Over in Canada, the Federal Government is working to establish a single payment system for all charge points across the nation. It isn’t clear what Mogile Technologies are looking at, but at a simple level, it suggests that an OCPI hub would play a role. The proposal seems to centre around the Charge-Hub offering vehicles, home charging and common access to a number of networks. It does seem a little like re-inventing an existing product, but for an EV driver in a country this size, it is likely to prove a useful boost to encouraging the shift to greener, cleaner travel.
The Association already supports the move toward a single access system, irrespective of which network you sign up with, allowing all networks access to greater revenue streams.
