RICARICABILE ("Rechargeable" in English): thought for an occasional or tourist use of the public charging infrastructures. The purchase of a prepaid credit (40€, 75€, 140€ + VAT) guarantees to the Client the possibility to recharge within 12 months up to 100, 200 or 400 kWh. When the prepaid credit expires, the Client can recharge via PayPal on the website mobility.dufercoenegia.com. At the end of the 12 months the Client can recharge a new amount (maintaining valid also the previous credit unconsummated), maintain the active credit for additional 12 months (to the cost of 6€ + VAT for connected administrative burdens) or return the Card by ordinary mail to Duferco Energia spa, via Paolo Imperiale 4 5°piano c/o Mobility, 16126 Genoa.

FLAT: thought for a frequent use of the public charging infrastructures. As a monthly subscription for 24 months, it guarantees to the Client unlimited recharges up to 300 kWh / month (which correspond to around 1.800 km / month for many cars) at the cost of 15 € + VAT for the first 6 months and 25€ + VAT for the following 18 months. At the overcoming of the monthly threshold, a surcharge of 25€ / month can be debited to the Client (which will match to new 300 kWh). With effect from the 25th month the economic conditions may be updated, otherwise they will be extended.
At the end of the contract, if the Client do not return the Card, the Supplier will debit the cost of the connected administrative services to the deactivation of the contract equal to 15€ + VAT.

Green charging stations are available, while orange ones are partially occupied and red charging stations are momentarily unavailable. There are also gray charging stations, which are in maintenance. Light blue color indicates the Strutture Amiche ("Friendly Structures"). Tesla's Supercharger and the charging stations that offer free access have a dedicated icon.
On the website mobility.dufercoenergia.com you can enter the destination address in the box (clicking then Go) dedicated to the localization of the nearest charging stations in the area of interest.
Starting from a charging station and entering the original address (the current position, if the setting is active, is the 'start' of default) the route will be displayed via Google Maps.
For a correct recharge, it is necessary to observe the following procedure:
1. Insert the cable on the car side;
2. Pass the Duferco Energia Card on the sensor of the charging station;
3. Received the signal from the charging station, insert the cable into the charging station plug;
4. The recharge is starting;
5. To stop the recharge: pass the Card on the sensor, extract the cable on the charging station side and then on the car side.
For charging infrastructures which have different start / stop modalities, charging instructions are available on the same infrastructure.
Recharge’s time depends on the charging power of the infrastructure, on the battery’s capacity and on the capacity of the vehicle’s battery charger. The most common charging infrastructures in AC allow recharges to 3 kW (through both Type 2 and Type 3A sockets) and up to 22 kW just through Type 2 sockets. More than 80% of a 20 kW battery - an 'empty' battery - recharges in one hour through 22 kW. Through 3 kW a battery needs from 6 to 8 hours to get the same result. In direct current (DC), 80% of the recharge is achieved in less than 30 minutes.
For battery capacity, battery charger features (sometimes optional on the same vehicle model) please refer to the producer's information.
No, at the moment in Italy it is not possible to book a recharge on public infrastructures.
