European Research Center for Information Systems / University of Münster
International network of scientists, conducting cooperative research in the field of Information Systems.
At the university of Münster we are researching how owners of private charging points could open up their facilities to other electric vehicle owners to park and charge their vehicle whenever the charging point is idle. For this endeavor to succeed, innovative business models and a technical solution need to be designed and implemented. Therefore, we closely watch the Open Charge Alliance (OCA) respectively the advancements of the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) to be on par with the latest developments. Our research project by the name of “CrowdStrom” adopts the paradigms of collaborative consumption and crowdsourcing to address today’s problem of a lacking charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Unfortunately, our project’s website is only available in German so far: http://crowdstrom.de/
Liaison: standard setting, defining organisation or network organisation that has supportive interest in OCA standards
