The 4 tariff elements

Understanding the components that make up an EV charging tariff will help you tailor them to align with your business goals and meet your customers’ needs.

1. Choose the right tariff 

Different types of tariffs are available to customize your offering according to your customer’s needs and maximize profits through targeted pricing.

The range of tariff types includes:

  • FREE CHARGING - Free tariffs offer unlimited charging without any duration or consumed energy limitations.
  • FLAT RATE - Flat rate tariffs charge a fixed price per session, regardless of how long the charging session lasts or how much energy is consumed.
  • DURATION AND ENERGY - This tariff combines pricing based on the session duration and the amount of energy consumed.
  • DURATION AND ENERGY TIME OF DAY- These tariffs offer different pricing during different times of day, such as night and day tariffs.
  • CHARGING NOT ALLOWED - This tariff is applied when you don’t want EV drivers to charge at specific EVSEs or during certain hours of the day. Restricting charging can help manage the load on the grid during peak demand and ensure sufficient power is available. It also comes in handy if you need to perform maintenance or upgrade your EV charging infrastructure.
  • ENERGY TOD - Charge customers based on the consumed energy at different times of the day, which have varying electricity rates. You can set a fixed rate for the electric usage, which can be the same every day or different on different days of the week. With special pricing tariffs, you can offer unique pricing options for specific days, periods, or events. The granularity of the electricity rate can also be set, with options ranging from 15-minute to 1-hour intervals.

2. Empower Your EV Charging Tariffs

Tailored for Every CustomerIn the realm of Electric Vehicle Charging Management, customization is the name of the game. Your EV charging tariffs can be finely tuned to cater to the specific needs of your diverse customer base.

Start with your registered users—those who already have an account with you. But don't stop there. Think bigger, because your tariffs can extend to various user groups, amplifying your reach and impact. Imagine your tariffs seamlessly applying to users of your roaming partners, transforming your offerings into a universal solution. Or consider your valued B2B clients, for whom tailored tariffs can be a game-changer.

But that's not all. In this world of endless possibilities, tariffs can also accommodate ad-hoc users, like tourists and visitors, who seek to recharge their EVs without the hassle of prior registration. You can even integrate tariffs into subscription plans for a streamlined experience.

The magic truly happens when your tariffs align with the location-specific needs of your charging stations. Apply them to select EVSEs, depending on their location and the amenities they offer, providing a personalized touch that leaves your customers delighted.

With a multitude of options at your fingertips, it's imperative to personalize and fine-tune your EV charging tariffs, ensuring they resonate with each customer segment. This level of customization isn't just about meeting expectations—it's about exceeding them, all while boosting your bottom line."Is this conversation helpful so far?

3. Unlocking the Power of Multi-Parameter Tariffs

Crafting the perfect Electric Vehicle charging tariff is akin to composing a symphony. Each element harmonizes to create a seamless experience.

Let's explore the components that constitute a multi-parameter tariff, bringing precision and customization to your charging rate plan.

  • Connection Fee: This fixed fee marks the beginning of every charging session. To ensure it applies sensibly, operators can set criteria, like a minimum session duration or energy requirement. It ensures that very short or low-energy sessions aren't subject to this fee.
  • Price per kWh (Energy Fee): Dive deeper into energy pricing by splitting it into slots based on consumption. Set a fixed price per kW and, if applicable, a flat fee for each slot. Additionally, introduce a duration fee based on the session length, which can be split into time slots with fixed pricing per billable unit and a flat fee. Operators can even define the duration fee time period, say, every 15 minutes.
  • Idle Fees: Network operators can determine idle fees for moments when the EV is not actively charging during the session. Specify a fee per minute for the idle period and establish a grace period (in minutes) before the idle fee kicks in. This grace period gives EV drivers a window to move their vehicles before incurring the idle fee.
  • Minimum Session Price: Guarantee a minimum level of revenue by setting a minimum price per session. This ensures that each session contributes meaningfully to your earnings.
  • Pre-Authorization: For smoother payment processes, consider pre-authorizing a specific amount on the user's payment card at the start of the session. You can configure the system to stop the session if the pre-authorization amount falls below a set value, ensuring the EV driver has sufficient funds to cover the session's cost.

In the world of EV charging tariffs, customization and precision are your greatest allies. Crafting a tariff plan tailored to your unique needs will set you apart and maximize your revenue potential.

4. Determine when tariffs are applied

Charge point operators can use multiple tools and features to control when and how tariffs are applied. From start and end dates for specific tariffs to special pricing for certain days of the week or month, operators can employ different strategies to incentivize charging behaviors, balance demand during peak periods and offer users more cost-effective and flexible pricing options.

Elevating Tariff Management for Precision Targeting

For Electric Vehicle charging station operators, the art of grouping tariffs opens the door to advanced management and pinpoint targeting. Arranging tariffs in a strategic hierarchy can transform your EV charging offerings.

  1. Priority-Based Arrangement: By sequencing tariffs in order of importance or customer relevance, you ensure that the most enticing tariffs take center stage. This not only elevates customer satisfaction but also cultivates loyalty. When a user doesn't qualify for a preferred tariff, operators can seamlessly apply the next most fitting option in the hierarchy.
  2. Tailored Experiences: Embrace tariff grouping to craft personalized and efficient charging experiences that zero in on specific partners or EVSEs. This empowers you to design pricing structures that align perfectly with partner agreements or site-specific requirements.

In the world of EV charging, precision and customization are your secret weapons. Strategically grouping tariffs can make your offerings not only customer-centric but also operationally efficient, setting you on a path to charging excellence.
