What Is the Difference Between e-Mobility Service Provider (eMSP) and Charge Point Operator (CPO)
The electric vehicle (EV) revolution is well underway. As more and more drivers opt for these more eco-friendly alternatives, understanding the ins and outs of the EV charging landscape is becoming increasingly important also.
The market is buzzing with terms like e-Mobility Service Provider (eMSP) and Charge Point Operator (CPO), but what do these mean, and how do they shape the EV charging experience?
In the ever-growing electric vehicle (EV) market, it's beneficial to understand the roles of e-Mobility Service Provider (eMSP) and Charge Point Operator (CPO) and how they shape the EV charging experience. Join Fortum Charge & Drive, a pioneering eMSP in the Nordics, as we navigate the EV charging terrain and shed light on these essential distinctions.
In this comprehensive guide, we'll navigate the EV charging terrain from the vantage point of Fortum Charge & Drive.
What Is the Difference Between e-Mobility Service Provider (eMSP) and Charge Point Operator (CPO)?
Charge Point Operators, or CPOs, are responsible for the physical infrastructure of EV charging.
Charge Point Operators, or CPOs, are responsible for the physical infrastructure of EV charging. They own and manage EV charging stations, ensuring the functionality of chargers and managing the energy supply. From installation and maintenance to upgrades and troubleshooting, CPOs are the caretakers of the stations that keep our electric vehicles running. Fortum Charge & Drive's Charge Point Opertors' list here.
e-Mobility Service Providers (eMSPs), such as Fortum Charge & Drive, serve as the link between EV drivers and the charging infrastructure provided by CPOs. They develop and provide digital platforms, usually mobile applications or RFID keys, that drivers can use to access charging stations, initiate charging sessions, view their charging history, and find available charging points.
Fortum Charge & Drive works hand-in-hand with a multitude of CPOs across the Nordics and Europe. This collaborative model allows Fortum Charge & Drive to offer EV drivers access to a vast network of charging points, ensuring seamless and hassle-free charging experiences across borders.
