EV Charging for Retail: FAQ
Each country has its own EV Charging rules and regulations. The German calibration law is the strictest in the EU in terms of measuring the output of energy. be.ENERGISED is compliant with these standards. We developed the transparency software solution together with hardware manufacturers and charge point operators. The transparency software ensures charging stations are compliant with the law and consumers have an easy way to check their charging session data for accuracy using a digital key. We anticipate as EV Charging solution develops, other countries will follow Germany's lead in consumer protection for EV Charging sessions.
be.ENERGISED is also fully compliant with VAT & tax regulations in the EU and UK as well as GDPR compliant.
be.ENERGISED integrates easily with third-party systems including CRM and ERP via a customized API. This allows the exchange of data with your internal IT ecosystem. The API can be custom-built to your individual use case.
We understand that loyalty programs offering discounts and promotions vary from retailer to retailer. That is why our be.ENERGISED system is designed to provide you with charging session data so you can analyze it and develop your own loyalty programs to suit your needs. Discounts and promotions are managed in the CRM system of the individual retailer, so you maintain customer confidentiality and stay in control.
Billing and payment services are one of our core competencies. We offer a range of tailor-made solutions to our customers depending on your needs.
There are many options for authorizing access to the charging station(s) including:
- Access for everyone free of charge
- Access for a closed user group with authorization with customer cards, key fob, or mobile app.
You also have the option to choose set times when your store is closed or off-peak shopping times. Our team can support you select the best option for your use case and there is lots of flexibility to change this as your retail stores grow and adapt.
When using closed user groups, you have the option to bill monthly or provide pre-paid accounts.

Currently, our system offers
- Payment at the charge point via QR code:
Customers pay via a QR code that connects the eDriver to the payment provider. The EV driver then pays online using a credit card or Paypal.
- Payment via an app:
Using an app e.g., (white-label app by has·to·be gmbh branded in the retailer’s corporate identity), the eDriver selects the method of payment and pays monthly via credit card, bank payment (SEPA), etc. There is also an option to pay as an unregistered guest.
- NFC: Payment terminal e.g., Tap and Go at the charge point:
To accommodate this option an NFC terminal must be integrated by the hardware supplier. This is not an issue for our software. The charges paid via NFC terminal will appear in our back office as “Paid by NFC”.
