ADVENIR Programme

Hubject and
ADVENIR

As from spring 2022, Charging Point Operators located and serving the French market who wish to benefit from the ADVENIR program subsidies can choose Hubject as their eRoaming Service Provider.

The ADVENIR program, led by Avere-France, finances the deployment of recharging infrastructure in France. Since 2016, it has helped to finance nearly 36,000 private and public charging points. It also has a training component to raise awareness of electric mobility among individuals, real estate professionals and local players.

Introduction to Hubject eRoaming

Interoperability allows an EV driver or subscriber to access the charging service of an eMobility Service Provider (EMP). eRoaming offers the possibility of recharging while travelling across the entire network of Charging Point Operators (CPOs), with all transactions invoiced only once, as part of the subscription signed up with the eMobility Service Provider. An interoperable charging point guarantees non-discriminatory conditions of access and payment for any subscriber of a mobility operator.

Introduction to Data Collection

One of the objectives of the ADVENIR program is to prove that the growth of the electric vehicle market is effectively contributing to the positive energy transition. Participants of the program must therefore measure the real impact of electric vehicle charging on carbon emissions related to electricity production and the electricity distribution network. For this purpose, the ADVENIR program systematically collects charging data for infrastructures from companies participating in this program.

Process of obtaining the Advenir subsidy

01

To benefit from an ADVENIR subsidy, the future beneficiary must contact an installation company whose offer is certified by the ADVENIR program. To consult the list of labelled offers, click here.

02

Once the installation company has been chosen, the future beneficiary makes his "Subsidy Request" on the ADVENIR Platform or delegates this task to his installation partner: click here to create an account on the platform. For information, the installer's quote is requested when applying for a subsidy.

03

Once the premium application has been validated by the ADVENIR program, the beneficiary proceeds to the "Signature of the bonus offer" online on the ADVENIR Platform. The subsidy is reserved for the beneficiary for 6 months, to proceed with the installation.

04

Once the installation is complete, the beneficiary proceeds to the "Sending of supporting documents" or delegates this task to his installation partner: certificate of completion of work co-signed with the installation partner, invoice, and photo before/after, etc. For certain types of installations described in this email, the ADVENIR program verifies additional requirements such as reporting consumption data and the interoperability of installed charging stations.

05

Once these documents have been submitted and validated by the ADVENIR program, the subsidy is paid to the beneficiary

Hubject Support

The ADVENIR program chose Hubject to enable beneficiaries to meet two requirements: the reporting of consumption data and the interoperability of recharging points. Please fill out the form below that will guide you through the steps to obtain your interoperability or data collection certificate via Hubject.
ADVENIR Application form
Whether for the interoperability certificate or for data reporting, you will find throughout this journey all the information and documents necessary to carry out your steps.  

Every process for requesting an interoperability certificate or data collection must begin with the creation of an ADVENIR application file.

ADVENIR FAQ

Can Hubject assist me in advancing my Happens request?

No, Hubject cannot help you with requirements other than the two for which we intervene:

  • The reporting of consumption data
  • Charging interoperability
Who is Hubject?

Hubject is a German company headquartered in Berlin.  Hubject was created in 2012 and now has 8 major European stakeholders from the energy and electromobility ecosystems: BMW Group, Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, EnBW, Enel X, E.ON, Siemens and the Volkswagen Group.

For more information, consult: about us

In which language is Hubject accompanied?

Hubject has offices around the world, with French representatives based in Paris and Angers in Maine-et-Loire. All technical support and customer service are carried out in French (or English if needed for non-French companies).

I am a charging station installer and do not want to work as a charging or mobility operator, can I still work directly with Hubject?

No, Hubject only works with charging operators (CPO intercharge)  or mobility operators (EMP intercharge). Please contact one of our partners (Partners page) or contact us at the following address: advenir@Hubject.com

How much does it cost to use Hubject for reporting consumption data or for charging interoperability?

For charging operators and future beneficiaries of ADVENIR premiums, integration into the Hubject platform is free (CPO intercharge). Roaming services are then charged €99 per month. The collection of consumption data is free.

How long does the process take to receive my Hubject interoperability certificate?

If you are using a CPO monitoring system already connected to Hubject, allow 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the amount of charging points to be integrated. The process will be all the faster if your infrastructure descriptive data is correct and in the right format.

If you want to technically connect directly to Hubject, the process will be longer and will depend on the time needed to complete the project of technical connection and integration of your infrastructures to the platform.

Can I work with only one mobility operator via the marketplace and receive my interoperability certificate?

