CURRENT is now OCPP 1.6 certified


It’s official! CURRENT is one of four worldwide to be OCPP 1.6 Fully certified by the Open Charge Alliance.

The Open Charge Alliance (OCA), an international partnership of more than 180 companies active in the field of electric mobility, has an independent certification program of the industry standard called Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP).

We are proud to be one of the first companies worldwide to be OCPP 1.6 certified. And even more so, being the only certified product in the Nordics, says Tom Orvei, CURRENT CEO. The certification gives companies the confidence that there are proven solutions on the market that can accelerate EV adoption, while also raising the level of trust among EV drivers.

OCPP’s goal as an open industry standard is to offer a uniform solution for the method of communication between charging stations for EVs and the Charging Station Management System (CSMS). This protocol allows any CSMS to connect with any charging station, regardless of the vendor. A uniform standard prevents all kinds of coordination problems and is therefore an advantage for the entire electric vehicle market.

SmartCharge is a product fully based on adopting OCPP standardisation now and in the future, to facilitate global implementation and make charging smart, safe and simple anywhere in the world.

With SmartCharge, we are committed to continual innovation and expansion with the support of OCA protocols, as we provide support for more than 30 different charger types already. As a proud member of OCA, we look forward to what the future holds and continue to be our customers’ preferred choice for the deployment of smart and sustainable EV charging infrastructure, finishes Tom Orvei.
