Open interfaces as a basis for driving e-mobility forward
To ensure seamless operation of the shared systems, the two companies have opted for open, proven standards and interfaces. This includes the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) for forwarding billing-relevant data from ChargePilot to the reev dashboard. OCPP has been specifically developed to meet the needs of semi-public charging, which is used in company settings, the residential sector, parking environments and the hospitality industry. It makes it possible, for example, to manage multiple individual user groups and define flexible tariffs accordingly. Billing and invoicing are fully automated, all processes run in the background. With the reev app for drivers, drivers benefit from complete transparency regarding previous and current charging processes, as well as their bills and transactions. ChargePilot, in turn, provides intelligent and energy-efficient control of charging processes to make the best possible use of existing mains connections while making sure that the mobility needs of customers are always met. Depending on the use case, this can cut infrastructure and network costs by up to 70 percent or generate average savings of €250 per charging point and year. Thanks to its open interface architecture, the system is compatible with different AC and DC charging stations and the future integration of additional charging stations and modules is also possible.
“E-mobility only works with an open approach to technology. For that reason, reev promotes an open ecosystem and pursues hardware-neutral charging and energy management. It’s the only way to consistently break down barriers and drive climate-neutral mobility forward. Our collaboration with The Mobility House allows us to combine our know-how and create a joint offering to provide our customers with custom-fit, flexible, and cost-effective solutions,” explains Eduard Schlutius, CEO of reev.
“The smooth setup and operation of energy and charging management as well as the automated billing of charging processes are essential for our customers and provide the basis for successful and cost-efficient fleet electrification. Our customers benefit when established companies join forces as they are guaranteed to get the best possible solution," says Heiko Bayer, Chief Product Officer at The Mobility House.
