Mass adoption of electric vehicles is critical for reducing CO2 emissions and mitigating the impact of global climate change. CharIN and AVERE (The European Association for Electromobility) are organizations that understand the importance of e-mobility for the future of our planet.
The two groups have jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This document summarizes an agreement to work together to advance and improve the techniques and products involved in the electric vehicle charging value chain.
The ultimate purpose of the agreement is to “increase the acceptance and support of electromobility by National and European bodies.”
“The CharIN association includes members from the global EV charging value chain,” said Claas Bracklo, Chairman of the CharIN e.V. “EVs play a key role in the mobility concept of the future and the future is now. Governmental bodies need to leverage the development at all involved levels to accelerate the transformation toward a clean and carbon free mobility.”
“The key to the success of electrification is a joint undertaking. This MoU is the perfect example of this as we want to achieve the acceleration towards sustainable mobility and there is no time to waste”, stated Philippe Vangeel, Secretary General of AVERE.
CharIN is an international association of vehicle manufacturers, energy providers and original equipment manufacturers with one common goal: To establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the global standard for charging all types of battery powered electric vehicles. CharIN has over 180 members along the whole value chain from all over the world. It is open to all interested parties and has offices in Germany, Hong Kong, South Korea, India, Japan, China and the US. Please find more information at: www.charinev.org
AVERE (The European Association for Electromobility) is an association that promotes electromobility and sustainable transport across Europe. AVERE’s members include national associations supporting and encouraging the use of electric vehicles and electromobility across Europe. They have active members in 17 European countries, including some of the most successful EV countries like Norway, France, The Netherlands and Belgium. To learn more, please visit: www.avere.org
CharIN and AVERE look forward to working together on common objectives.
