OCPI main uses for large-scale EV charging providers

OCPI enables a better EV charging experience through roaming, seamless data exchange, frictionless billing process, and smart charging management capabilities.

Seamless EV charging access

OCPI facilitates roaming with trusted EV charging networks, allowing network operators to expand their services through partnerships with other EV charging providers. This makes charging easier and more convenient for EV drivers as they can use a single account or app to access charging stations across different networks.

OCPI facilitates roaming

Efficient charging data exchange

Connect with other industry players and seamlessly exchange EV charging data. Information exchanged includes the sending of remote commands such as reservations, authorizing charging sessions, and billing, but also location information and charging session records.

Efficient charging data exchange

Streamlined transaction management

OCPI facilitates payment handling by providing a streamlined way for charge point management systems to share session information with external billing systems. Each transaction record (CDR) includes the session’s start time, duration, energy consumed, and cost.

OCPI facilitates payment handling

Compliance made easy with OCPI

CPOs must prioritize compliance with evolving regulations. This might include providing regular reports to authorities on EV charging data such as sessions, transactions, and EVSEs, which is made possible through OCPI. ㅤ

Regulatory compliance

Enhanced charging control

Entities like Smart Charging Service Providers, Aggregators, Energy Service Brokers, and eMSPs can send (Smart) Charging Profiles to a Location/EVSE via OCPI. This enables them to have more control over the charging process and support demand response programs.

OCPI FAQs

What are the benefits of using an OCPI-enabled EV charging management platform?

Using an OCPI-enabled platform offers several significant benefits:

– Facilitates real-time data exchange on charging station status, transactions, and pricing with various industry players.
– Enables EV drivers to easily access and use multiple charging networks with their existing accounts.
– Efficiently tracks billing details like price, session duration, and energy use thanks to OCPI’s two functional modules -servicing payment processing.
– Integrates energy management tools and CPMS functionalities for smart charging across multiple networks.
– Simplifies integration with operators, reducing costs and standardizing communication protocols.

What data is exchanged with OCPI?

OCPI facilitates the exchange of diverse data sets, including:
– The address and precise geo-location of charging stations
– Hardware specifications such as current type, voltage, etc of the charging stations.
– Charging station status information indicating if the charger is in use or available
– Credential information to authenticate the two backend software systems similar to passwords or tokens
– Remote command to start and stop a charging session
– Data on past charging sessions, such as Charging Detail Records (CDR)
– Detailed price information, including costs per kWh, price based on the time of the day etc.

What is the difference between OCPP and OCPI?

OCPP enables the communication between Charge Point Management Systems (CPMS) and chargers, while OCPI enables the communication between charging networks, service providers, and other industry players.

Where can I find the original OCPI documentation?

The official OCPI documentation is available on the EV Roaming Foundation website.

How do I implement the OCPI protocol?

There are two main approaches to implementing the OCPI protocol. You can opt to do it on your own by closely following the documentation, or you can rely on your EV charging management platform to manage all the complexities of implementation, including staying updated with the latest versions.
