EV Point, Virta, Clever, Eneco BE and Siemens.


Release of OCPI 2.1

OCPI 2.1 is now available. The main improvements are:
- the support of remote commands
- the possibility to add facility information
- real-time checking of tokens
- the ability to give information about the type of energy.

In addition, some small changes have been made to improve usage and connection with central systems. 2.1 was developed with input from a group of small and large international charge point operators, service providers and major roaming hubs. The process has been facilitated by the Netherlands Knowledge Platform for Public Charging of Electric Vehicles (NKL). OCPI 2.1 can now be downloaded at OCPI 2.1

The next step - Test version

As a next step, a follow-up project is being defined to make an open source test version of OCPI, which can be used for both testing and implementation. New functionalities will also be added for charge profiles (for smart charging) and improved connection to central systems. As it is an open independent protocol, all input and participation is welcome.
