As the electric vehicle (EV) market continues to expand, so does the need for charging stations. EVs don’t yet have a lengthy use range after being filled up to 100 percent. European entrepreneurs Jan Stannard and Jeremy Coulter are in the process of opening up a new company that will give EV owners a peer-to-peer network that will increase the number of place they can charge their car.

The new startup is called Chargie, and it adopts a similar approach to Uber and AirBnB. Those that have a charging station at home can upload their information on the service. Prices will be set by those owners. This allows potential customers to schedule a specific time with the charge point owners and they’ll be able to fuel up their car.
