You need to build a vehicle simulator, that will provide the required signals to turn on a a charge point, and that has the appropriate connectors. I built one for testing charge points, but it would do the job of providing a controlled 13 A outlet to charge the G-Wiz, using the charge lead that comes with the car:

148398


148399


You could leave out the test points and the push buttons for simulating faults. You could also leave out the "plugged in" switch and just short it, so there's only a "charge request" switch to turn power on.

The GWiz I recall has a 3pin 13A plug, so you need one of these
Type2 to 3pin adapter

Is it worth it? you will still have to pay for the electricity on most providers.
If you can find a 3pin socket on your travels so much the better.
