What is OCPP?
Imagine a world where every gas station only accepted their own form of payment.
Esso only accepted Visa, Shell only accepted Mastercard, and independent stations only accepted cash.
Luckily, this is not the world we live in, and consumers are free to roam between gas stations. Soon, electric vehicles drivers will be free to roam between charging station networks thanks to OCPP.
But this future is not guaranteed for EV drivers: it is essential that property managers and business owners promote the adoption of open charging networks. Otherwise, consumers and businesses alike will pay the cost of monopolistic refuelling infrastructure.
