An MSP (Mobility Service Provider) is a contractual partner for end customers for authentication and payment at charging stations and is often also called " Charging card provider". The operators of charging stations are referred to as CPO (Charge Point Operator). A CPO can also be an MSP simultaneously.
A CPO (Charge Point Operator) is an operator of a charging station or charging station network. The authentication and payment are carried out by a Mobility Service Provider (→ MSP), also known as a charging card provider. However, a CPO can also be an MSP at the same time.
Roamers are people who have signed a contract with a Mobility Service Provider of their choice. For these roamers to be able to charge at your charging station, the MSP of their choice must be connected to Elli via a roaming platform such as Hubject.
The EVSE-ID is a unique identifier for each charging point and is required to provide public charging. It starts with two letters representing the country code (e.g. DE* for Germany, FR* for France or ES* for Spain). The next three letters represent the operator-ID. All Elli charging stations contain GCE*. The following digits are chosen individually and are continuous for each charging point at the station.
The EVSE-ID is located on the Elli stickers for public charging stations.
No, currently you cannot buy more third-party charging stations and upgrade them with our software, as the implementation of the software takes place during the manufacturing process. This means that only the charging stations distributed by Volkswagen Group After Sales are pre-installed with our software by the manufacturer, but not those from third-party suppliers. An intervention in the software equipment of charging stations by third- party providers is currently not possible.
Currently, the following options are available for charging at public charging stations:
Once you have made the station public in the Elli Management Console (Public Mode), it will be made available for charging to all connected third parties within the next 24h, for example in an app.At the same time, an Elli Charge & Go sticker will be created, which will arrive per charging point for your charging station in 10-12 days. You will also receive an email with the sticker manual, which will guide you through the process of placing the stickers on your charging station in the right place.
Drivers can also charge at the charging stations with Elli Charge & Go without charging service by entering credit card data in a web form, or by simply selecting Google Pay or Apple Pay as a payment method. To do so, drivers can simply scan the QR-Code or visit the website www.charge.elli.eco - both can be found on the Elli Charge & Go stickers.If there is no QR-Code, you can also simply enter the ID of the charging port.
