European fast charging networks work together to promote seamless electric travel


Five European fast charging networks have agreed to form the Open Fast Charging Alliance, which will enable roaming throughout a network of fast chargers all over Europe.

The founding members are Fastned (Netherlands), Sodetrel (France), Smatrics (Austria), Grønn Kontakt (Norway) and GOtthard FASTcharge (Switzerland). Together, the alliance members own and operate more than 500 fast chargers in 6 countries. The alliance is open to other networks that adhere to its standards.

The alliance will focus on bilateral roaming agreements by implementing open standards such as OCPI. The first implementations are planned within the year.
