Technical details inbound API

The inbound API is made for the CPO (Charging Point Operator) and eSMP (e-Mobility Service Provider) to insert and update their charging points (CPO) or pricing data (eSMP) in the database of Eco-Movement. Eco-Movement supports multiple inbound API’s.

2. oplaadpalen.nl APIThe oplaadpalen.nl api is used before 2018 by several CPO’s, and is still supported by Eco-Movement.
3. VAS API – This is a legacy api used by many CPO’s before 2018, and is still supported by Eco-Movement
4. Amsterdam-Essent API – This is a legacy api used by many CPO’s before 2018, and is still supported by Eco-Movement
5. Custom KML API – An API based on the KML standard of google earth (on request of a CPO we can build custom API’s)
6. Custom JSON / XML API – An API based on JSON / XML (on request of a CPO we can build custom API’s)

Process

Before a connection is made between the CPO and Eco-Movement an extensive test period will be made. During this test period, it will be checked whether the data for both parties is satisfactory, and whether all real-time statuses are passed on properly. Only when the CPO is completely satisfied with the result, the data will go LIVE.
