The Public EV Charger Dashboard is one of the tools government and organisations can use to help plan and build out the public charging network. It's also used to report on our progress. It is updated quarterly.

To locate chargers for powering your EV, we recommend the EV Roam website(external link) or Plugshare app(external link).

About the EV Charging Dashboard

The EV Charging Dashboard combines data drawn from EV Roam with internal data including the pipeline of EECA co-funded projects (approved but not yet installed). 

Ongoing work includes the use of spatial tools to identify where there are others EV Chargers are  sited that are not registered with EV Roam.

The purpose of the Dashboard is to provide a range of metrics for a broad audience including:  

The dashboard will be updated quarterly, on 31 March, 30 June, 30 Sept and 31 December although in time the dashboard should become a live resource using real time data feeds.

Definitions and Caveats

EV Charger Insights tab

  • EV Charger – a device separate to an electric vehicle that has a mains electricity input (230V or 400V, 50Hz) and provides either a DC or AC electrical output to charge an electric vehicle.
  • Charging Point – an individual connector on a charger, enabling the charger to charge one or more cars simultaneously.
  • Site – a location where one or more chargers are located.
  • Power rating categories used are the classifications adapted in the New Zealand standards for commercial electric vehicle (EV) charging document - SNZ PAS 6010:2023 :: Standards New Zealand. These standards enable consistent reporting to the International Energy Agency (IEA) for reporting comparison to other countries.

EV Charging Metrics tab

This tab displays some base metrics of the current state of EV Charging in New Zealand. These metrics can be viewed at regional and Territorial Authority (local council) levels.

The metrics can also be displayed by clicking:

  • EV Charger – the number is same as the insight tab
  • EVs – are Battery Electric vehicles. This data excludes Plug in Hybrid Electric vehicles (PHEV’s). This data is sourced from NZTA and is geocoded to either the region and district.
  • EV Penetration - is the percentage (%) of the EV in the overall vehicle fleet.
  • EVs per 1k Capita – is the number of EVs per 1,000 of population in either regions or districts
  • EVs per charger. This metric calculates the EVs per charger based on the geocoded vehicle registration address. This information is provided for both regional and Territorial Authority areas.

Note: the data for government and company owned vehicles is geocoded to the head office or national addresses which may be different from where vehicles are used.

Viewing Data

The detailed data can be viewed by clicking on the View Data tab on the right-hand side of the. This data can be sorted using the filter at the column heading of each column.

CPOs are responsible for ensuring that the data is updated and correct.

EECA Co-funded Pipeline tab

This dashboard displays the approximate Go Live date of EECA co-funded projects. The “Go Live” dates are approximate being dependant on a range of factors including timing for obtaining resource consent or connection/upgrade of power to the EV Charging site by the Electric Distribution Business (EDB). This data can be filtered by applicant, power rating region or date.

Note: The Go Live dates may vary in the quarterly updates due to constraints with commissioning
