e-Mobility Network Managing Entity (EGME)

The Electric Mobility Network Managing Entity (EGME), known in Portugal as "Entidade Gestora da Rede de Mobilidade Elétrica," is a state-owned enterprise responsible for managing and overseeing the operations of the electric mobility network. This includes the management of energy and financial flows associated with electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.

Established in 2015, EGME plays a crucial role in the transition to electric mobility in Portugal. It serves as a public instrument aimed at promoting sustainable mobility and decarbonisation. EGME’s responsibilities encompass a wide range of activities, such as ensuring the seamless operation of charging stations, handling data on energy consumption, and managing financial transactions related to EV charging. 

EGME’s functions include informing energy suppliers about the volume of energy delivered by charging operators, receiving data from charging station operators about each charging event, and evaluating network operations to optimise the placement of charging stations. This centralised management helps maintain a cohesive and efficient network, facilitating the integration of various stakeholders, including charging point operators (CPOs), electric mobility service providers (EMSPs), and electric vehicle users. 

One of EGME’s primary goals is to support the objectives outlined in Portugal’s Climate Agreement, which includes a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. By promoting the widespread adoption of electric vehicles and ensuring a robust and reliable charging infrastructure, EGME contributes significantly to these environmental targets. 

Furthermore, EGME is committed to market orientation, innovation, and ethical transparency. It operates within a regulatory framework that governs relationships between different players in the electric mobility sector, ensuring that all operations are conducted with the highest standards of integrity and efficiency. Through these efforts, EGME aims to facilitate the growth and development of electric mobility, making it a sustainable and practical solution for the future.
