eMI³ WG5 – Communications Protocol – Call for Nominations

The eMobility ICT Interoperability Innovation (eMI³) Platform is focused on driving E-Mobility market developments and is striving to standardize the communication between Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations, also known as Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) and the managing back-end systems and interfaces (EVSE Operator or Charge Management System). Representative of the current state of the electric vehicles market, with both significant and small-size players, the collective is driven by the common vision and belief that, harmonising the way ICT data is exchanged between the various platforms used by each and all of the actors, will inevitably:

Remove key obstacles to, and drive faster the development of a larger global eMobility market;
Drive global growth and utilisation of PEV related products and services; and
Increase the convenience and adoption rate of electric vehicles.

We are now in the process of building a clear picture of the existing standards landscape around EVSE and establishing standardization requirements and are seeking candidate protocols through this Call for Nominations. In addition to a number of proprietary protocols, we have already received nominations from BCPP (from BELECTRIC Drive) and OCPP (http://www.ocpp.nl/) but would very much welcome further nominations.

We therefore would like to invite you to offer your candidate protocol nominations by 2nd November 2013. Further details on what we are looking for can be found in the Call for Nominations.

We would be grateful if you could also forward this call to other relevant stakeholders whom you believe would have an interest in contributing.
If you have any questions or would like to contribute to the work of eMI³, or simply stay in touch with our activities please don’t hesitate to contact us.

With kind regards,
