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.

Themes: Data transparency for stakeholders and EV drivers; efficient OCPI architecture; research into new functionalities; and the car as a power storage unit and component of smart energy networks.

The project is financed by TKI Urban Energy.

About OCPI

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.