No. To be interoperable, you will need to be non-discriminatory on the platform. It will therefore be necessary to publish a "Public" type offer (Offer-to-All, visible to all our mobility operators).

Which mobility operators will be able to contract with me on the platform?

You can access the list of our mobility operator partners, on our partners page by clicking here or by  contacting us at the following address: advenir@Hubject.com

Will my terminals be visible in maps and navigation systems?

Yes, your terminals will be visible in the applications of mobility operators as well as in the vehicle navigation systems.

What will be my day-to-day workload to administer roaming management at the kiosks I operate?

You will have 3 main topics to deal with:

  • "Contractual" topics with mobility operators on the platform (roaming contracts are all digitized and you have a dedicated dashboard that lists your different contracts).
  • "Operational" topics: to respond to possible requests from mobility operators, EV drivers or Hubject
  • "Financial" topics: to charge mobility operators for whom users have recently come to recharge on my network

For more information on Hubject support for each of these services, please visit our dedicated page.

Can Hubject help me administer roaming management?

Yes, Hubject offers its CPO interchage customers free of charge INVOICE MANAGEMENT support.
Thanks to this option, you can fully delegate the preparation of your invoices to Hubject.
To learn more, visit the INVOICE MANAGEMENT intercharge page by clicking here.

What CPO rate should be offered on the Hubject marketplace for mobility operators?

You will be free to determine your CPO roaming rate on the platform. This is the B2B price that you will ask mobility operators when their customers come to recharge at your terminals. If you wish, you can offer free admission at certain charging points.

During your technical integration on the Hubject platform, our operational experts will guide you on the best practices to adopt for CPO rates.  The CPO rate charged for roaming on the platform is of the order of 30% cheaper than the rate excluding VAT charged at the terminal in fee-for-service.

I don't have an ID in FR*XXX format, what should I do?

You can make your request for an identifier directly to the French organization in charge of attribution: AFIREV via the following page: https://www.afirev.fr/en/request-for-identifier/

Hubject cannot assist you in applying for an identifier from AFIREV or another foreign body.

Can I use my eMI3 ID with a foreign prefix (e.g. NL*XXX or DE*XXX) for both requirements?

Yes, if you obtained your ID abroad, for example from eViolin or BDEW, you can still use Hubject for both of the requirements for which we operate.

Can Hubject assist me in declaring charging points on the data.gouv repository?

No, this must be done separately and Hubject cannot help you with this part because we do not administer this platform.

Why do we have to report consumption data?

One of the objectives of the ADVENIR programme is to prove that the growth of the electric vehicle market is effectively contributing to the energy transition. The programme must therefore measure the real impact of electric vehicle charging on carbon emissions related to electricity production and on the electricity distribution network. It is for this purpose that the ADVENIR program systematically collects load data for the infrastructures allowing it, whether they are controlled or not.

As soon as the terminal integrates a teleoperation system, the transmission of energy consumption data is mandatory.

What consumption data must be communicated to the ADVENIR program?

For all charging sessions that the charging station provides, and regardless of the means used by the driver to access the service (with a badge, a smartphone application, a credit card, the Plug &Charge, etc.), the minimum data to be sent are

(a) the total energy delivered during charging (Wh);

(b) the start and end date/time of the refills.

Any other data available to the operator must also be sent to the ADVENIR program. The data collected is anonymized, it is considered confidential and will be completely deleted at the end of the program.

How long do I have to report consumption data to the ADVENIR program?

The consumption data will have to be reported over the entire life of the terminal.

How do I report consumption data to the ADVENIR program?

The ADVENIR program allows recipients to use one of the following solutions:

  • via the collection of EcoCO2 web service data
  • via the hubject platform's web service

Before contacting Hubject, make sure that:

  1. your installation requires the reporting of consumption data to the ADVENIR program (see previous chapter)
  2. the tele-operation/supervision system used for your charging stations uses the hubject platform's web service for reporting consumption data to the ADVENIR program. The remote operation/supervision systems that have chosen the Hubject web service are accessible in this list or on request to advenir@hubject.com
How to prove to ADVENIR that the reporting of consumption data is effective via Hubject?

The verification of the requirement to raise consumption is done automatically. No proof is to be provided on the ADVENIR Platform.

Can I obtain an interoperability certificate for ADVENIR other than via the Hubject platform?

Yes, since spring 2022 to obtain ADVENIR premiums that require interoperability, the use of one of the program's partner platforms is mandatory.  The list of partner platforms is available on the  ADVENIR program website. On the other hand, connections to other non-program or peer-to-peer platforms do not meet this requirement.
