ECISS is a future-focused project dedicated to furthering the development of roaming electric transport and connecting charging infrastructure with smart energy infrastructure. To this end, ECISS supports the development of the independent OCPI (Open Charge Point Interface) protocol. ECISS has a modular structure, with separate working groups focusing on separate component tasks while maintaining mutual contact.
This website publishes regular project updates, results, news about ECISS, and relevant recent developments.
OCPI stands for Open Charge Point Interface, the independent and open roaming protocol for electric transport. ECISS regards OCPI as the obvious choice of information protocol, for the following reasons:
- It can be used both between companies (peer-to-peer) and as a roaming hub.
- It is independent and market neutral; OCPI was developed on a not-for-profit basis by Dutch stakeholders, with the sole objective of facilitating the market for electric charging.
- The Dutch sector association eViolin has agreed with market actors that they will use OCPI as their standard protocol.
- Growing numbers of stakeholders throughout Europe and North America use OCPI.
ECISS working groups include representatives of the project partners Allego, Eneco, Greenflux, Jedlix and TNO. The coordinating organization for this project is the Netherlands Knowledge Platform for Public Charging Infrastructure (NKL). All of the partners contribute to bringing in expertise from the various branches of the electric transport sector.
Allego is committed to achieving an open, reliable and efficient charging infrastructure that best serves EV drivers.
Eneco eMobility provides smart charging points for home and the workplace, making sustainable smart charging accessible.
Charge point operator GreenFlux supplies management environments to other parties, and software to service providers.
Commercial service provider Jedlix harmonizes the energy demands of EV drivers with the needs of local and other energy markets.
TNO is a knowledge partner for hybrid energy systems, and a driving force in integration of knowledge in decision-making processes.
ECISS is a future-focused collaborative project between partners Allego, Eneco, Greenflux, Jedlix, TNO and NKL. Its objective is the continued development of EV roaming services and the harmonization of charging infrastructure and smart energy infrastructure.Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
