You can offer your clients access to the be.ENERGISED COMMUNITY charging stations in connection with the be.ENERGISED roaming hub. You will therefore access a large network of charging stations, which are operated on the basis of the be.ENERGISED platform. You can thus offer your customers access to third party charging stations with a high level of automation. To do this, please follow these steps:
Activate the be.ENERGISED roaming hub
Please make sure that the be.ENERGISED roaming hub is enabled in your entity. Please follow the guidelines in this manual.
Create a contract group
In order to grant your customers access to the be.ENERIGSED COMMUNITY charging stations, you must first configure your entity’s basic contractual relationships. By activating the be.ENERGISED roaming hub, you will have basic access to all charging stations in the be.ENERGISED COMMUNITY. The charging stations’ rate terms will be determined, on an individual basis, by the respective operator. To use the pricing of these charging stations, you can activate "Enable automated cost calculation for COMMUNITY charging processes” in your EMP sales rate.
The tariff conditions of the charging station are determined by the operator of the charging station. For this reason, you must decide which charging stations should be available in your instance.
In order to enable the charging stations, please go to the tab Roaming/be.ENERGISED roaming hub/Settings, and follow these steps:
- Go to the tab Contract Groups (be.ENERGISED COMMUNITY)
- Create a new contract group and give it any name you like, for example “be.ENERGISED COMMUNITY”
- You may now enable each individual charging station to be accessed on the be.ENERGISED COMMUNITY platform at your discretion.
Please note that by activating the charging station you will only accept the charging station’s costs and conditions. You have now configured your customers’ access parameters.
Set a suitable rate
In order to give your customers access to these charging stations, you must now go to the be.ENERGISED rate management area and set a rate for the charging stations. Please follow these steps:
- Create a new tariff or select an existing EMP rate in your rate management area
- Click on Terms, which will open the rate data sheet
- Now go to the tab Roaming Hub Access Control
You will now see a long list in the access control with all charging stations that you have previously activated in the setting of the be.ENERGISED roaming hub. You can now enable an authorisation for the respective tariff for each individual charging station.
|Please note that all access management changes are saved immediately.|
Once this step is completed, authorization media, to which this tariff is assigned, can charge at all activated charging stations.
Set rates and costs
If you don’t set your own rates, your customers will either charge for free or at standard rates. In order to define specific terms for individual charging stations and clients, you must go to the rate management area and set suitable rates for each “CPO”, connection types, or “COMMUNITY rates”.
However, you also have the option to automatically charge each charging process with a surcharge. For example, you can automatically add a surcharge of e.g. 5% to your purchase price for a COMMUNITY charging process. These settings are done in the tariff data sheet of a tariff:
- In the tab sales conditions, set the option "Enable automated charging of COMMUNITY charges?" to "Yes".
- Insert in "Automatic surcharge in percent on COMMUNITY charging processes" the desired percentage, that charging processes should be automatically charged.
However, please note the following implementation of the prioritization in the handling of charging processes:
A charging station can be accessible to you both via the be.ENERGISED COMMUNITY and, if necessary, via a bilateral agreement between you and the charging station operator. A bilateral agreement can be made via the be.ENERGISED Roaming Hub.
Please enable the access to the be.ENERGISED Hub in the tab External Roaming in the station data sheet. If this is done, the charging station is available in the be.ENERGISED Roaming Hub and will be addressed via the be.ENERGISED Roaming Hub only.
If the be.ENERGISED Hub is not enabled, the charging station will be made accessible via the be.ENERGISED COMMUNITY.
The distinction of accessibility is made automatically in the system.
