The Charging Interface Initiative e.V. (CharIN e.V.) announces its 1st North American CCS and ISO/IEC 15118 Interop Event, featuring:

  • September 10th - CCS and ISO/IEC 15118 Interop Workshop
  • September 11th – 12th - the 9th CCS & ISO/IEC 15118 Testing Symposium
  • September 13th - High-Power Charging for Commercial Vehicles Task Force meeting


The event will be held at the NextEnergy center in Detroit, MI. The event is co-sponsored by Daimler Trucks North America, NextEnergy, IEEE, Phoenix Contact, IoTecha and Vector.


The one-day Interop Workshop will focus on CCS and ISO/IEC 15118 interoperability, applications enabled by this technology, discussions with experts sharing their experience and real-life examples of how CCS with ISO/IEC 15118 helps to grow the adoption of e-mobility and the EV market in general. During the panel discussions, leading OEMs, utilities, and regulators will examine EV and Grid integration challenges and opportunities.


The 9th CCS & ISO/IEC 15118 Testing Symposium taking place for 2 days will bring together companies from the Smart Charging community and their technology experts to conduct conformance & interoperability tests of different Electric Vehicles (EV) and Chargers (EVSE). This hands-on event, which will delve deeply into implementing, supporting and testing interoperability, will offer a unique opportunity to participate in tests on-site, evaluate communication between EVs and EVSEs, work with the latest test systems on the market. Attendees can also take a tour of the testing lot, offering an opportunity to see electric vehicles, chargers and test systems available or coming to market in the very near future.


The High-Power Charging of Commercial Vehicles Task Force meeting will focus on the next frontier of CCS specifically addressing the needs of commercial vehicles at megawatt and above levels. Experts from manufacturing companies, utilities, fleet operators, and service providers will discuss the future of e-mobility for trucks, buses, pick-ups and other types of commercial vehicles powered by CCS.


These multifaceted events will deliver unprecedented networking opportunities with international CCS experts and serve as a platform for achieving CharIN’s primary objective, which is to establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the global standard for AC and DC charging and to enable multivendor interoperability worldwide.
