Event description

Description

The National Chargepoint Registry was established by the UK Government to provide a comprehensive database of publicly accessible chargepoints in the UK. The aim is to provide reliable data that can be used, either directly or by third party companies, to improve the experience of EV motorists in finding and using chargepoints. The data is freely accessible under the Open Government Licence terms.

The NCR has been running since 2011, and was recently taken over by Cenex, working in partnership with Apetrel Systems. The purpose of these workshops is to seek input from significant stakeholders on the preferred direction of development for the NCR over the coming months and years. The availability and format of the data in the NCR has taken on new significance with the recent publication of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulations 2017 and the Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Bill, which both seek to improve the quality of data available to the public to encourage increased use of ultra-low emission vehicles.

We are running two workshops, with one targeted towards data providers and one targeted towards data users.

  • The first session (10.30am-12.30pm) will be more technical, and look at the mechanisms required to gather data from external sources such as back offices and databases, and consider the data that could be made available.

  • The second session (1.30pm-3.30pm) is focussed on the needs of users (particularly developers using the data in their applications and products) and will consider data retrieval and the formats in which the data should be delivered in addition to the content that would be most desirable.

The workshops will run on the same day, and overlap over lunch to provide a networking opportunity between the two stakeholder groups. A full agenda will follow in the near future.
