A group of Finnish energy providers have joined together to establish a new shared electric vehicle charging station network which collects the various energy companies’ various charging stations into a single shared network. This network, named Virtapiste or Power point, which provides members with access to any of the charging stations listed in the network, regardless of whether a particular station belongs to their provider or not. 
The network is open to all parties operating EV charging points or stations, such as municipalities, cities, shopping malls, parking garages, or drive-in fast food restaurants. Parties joining the network can then serve as charging station operators and offer their customer’s EV charging services. The network’s owners will provide operators joining the network with equipment and comprehensive support services as well as a unified payment system. Operators meanwhile retain the right to set their own prices and market the services under their own brands.  
In addition to establishing and servicing this network, Liikennevirta and Nissan will collaborate in an effort to expand Finland’s rapid charging network in cities and along highways throughout the country.
