With the global energy depletion, environmental deterioration of the increasingly serious problems, the social awareness of energy conservation and emission reduction. By virtue of its advantages in the field of digital intelligence, third-party charging pile platform enterprises can accelerate the process of charging pile industry interconnection and promote the deep integration and coordinated development of transportation and energy fields. This paper studies the system composed of a third-party charging pile platform enterprise and a charging pile operator. When the third-party platform data enables the operator and the operator makes data operation input at the same time, the operator chooses to accept the conditions of data enabling, so as to achieve a win-win situation for both enterprises. In this paper, a data empowerment model is established for discussion. The research shows that charging pile operators will choose to accept data empowerment from the platform only when the cost increased by the cooperation between the two parties in data utilization is low. After receiving data empowerment from the third-party operation platform, the charging pile operator's own data application investment level is reduced, but the charging demand of users will be higher than that of the scenario without data empowerment.
