ISO/TS 21219-16 specifies the TPEG application: Fuel price information and availability (FPI). The FPI application has been specifically designed to support information of fuel stations, their location, fuel types offered and fuel pricing and availability information. The standardized delivery, via TPEG technology, of fuel price information has the following benefits to end users of a TPEG service: a) cost savings to driver, through improved ease of access to price information; b) improved ease of access to price information that may lead to significant cost savings for fleet operators; c) environmental benefits from drivers not having to drive around to find the cheapest fuel prices; d) safety improvements for highways authorities, as drivers are less likely to run out of fuel if they are well informed of local availability and prices; e) as availability of new fuels become more common and more vehicles use them (e.g. biofuels, hydrogen, etc.), drivers will be better informed about availability of fuelling stations. The TPEG application Fuel price information and availability, as add-on service component next to, for example, traffic information, is laid out to support large numbers of fuel stations and fuel prices with only modest bandwidth requirements. When the objective is to inform electric vehicles on the location of charging stations and the availability of charging points, the TPEG application TPEG2-EMI (Electro Mobility Information) shall be chosen. TPEG2-FPI contains rudimentary support for electric charging stations. However, a TISA investigation revealed that a simple extension/differentiation of TPEG2-FPI would not be sufficient to address the evolving market needs of the electric vehicle market. Hence, a separate TPEG application was created to serve the information needs of Electric Vehicles and their operators: TPEG2-EMI.
