Open Source & Electromobility: The Future of Charging Infrastructure

While there are more and more electric cars on the roads, there are still major challenges, especially in the charging infrastructure. Above all, the compatibility of different offerings, versions and manufacturers is an important factor here. And to prevent everyone from working on their own proprietary software solution, open source is becoming increasingly important. But what does this look like in concrete terms? What open source solutions are currently available? And how will the charging market in general develop in the medium term? We talk about this with Marco Möller, founder and CEO of PIONIX.

  • 02:39 Open source is becoming increasingly important not only in the software world, but also in electromobility and charging infrastructure. Why?
  • 08:11 About the advantages over proprietary software solutions
  • 13:05 Are there challenges or concerns related to the use of open source technologies in charging infrastructure?
  • 17:47 Where is the market going in general? We are seeing more and more vehicles from China in Europe. But it still looks quite different when it comes to software and charging infrastructure, doesn't it?

About Marco Möller and PIONIX

PIONIX develops EVerest, a full-featured commercial open source SW platform for charging stations and a reference HW ready to use. Our open platform provides a broad ecosystem for electric vehicle charging that can be easily extended by the open source community and used by any commercial party. PIONIX, as the main developer of the EVerest ecosystem, will provide integration and maintenance services and sell the reference hardware that can be used as a development kit.

Marco Möller is founder and CEO of PIONIX. He previously founded the start-up MAVCinci with three friends back in 2008. There, everything revolved around drones for land exploration and the associated software. Even after the successful exit and sale to Intel in 2016, Marco remained in the start-up world: as mentor, advisor and of course as co-founder and CEO of PIONIX.
