OASIS Advances Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Data Standard, OCPP; ABB, ActewAGL, Chargerlink, Chargestorm, Ensto Chago, Gridscape, Open Charge Alliance, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Southern California Edison, and others take the lead to establish equal-access, secure infrastructure for EV charging. 19 Oct 2016

The first meeting of the OASIS OCPP Technical Committee was held via teleconference on 07 September 2016. Lonneke Driessen (Open Charge Alliance) and Rish Ghatikar (Greenlots) were elected as Co-Chairs. Gershon Janssen (Individual) was elected Secretary.


The OASIS OCPP Technical Committee will define uniform, application-level, data exchange methods and communications based upon an enhanced version of the OCPP Protocol. This standard will make it it possible to connect any OCPP Central System (including intermediate or virtual emulators) with any electric vehicle (EV) charging station (“charge point” or “EVSE”), including intermediate or other emulators, regardless of vendor, to assure the uniform, application-level interoperable exchange of EVSE and EV data and control information. OCPP standardization will promote innovation and benefit the entire range of stakeholders in the electric vehicle ecosystem.

The OCPP TC will produce specifications that define the functional standards needed for data interoperation between a charge point and central system providers and Integrators. The interoperation includes but is not limited to authorizations, identification, metering, management, resource and consumption availability and needs. The scope is limited to communication between Central System Providers/Integrators and charge points and related necessary information definition.
