About CharIN Testival 2019

Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Communication in the form of the Combined Charging System (CCS) is a core enabling technology for fast charging EVs as well as for future Smart Grid integration. Its interoperability is key for user acceptance and economies of scale, but at the same time a major technical challenge due to the huge number of different implementations, individual use cases and requirements on a diverse global market.

The CharIN Testival embraces this challenge and brings together companies from the Smart Charging community and their technology experts to conduct conformance & interoperability tests for Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructures or respective Electronic Control Units (ECUs) and Communication Controllers.

The first CharIN Testival delivers a unique opportunity for your company to:

  • participate in tests on-site and evaluate communication between EVs and EVSEs
    with the latest systems on the market
  • take a tour of the testing lot offering an opportunity to see electric vehicles, chargers, communication controllers and test systems available or coming to the market in the very near future
  • take a deep dive in networking and exchange with CCS experts from around the globe, e.g. at the accompanying CharIN Europe Conference
