EVRoam is a live database of New Zealand’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure. It collects real-time information from all safe and monitored public charge points around New Zealand, and freely distributes it.

This maximises the profile of the available charging infrastructure though dozens of existing apps and maps, and lets drivers know if a station is operational or otherwise offline so that they can plan journeys.

You can find an EV charging map of charging stations in New Zealand or find EV chargers on a particular route using the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency journey planner

Waka Kotahi and energy industry collaboration

EVRoam is a Waka Kotahi-led, world-first collaboration with our energy industry that accelerates New Zealand’s transition to zero carbon transport. 

New Zealand’s nationwide network of chargers are smart, plug-type standardised, and remote monitored by charging operators and energy suppliers for resilience.

The Waka Kotahi vision for our nationwide public charging infrastructure network is that it is safe, reliable and interoperable, meaning all drivers can use all charge points.

View the video to find out why the energy industry and our EVRoam partners decided to get involved:

We have collectively worked with the energy industry to develop guidelines for public charging infrastructure. EVRoam ensures these standards by freely distributing the information from smart charging infrastructure that meets these guidelines.

EVRoam also enables a clear picture of how and where New Zealand’s electric vehicle charging network is developing. It makes it easier to be a charging operator – even a one off installer, eg, a shopping mall, can be promoted through dozens of channels using EVRoam, as long as the chargers meet the guidelines.

This means we’re opening up the range of transport choices that people can make, which creates better choices for New Zealanders and contributes to a zero carbon transport for New Zealand.
