Coulomb Technologies has expanded the ChargePoint network with advanced networking features designed for the European market.

The enhanced ChargePoint network supports the MIFARE-based transportation card that facilitates interoperability amongst different European energy supplier charging networks, making driver roaming possible.

Coulomb’s ChargePoint network comprises stations installed throughout Europe including Ireland, England and the Netherlands, with approximately 100 stations currently in use in the City of Amsterdam.

The Chargepoint network enables CT2500 charging station owners, including energy suppliers and municipal governments, to offer drivers with faster charging, flexible billing, email and text message alerts, 24/7 driver assistance and compatibility with all new electric vehicles.

Coulomb has completed compatibility testing with the Nissan LEAF at the Nissan Technical Center in England.

The Nissan LEAF is expected to be on the streets of Portugal, Ireland, UK and The Netherlands in early 2011 and will be able to charge at any ChargePoint charging station in Europe, the company said.

The company also said its ChargePoint network is open to all drivers of plug-in vehicles and all manufacturers of plug-in vehicle charging stations.
