Daloop joins the EVRoaming Foundation as Full Contributor
By André Dias, CTO and Founder of Daloop
We're honoured to join the EVRoaming Foundation as a Full Contributor to improve and promote the adoption of the OCPI Protocol - Open Charge Point Interface — a true enabler of interoperability and roaming-by-design for all our CPO and EMSP customers around the world.
The objective of the EVRoaming Foundation is to facilitate roaming services for charging electric vehicles and provide transparent information to consumers about charging locations and prices, by use of the open and independent Open Charge Point Interface (OCPI) protocol.
Daloop has long supported OCPI as the reference protocol for open roaming among e-mobility partners, most notably with our experience of developing and implementing version 2.2 on the Portuguese MOBI.E Hub.
The ultimate goal of the protocol is to allow any EV driver to charge at any charging station. The EVRoaming Foundation wants to ensure that OCPI is a sustainable and strong protocol that remains accessible in the long-term while allowing for different business and regulatory models to be supported.
If we’re going to continue to upwardly scale the adoption of electric vehicles, it’s vital that we have a more innovative and open ecosystem, and we couldn’t be more excited to play an active and collaborative role in developing and deploying OCPI 3.0 in the near future.
