Updates to database and upcoming OCPI module

Dear NOBIL user,

Due to the electrification of new means of transport we saw the need to update the way we used the category “Vehicle type”.

Before the value “All vehicles” was used for all electric cars. As we now see the introduction of electric trucks and busses, we needed to rename this value. The former “All vehicles” is now named “Rechargeable cars and vans” which is a more precise way of what the value de facto was meant for. Meanwhile, a new category is created, named the same as the former “All vehicles”. The new value is meant for stations where all vehicles can charge: busses, trucks and cars.

Next week a new vehicle type will also be added – “Biogass vehicles”. Two new connector IDs will be added – “Biogass LBG” and “Biogass CBG”, and under “Energy carrier” a new one named “Biogass” will be added. When adding stations of this kind, we will simply use the ID “unspecified” under the ID “Charging Capacity”.

For the OCPI v2.1.1 interface we are now very close to starting to import from the Charge Points Operatos (CPO). Towards the end of this week, we will import the Norwegian CPOs Mer, Kople, and Eviny. For API users this will simply mean that the data quality is higher than before as we do not have to rely on manual entry of new stations from the CPOs which we have an OCPI connection with. This means that we should have 100 % coverage from the CPOs that we have imported through OCPI. Stations that are already in the NOBIL database will be updated / merged by the new ones received from the OCPI.

Real time data is still a work in progress – we are prioritizing getting static data through OCPI from all the major CPOs in the Nordics before implementing real time data.

There are some limitations in the OCPI data. For example, the location ID. We used to specify if a charging station was at the street level, car park, airport, shopping center, et. Cetera. Now, however, we do not receive that data through the OCPI, meaning that all stations updated through OCPI will now have the ID for location set to “street”.

No realtime until autumn 2022

Dear NOBIL-user,

We are working hard on getting our OCPI integration in place. Until then we are manually registering data in the NOBIL database. For real time usage, only the Norwegian operator Mer was supported. But, with our new integration of OCPI we will get real time from all large charge points operators in the Nordics. However, until then, all real time has been stopped. 

The new data registration functionality is an implementation of a new OCPI v2.1.1 interface, which will allow CPOs to automatically publish data to NOBIL. Since multiple CPOs can utilize the same back-office system, integrating one system can connect NOBIL to multiple CPOs at the same time, given that there is an agreement between the individual CPOs and Enova. 

We hope that the new functionality will increase NOBILs value for all the users of NOBIL, may it be CPOs, service providers, data analyzers or others.

Tesla stations in Sweden

This week Energimyndigheten, admin of Nobil Sweden, changed the attributes of all the chargers on 42 Tesla Supercharger stations in Sweden. The change is mainly on ID. 4 “Connector”, which they have changed from “Tesla Connector Model” to “CCS/Combo”. 

This is done because Tesla have opened 42 of their stations to all EVs. All connectors at Tesla stations have technically been CCS for a while, but we decided to keep them as “Tesla Connector Model” in NOBIL as they could for a long while solely be used by Tesla vehicles. With the opening of the network everyone can now use the chargers on these stationss, and as such we are now labeling them as CCS. The ones still labeled Tesla Connector Model are closed / only open for Tesla users.
