Roaming - Charge point status - Access and price information – Billing
Open Charge Point Interface - OCPI supplies correct charge station information such as location, availability and pricing, manages bilateral roaming, and allows for real-time billing and mobile access to charge stations. For the electric mobility market, OCPI is the key to a more straightforward and accessible charging system based on objective, accurate information.
OCPI - the answer to many challenges

Access to charge points is improved by means of developing and offering independent interface communication software between the charge point and the charge vendor. OCPI can have an enormous impact on the speed at which publically available charging infrastructure develops. OCPI is an internationally supported independent interface that supports affordability and availability of charging infrastructure.
