Two interoperable national charging networks: a first for France.
Details: you can use just one pass to charge your vehicle on the Corri-Door rapid charging network and the CNR charging network in the Rhone Valley.
To start with, you need to be signed up with one of the mobility operators, either IZIVIA or CNR. You can then charge up your electric vehicle on both charging networks with your usual pass, and your usual operator will charge you for it. For electric car drivers, this means greater simplicity: they use the same pass and the operators work with each other to pass on the data needed for billing.
Corri-Door and CNR Energie have managed to become interoperable thanks to the French roaming platform GIREVE. While charging, access permissions and charging data are passed on directly to GIREVE, who then analyse it and send it on to the operator.
What do the 2 networks cover?
Corri-Door is a network of 200 rapid charging points which mean you can do a full charge in 20 to 30 minutes. Its charging points are available every 80km along equipped motorway routes. Electric car drivers can now dare to travel further and venture away from urban and rural areas. The outcome of a project led by EDF with IZIVIA, Renault, Nissan, BMW and Volkswagen, the Corri-Door network is 100% powered by renewable energy. Run by IZIVIA, it has enjoyed national status since January 2016.
CNR runs an electric corridor made up of 50 charging points, from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean. Each charging station has 2 rapid charging points, approximately 30km apart. They can be found on the secondary road network, near town centres, industrial areas and waypoints from one bank of the Rhone to the other. Committed to making sure that electric mobility is truly sustainable, CNR powers its charging stations with 100% renewable energy, which it produces at the same time. This network has been recognised as national since April 2015.
