    Powering Progress: Efficient EV Charge Point Network Management Using Open Protocols

    The electric vehicle (EV) sector is rapidly transforming, and the need for flexible, reliable charging infrastructure is growing faster than ever, fuelled by demand from local legislation and a growing number of EV drivers. Beyond infrastructure cost, equipment quality, and smart charging features, it's crucial to manage all charging assets from one place while ensuring future compatibility with other systems. As we embrace the electric transition, the role of open protocols, like Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP), Open Charge Point Interface (OCPI), Open Smart Charging Protocol (OSCP) becomes indispensable for ensuring high level of services now and in the future.
