CharIN launches new taskforce for wireless power transfer

The Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN) is a global alliance of EV and EVSE providers that promotes universal charging standards such as CCS, MCS and ISO 15118.

Now CharIN has launched a Wireless Power Transfer Taskforce, initiated by Siemens, WiTricity, and MAHLE, in order to drive the adoption and standardization of wireless charging solutions for EVs.

Currently, there are remaining gaps in standardization that pose challenges to vehicle OEMs and the imminent deployment of wireless charging, says CharIN. The new taskforce will actively work towards harmonizing standards in wireless power transfer (WPT) technology while focusing on a static 11 kW charging system.

By resolving open points in existing WPT standards, the Taskforce aims to create a foundation for seamless, efficient and universal wireless charging solutions. By defining rigorous test procedures and certification guidelines for interoperability, the Taskforce aims to ensure that wireless charging solutions are reliable, efficient, and compatible across different platforms. The Taskforce will also focus on clearing the co-existence of relevant technologies for wireless power transfer.

“Through the establishment of our new CharIN Taskforce, we pave the way for a new era of smart charging,” says Claas Bracklo, Chairman of CharIN e.V.

The Taskforce invites both CharIN members and non-members to participate actively in shaping the future of wireless charging technology. Companies interested in joining the Taskforce should contact CharIN via e-mail.
