Conditions of use of the electrify.brussels website
The electrify.brussels website aims to provide a regional map of electric car charging points in public and semi-public spaces.
The use of the information contained on this website is authorised and even encouraged as long as the website is mentioned as the source, and the conditions of use listed below are complied with.
In order to define the location of charging stations, a regional mapping is carried out annually. This mapping is the result of collaboration between independent experts (VUB), the Region (Brussels Environment and Brussels Mobility), the municipalities and Sibelga. In the future, this mapping will take into account the use of existing stations to identify the useful number and strategic locations for new stations. In addition to installing the charging points according to their usage data, the Region will soon have a basic network. For these reasons, there are no plans to install new charging points based on citizens' requests.
Brussels Environment ensures that the information on its website is as correct and up-to-date as possible. However, Brussels Environment cannot be held responsible for any errors therein.
Brussels Environment makes every effort to ensure maximum and continuous availability of this website. However, it is not immune to technical failure: Brussels Environment declines all responsibility in the event of unavailability of the website, whatever the duration of this unavailability.

- The unique ID that identifies the session in the CPO platform;
- Time stamp of the last update (or creation) of this session;
- Tariff information per connector/EVSE. This contains the following elements:
- Type: Time (charging time), energy (in kWh), parking time (non-charging time), flat (flat rate)
- Price per unit excluding VAT
- VAT (%):
- Step Size: minimum amount to be invoiced. This unit will be built with step size blocks
- Status of the EVSE in real time. The values can be: Available, blocked, charging, inoperative, out of order, planned, withdrawn, reserved, unknown.
Your data is kept for the following periods of time:
- Concerning the availability of charging stations: real time data flow
