don’t need to register as a customer, such as our drop-in methods, , where you can pay by SMS or with a QR code.
We also give others the opportunity to sell their charging services through our charging stations. We call them e-mobility service providers. E-mobility service providers offer services that allow EV drivers to pay and start charging at our charging stations. These service providers set their own prices, terms and conditions, and most offer payment with an app or an RFID card or key fob.
CPO & EMP
CPO stands for charge point operator.
EMP stands for E-Mobility Service Provider
Most offer an RFID card or key fob or payment via an app. In Norway you can also use RFID tags from the Norwegian Automobile Association (NAF) and the Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association in our network, but then you must first register a member profile with the company in question.
In an open network, the charge point operator offers one or more e-mobility service providers. Then, EV drivers can choose between different e-mobility service providers and are thus free to choose who they want to buy electricity from when they charge. You can either pay using our drop-in service or by registering as a customer with one of our e-mobility service providers.
Most offer an RFID card or key fob or payment via an app.
Examples of open networks: Ionity (offers rapid charging only) or Recharge (we charge all EV models).
