It doesn’t make the “front page news” often, but EV roaming matters quite a lot to EV adoption! Offering convenience and options to EV drivers when it comes to public charging is a key pillar of transportation electrification alongside a growing & reliable infrastructure.
EV roaming means that EV drivers can access a wide range of public charging stations using a single account on their preferred method of payment. It exists precisely to simplify the charging experience by making it flexible and seamless for EV drivers
EV roaming has to be tackled to get to the next level of EV adoption. This is also supported byserious independent research conducted in Canada by Pollution Probe that found that 37% of survey respondents are not aware of any roaming agreements between network operators, and only about 6% of respondents had a clear understanding of the scope of these agreements. The Agora initiative will definitely help bring EV roaming higher on the agenda of EV adoption.
