What is an EV Charging Platform and how can it benefit your business

What is an EV Charging Platform

An EV charging platform is a cloud-based software for the management, monetization, and operation of electric vehicle charge stations with real-time information for the monitoring and optimization of EV charging networks.

Why use an EV Charging Platform

The electric vehicle charging market is projected to grow significantly in the coming years. To reach carbon neutrality in the transport sector by 2050,1 Europe needs many more electric vehicles on the road and many, many more charge stations.2

To prevent stranded assets and meet the demands of a quickly growing industry with increasing complexity, EV charging platforms are fast becoming necessary for managing and monitoring multiple charge stations across various locations and segments. Statistical information about network performance is vital for optimizing and analyzing business decisions and enhancing the charging experiences of EV drivers.

EV charging platforms can enable specialized services and technologies for charging networks, with different functions and modules being made available for home, workplace and public charging. Roaming, smart charging, EV fleet management, and payment solutions for charging sessions can provide businesses with a range of efficient and flexible technologies to maximize their operations.

What benefits can an EV Charging Platform provide

EV charging platforms ideally provide connections between charge point operators and eMobility service providers, and use standard protocols such as OCPP and OCPI. The use of standard protocols enables interoperability between providers in the industry, making it easier to integrate and communicate across a range of hardware, technologies and infrastructure. This can benefit EV charging businesses by reducing operational costs and securing scalability both now and for the future.
