About Charge Your Car

Charge Your Car is a network of EV charge points all over the UK.  This includes Energise, GMEV, Source West and ChargePlace Scotland.

Charge Your Car is what is called a 'back office provider'; we don't own, install or maintain the charge points on the network, but provide access methods for EV drivers and gather the charging data for charge point owners.  We pass on fault reports made to us, to the owner or their maintenance provider and keep the network map up to date.

For EV Drivers...
For EV drivers, CYC makes it simpler and more convenient to travel across the UK, and within a few years, to always be within range of a CYC charge point. A single RFID card (the CYC Access Card) provides access to all charge points on the Charge Your Car network, whilst the CYC app lets EV drivers find and use charge points. To use the network, EV drivers simply register a debit/credit card, which connects to their CYC Access Card and app. The CYC telephone helpcentre provides support and advice.

For Charge Point Owners...
CYC operates by providing a single national charge point management system to which charge point owners can connect charge points, making the posts visible to all EV drivers via the CYC live status map.  CYC enables charge point owners to set the tariff for each charge point, collect payment for usage, and provides alerts in the event of a fault.
