About the NCR
The National Chargepoint Registry (NCR) was established by the UK Government in 2011 to provide a public database of publicly-funded chargepoints across the UK in support of the Government’s objective to promote the use and sales of Ultra Low Emission vehicles (ULEVs) in the UK.
As its name suggests, the NCR is a registry of UK chargepoints, rather than a mapping service. However, one of the objectives of the NCR is to provide data to third parties, some of whom will present the database in a map format.
Third party applications
Mapping tools / apps based on NCR data include: ecarNI which shows points in N. Ireland; Greener Scotland which shows Scottish EV chargers; PlugSurfing, an app which allows covers the EU; Open Charge Map, which shows charge points in the UK and globally; Mitsubishi Motors which allows UK users to find Mitsubishi compatible points; The New Motion, that provides apps with search, filters and status notifications; MyRouteMonkey with battery aware route planning; and Zap-Map which displays chargepoint locations with user search functionality.
The NCR database containing key information regarding the UK’s public chargepoint network is freely available to end users in XML, CSV, and JSON formats. An API is also available for developers to automatically import the dataset for third party applications.
