The Open Charge Point Interface protocol (OCPI) supports connections between eMobility Service Providers who have EV drivers as customers, and Charge Point Operators who manage charge stations. This protocol is free to use and independent. It can work both bilateral as well as in combination with roaming hubs. Everyone can participate in the development of OCPI.

OCPI and OICP (Hubject) are two key roaming protocols. GreenFlux supports both protocols but is more aligned with OCPI. For example: Our API responses for Locations, Sessions etc. are aligned to the OCPI format.
The most widely used version is OCPI 2.1.1.
