What is OCPP? The Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) is a protocol for communication between an EV Charging Station and a central Back Office system. The Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) is a freely available open standard that enables component vendors and network operators to “mix and match” interoperable hardware and software. Today charging network operators and service providers in more than 50 countries rely on OCPP to manage more than 10,000 charging stations.
Does SSE support OCPP? Yes. SSE charging products support OCPP1.6. Currently, SSE’s OCPP has been tested and certified with official tools, and has successfully docked with Taiwan and Finland OCPP servers. It can be compatible with servers from different manufacturers.
