For EV drivers, CYC makes it simpler and more convenient to travel across the UK. 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 with a direct debit to their bank account, which connects to their CYC Access Card and app. The CYC telephone help centre provides support and advice.

Charge Point Hosts

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.

How it works

Charge Point Manufacturers

To join the Charge Your Car network and get instant access to a growing number of plug-in electric vehicle drivers throughout the UK, you will need a charge point that is CYC Approved as OCPP compliant.

OCPP is an open protocol between charging stations and a central charge point management system (CPMS). It allows any compliant charging station from any charge point manufacturer to connect to the network and for this reason has been chosen by Charge Your Car to create the UK's first 'open' network, accessible by all charge point owners, all network operators, and all drivers of plug-in electric vehicles.
