What Is EVerest¶
EVerest is an open source modular framework for setting up a full stack environment for EV charging.
The modular software architecture fosters customizability and lets you configure your dedicated charging scenarios based on interchangeable modules. All this is glued together by MQTT.
EVerest will help to speed the adoption to e-mobility by utilizing all the open source advantages for the EV charging world. It will also enable new features for local energy management, PV-integration and many more.
You are currently on the main documentation page of EVerest.
There are quite a few other resources that you might want to check out:
The easiest and fastest way to connect to the steadily growing EVerest community is the EVerest mailing list .
You will get your questions answered and will also get regular information about our public meetups to which you are invited to join.
Weekly tech meetup¶
A weekly tech meetup for the whole community and interested people is currently held once a week.
Meet us here each Tuesday at 4pm in CET time-zone:
Join via Google Meet: https://meet.google.com/wnv-aadq-irt
Or dial: (DE) +49 40 8081616135 PIN: 964783404#

If you do not want to start talking about your requirements and projects in a big round, we can also give you the possibility to talk in a 1-on-1 meetup with a community guide.
Just book a 30-minute meetup here: https://calendly.com/manuel-ziegler-pionix/30min
In this meetup, we will try to understand your dedicated requirements and see where in the EVerest ecosystem you can contribute or get support. If there is a need for technically deeper exchange, we can plan to set your topic on the agenda of the weekly tech meetup.
