The Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN) is a trade association that promotes the Combined Charging Standard (CCS). A major aspect of its work is to facilitate real-world testing of its members’ products. Now CharIN has announced that the 5th North America Conference and Testival will take place at Lucid Motors Headquarters in Newark, California on November 16-18, 2021.
On November 16th, attendees will hear from industry leaders and e-mobility experts about the latest opportunities arising from building and implementing smart charging infrastructure. Then, between November 17th and 18th, attendees will be able to conduct or observe conformance and interoperability tests involving EVs, EVSE, electric control units (ECUs), communication controllers and more, together with peers and technology experts.
Stakeholders from across the Smart Charging community may reserve up to four testing slots with one corporate registration. CharIN says over 100 attendees have already registered to attend this year’s event, including representatives from automotive OEMs, charging station manufacturers, component suppliers, energy providers, government officials and grid operators. Expected participants include BMW, Ford, Hyundai, Lucid, Daimler, Rivian, and Volvo Trucks, as well as ABB, BTCPower, ChargePoint, DEKRA, EDAG, Efacec, ElectricFish, EVBox, EVgo, FreeWire, Heliox, IoTecha, Keysight Technologies, Phihong, Rhombus, Signet, SparkCharg, and VERISCO.
