The Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) is a communication protocol used for interacting between electric vehicle (EV) charging stations (charge points) and central management systems (CMS). It is an open, standardized protocol that allows different charging infrastructure providers and network operators to communicate with each other seamlessly.
OCPP defines a set of messages and data formats that enable functionalities such as start/stop charging, retrieving charging session data, querying availability, and monitoring the status of home or business charge points. By using OCPP, EV charging networks can be interoperable, meaning users can charge their vehicles at different charging stations regardless of the infrastructure provider.
The protocol facilitates the integration of various charging station brands into a unified network and promotes the development of charging-related services and applications. It aims to simplify the management and operation of charging infrastructure while ensuring compatibility and scalability across different systems.
