This paper addresses some of the issues surrounding the charging of electric vehicles (EVs) with a particular focus on charge points. We discuss the design and implementation of a charge point adapter. The key feature of the adapter is that it provides privately owned charge points with the opportunity to be rented to members of the public, resulting in additional charging opportunities for EVs. We present a number of use cases whereby the adapter is used to alleviate the demand for EV charging in an area that experiences a shortage of charge points, but where private, unused charge points are available.
