Open E-Mobility allows you to efficiently supervise your entire charging infrastructure and e-fleet to best support EV drivers.
To fight the global climate issue and to reach the objectives of the Paris Agreement (e.g. cut of 50% reduction of CO2 emission by 2030), we need to support the society to make the usage of electric vehicles easier, to optimize the use of the energy and to develop the production of sustainable energy.
With these goals in mind, we built Open E-Mobility. Since SAP Labs France took the courageous step to convert its company car fleet to 100% electric vehicles in 2014, we have been using Open E-Mobility daily and are constantly working on further developments.
Open E-Mobility is a driving factor so that any charging network, every company, every fleet manager, any shop or residential building can become an actor of this evolution by producing, storing and consuming energy. Open E-Mobility provides a simple and efficient way to supervise your infrastructure and to enable drivers to move to electric vehicles smoothly.
Open E-Mobility allows you to supervise your entire infrastructure regardless of its complexity and to manage the drivers using RFID cards or our mobile app (Android / iOS). You can grant EV drivers access to different areas of your private or public charging network. Our solution can support different charging point types and brands, but also components for energy production or storage.
Open E-Mobility uses several sophisticated algorithms. Using our smart charging functions, Open E-Mobility monitors, manages, and adapts the use of charging points to optimize energy consumption while ensuring that your grid supply is not overloaded. In detail, this means that we smooth energy demand peaks so that more cars can be charged with the same power supply. We adapt the distribution of power (load balancing) according to priorities like VIP users and battery level. We optimize charging costs by using off-peak prices.
The core of Open E-Mobility provides connectivity with different charging point types - from slow AC chargers to DC fast chargers (Ultra Fast Charger) - of more than 50 manufacturers we have tested in our lab. A key differentiator to other solutions is our ability to connect with other components from the energy chain such as production (e.g. solar panels) or storage (e.g. batteries) and your smart building. In addition, Open E-Mobility can even manage complex infrastructures, including multiple companies, multiple sites, and charging areas. This connection of your assets allows you to control the access of your drivers.
Open E-Mobility is a versatile solution that supports different use cases by providing connectors and application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect to third-party software and other SAP solutions. Roaming, payment, and billing capabilities enable you to integrate your infrastructure into a larger network (e.g. Hubject, Gireve) and carry out payment processing (e.g. Stripe). To closely monitor the costs of your infrastructure and its operations, a connection to your ERP system can be established and consumption and revenue linked to related suppliers. Employees can see the cost of their loads in real time. These costs can be linked directly to the employee’s payroll or claimed for reimbursement.

Questions & Answers
Open E-Mobility is an energy supervision and smart charging solution and a holistic system for managing the charging processes of electric vehicles (CPMS – Charge Point Management System) in real time.
With this solution, you can optimize the sizing of your charging infrastructure while meeting network constraints and keeping track of your entire charging infrastructure and users.
Easy monitoring of charging operations at your charging stations enables efficient time management and optimized vehicle rotation at the individual charging points, optimizing their usefulness and preventing the installation of too many expensive chargers.
At the same time, Open E-Mobility provides an optimization of energy management (Energy Management System). Several energy production assets (e.g. solar panels), battery storage, buildings (smart building), and different charging points can be integrated, independently of their hardware manufacturer.
Using the smart charging function, an intelligent control balances load imbalances, avoids energy peaks, and thus minimizes electricity costs.
All information can be sent to multiple SAP and third-party software applications to obtain accurate information about cost, usage, and consumption.
These optimization procedures enable an efficient setup of charging infrastructures, improve their usability, and efficiently support the integration of e-vehicles into your business processes.
