This paper presents a semantic description of an evaluation framework that has been defined in the context of the GreenCharge European project. GreenCharge aims at developing innovative solutions to accelerate the transition to e-mobility. In particular, we present an original OWL Ontology, which describes and relates all the various basic concepts of the Business Models and of the relevant knowledge that is necessary for evaluating the impact on sustainable mobility and on energy utilization by developed solutions.
