Full Text


In this paper we describe a system for extending existing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. The system described allows multiple vehicles to connect to a single public charge point socket and share its capacity. This system builds upon earlier work, with additional hardware for interfacing with public charge points and an additional, cryptocurrency based trading layer for more advanced functionality. We additionally develop a cooperative framework for sharing of charge points. A case study is provided to validate the efficacy of our approach.
