FAQ on White-label EV Charging Software

A white label EV charger is a technology that enables any company to provide its customers or users with a fully branded experience using existing tools. In the tech world, “white label” refers to products that can be easily rebranded or customized without the need for significant modifications.

YoCharge is an EV charging platform that is hardware-agnostic and fully supports the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP). It’s important to note that OCPP is different from OCPI (Open Charge Point Interface). OCPP is a widely used protocol for communication between charging stations and central systems, while OCPI is a separate protocol for enabling roaming between charging networks.

White label EV charging software empowers businesses to create a branded and efficient EV charging solution, enhancing their market presence and customer satisfaction while reducing development costs and implementation time. Some of the benefits include:

  • White label EV charging software enables businesses to create a branded and consistent user experience, aligning with their brand identity.
  • Businesses can save on development costs and time by using pre-existing tools, accelerating the launch of EV charging services.
  • White label software offers flexibility to scale and adapt the charging network according to business growth and needs.
  • A branded EV charging experience enhances customer loyalty and trust in the familiar brand.
  • Robust data analytics and reporting tools provide valuable insights for better decision-making and optimization of charging operations.
  • Integration capabilities allow seamless interaction with other systems, improving the efficiency of the charging process.
  • Ongoing support and maintenance from reputable white label providers ensure the software’s optimal performance and security.
  • Compliance with industry standards like OCPP and OCPI ensures compatibility and interoperability with diverse charging stations and networks.

White label software allows businesses to customize the software to their branding and specifications while providing all the necessary features to run an efficient and user-friendly charging network. The top features of White Label EV Charging Software include:

  • Custom Branding
  • Real-time Data Tracking
  • User Management
  • Billing and Payments
  • Branded Mobile Applications – IoS & Android
  • Network Monitoring
  • Client Support
  • Reporting and Analytics
  • Integration with other Systems
  • Interoperability

Yes, YoCharge offers a white label app as part of its EV charging software platform. This allows businesses to customize the user interface, design, and branding to create a seamless and branded charging experience for their customers.

FAQ on Electric Vehicles

Along with pure battery electric vehicles (BEVs) there are two more types of EVs. Plug-in Hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). Read More

Yes, electric vehicles are better than ICE vehicles as the former emits fewer vehicular pollutants. A CNG-powered or fuel-powered vehicle contributes to more particular emissions. Higher fuel and energy consumption harms the environment. On the contrary, EVs are more efficient as more than half of the energy is used in the propulsion of vehicles, and a very less amount is used in friction force.

EV charging isn’t as linear as fueling a fuel tank. Charging an electric vehicle depends on various factors such as vehicle type, charging equipment, power source, etc. Charging a larger battery pack may take more time than the smaller one. However, the power source is the main thing which clarifies the charging system.

EV charging can be classified in three levels

  • Level 1
    • Charging at home is very slow and takes hours.
  • Level 2
    • Charging at public charging stations takes a few minutes to an hour to charge an EV. The charging speed depends on the power and voltage an EVSE deal in. 
  • Level 3
    • It refuels electric vehicles at speed as charging is done through DC fast chargers. However, the fast-charging EVSE network is very less.

Rang anxiety is a driver’s fear regarding energy storage to cover road journey or reaching a charging station before car range signals refuelling. It is a major psychological barrier against users’ mass adoption of electric vehicles. Buying an EV against the mass adoption of e-mobility is a big deal in developing countries like India, where EV ecosystem is still in its initial stage. Range anxiety is obvious as India still needs to develop sufficient EV charging stations.

Like ICE vehicles, things can go wrong in the case of electric vehicles due to their electric malfunction. Although electric vehicles has fewer movable parts as compared to ICE, vehicles still have lithium-ion batteries which emit a lot of heat when used. The thermal management system plays a critical role. If gone wrong, it is prone to catch fire, and this can lead to lethal accidents.

As per the e-vahan portal (Ministry of Road Transport and Highways), as of December 2021, Uttar Pradesh with 2,58,105 electric vehicles is at first position in India. Check details

Indian States with Most EVs

As per the information received from Department of Revenue, at present the GST rate on electric vehicles is 5%.  The GST rates are prescribed based on the recommendations of the GST Council.  Electric vehicles are already at the lowest rate slab of 5%.

Under FAME-India Scheme, incentives are provided to buyers of electric vehicles subsidy in the form of an upfront reduction in the purchase price of electric vehicles
The incentive is linked to battery capacity i.e. Rs. 10,000/KWh for e-3W and e-4W with a cap 20% of the cost of vehicle.
Further, the incentive/ subsidies for e-2W has been increased to Rs. 15,000/KWh from Rs. 10,000/KWh with an increase in cap from 20% to 40% of the cost of vehicle w.e.f. 11th June, 2021. Details on Vehicles & Subsidy

As per the e-vahan portal (Ministry of Road Transport and Highways), at present there are about 8.77 lakhs active electric vehicles are on Indian roads as on 08 December 2021. Check Details

As of March 2022, as per the data available with Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), there are 1633 public EV charging stations, installed by various entities and are currently operational in India. reference

In January 2022, Ministry of Power, Government of India had issued “Consolidated Guidelines & Standards for Charging Infrastructure for Electric vehicles”. Detailed EV Charging Guidelines for 2022 are available here

Government of India has made charging a de-licensed activity meaning any individual/entity is free to set up public charging stations without the requirement of a license provided that, such stations meet the technical, safety as well as performance standards and protocols laid down  under the guidelines as well as norms/ standards/ specifications laid down by Ministry of Power, Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and Central Electricity Authority (CEA) from time to time.
