Standardization of chargers and the introduction of new protocols for interoperability are the next big steps supported by the authorities, EV foundations, and industry. E-mobility market players face challenges when it comes to enabling smart charging, implementing a contactless experience, and providing a secure and accessible charging infrastructure. To render an open network, beneficial for all the market players, an introduction to open standards will be crucial.
At Solidstudio we know that time is everything. This is why we gathered what we know, shared the best insights and practices to develop ready-to-integrate components. These tested modules facilitate the standard implementation and update:
The component is an OCPP server being able to connect to the charge point using OCPP (2.0.1) protocol. It is a proxy for the whole communication between the charge point and the CPO backend system.
The component is an OCPP 2.0.1 based software Charge Point for e2e testing and monitoring of the CPO platform.
An application protocol for communication between charging stations and a central management system. It is available for free, international, open-source, vendor-independent standard.
Developed by Hubject, is an implemented communication standard between eMSP and CPO systems via the Hubject platform.
Designed for information exchange about charge points between CPOs and eMSPs to facilitate scalable and automated EV roaming.
An international standard for bi-directional digital communications between electric vehicles and the charging station.
Late changes to the data model are time-consuming. MVP or initial versions of the software cover every basis needed. When the system does not require a sophisticated model of the charging infrastructure it may be enough to shape the whole charge point as a flat structure. Upon this simple model, more features can be built, till your range grows, and a need to open the platform using some open standard comes up.
This action requires developing mapping between the internal model and the one introduced by the standard. If the existing model does not support concepts (e.g. Location and Evse) and does not follow general standards, when it comes to the format of IDs, it may require plenty of work to perform such mapping.
While working for one of our partners, mapping their existing codebase to make it available for open standards, took several months for a team of developers. In fact, if the model would match the standard from the beginning, the integration would require just a simple action, and full integration would be possible within a few weeks.
The time for full integration can be significantly reduced (from a few months to a few weeks) thanks to the implementation of ready-made code linking the standard and the platform.
Some aspects of system architecture are specific to the domain.
- deciding which processes are synchronous and which are asynchronous
- the decision whether or not some data must be immutable
General concepts, but taking into account these limitations from the very beginning helps to avoid making wrong decisions when designing and developing the e-mobility platform.
OCPI is defined as an open standard. In theory, everyone ought to introduce this standard in the same way.
OCPI is not always the norm. Hub Gireve, for example, extends this standard. Some components exist and are not part of the OCPI documentation. Some OCPI partners require a certain sequence of specific actions that are actually not part of the standard. It is worth knowing this upfront when designing the CPO/eMSP end system.
Having the domain knowledge within the development team allows participating in specific direct business conversations about e-mobility. We are familiar with general concepts, e-mobility background (CPO, eMSP/EMP, EVSE, eMI3 ID, OCPI, OICP, OCPP), different market approaches (public/private/fleet charge points), so we can immediately proceed directly with the specific business issues that are to be solved, rather than technical details (we already know them).
We have learned that getting to know a specific area takes time, but once explored, it allows us to catch common parts. The observations turned into concrete solutions are an improvement for the future.
