Step 1

Customer Segment

The private charging market has many interesting sub-segments from which to choose from. Customers have successfully focused their business on:

  • Multi-dwelling apartment charging
  • Office charging
  • Taxi fleet charging
  • Delivery vehicle charging
  • Bus charging

Each segment has their own quirks and requirements and the selection affects many aspects of business model and operations choices.

Step 2

Business Model

One would think private charging business model is pretty simple, but we urge you to consider a few things:

  • Are you an operator or do you perform installations and maintenance too? Hardware sales and installation work can be a good income source, especially at first
  • Do you make your recurring money from service fees or by adding a margin on power?
  • Do you own the infrastructure or do you need to compensate another party for power?

eMabler's invoicing solutions can help you with any of these models.

Step 3

User Experience

Do you want to offer an app to your private charging users? Or perhaps just monthly invoicing?

If you compensate the building owner for power, who manages the prices and how? Do you offer self service tools?

eMabler's Charge Point Management System can also be used to provide site managers and building owners with self-service tools to manage their energy pricing and reduce your customer service load.

Step 4

Visitor Payments

Some private charging sites are not fully private, in offices, you might have the occasional visitor. Subcontractors might visit fleet charging depots for a top-up. It would be nice to have the one using the power also pay for it.

eMabler Express is visitor ad-hoc payment solution that can be deployed quickly with minimal up-front and recurring costs.
