Just a few weeks after hosting the press for their "Charge Forward"
technology workshop, Electrify America played host again, this time for the
2019 Combined Charging System Testing Symposium.

More than 200 engineers and technical experts from global automakers,
charging equipment manufacturers, charging networks and related companies
gathered at Electrify America's Center of Excellence laboratory to test the
next-generation technologies for electric vehicle charging.

Several global automakers tested vehicles at the symposium including Audi,
Fiat Chrysler, Karma Automotive and BMW of North America. BMW even brought
pre-production versions of their yet-to-be-released MINI Electric and BMW
iX3 for testing. 

    “As a leader in the development of EV infrastructure, Electrify America
was excited to host industry game-changers as we work to set an
international standard for EV charging technology,” said Cliff Fietzek,
director of technology of Electrify America. “Electrify America recognizes
the impact of this technology on the future of electric vehicle charging,
specifically in creating customer convenience and encouraging EV adoption.”

While the symposium was held at Electrify America's headquarters in Reston,
Virginia, it was co-hosted by Hubject, and supported by CharIN. The
participants came together to test conformance and interoperability for
electric vehicles and the supporting charging infrastructure. The goal for
the 11th International Testing Symposium was to facilitate cooperation
between international automakers implementing the non-proprietary Combined
Charging System (CCS).

Attendees also shared information, research, best practices and data in an
effort to help accelerate the implementation of ISO 15188, commonly known as
Plug & Charge technology. Plug & Charge allows the charging station to
automatically authenticate the vehicle, like Tesla Superchargers do. The
owner simply plugs in the vehicle - that's all. There's no need for a credit
card, or RFID card to swipe. The owner's account is automatically billed for
the charging session. 

Electrify America has already announced that they will begin implementing
Plug & Charge technology by the end of this year.  


-press release-
Electrify America Hosts International Testing Symposium for Combined
Charging System Global automakers, charging equipment manufacturers gathered
at Electrify America Center of Excellence laboratory to test next-generation
technologies for electric vehicle charging

Reston, VA (May 21, 2019) – Electrify America’s Center of Excellence
technology laboratory provided the setting on May 16-17 for the 11th
International Testing Symposium for the Combined Charging System, bringing
together more than 200 engineers and technical experts from global
automakers, charging equipment manufacturers, charging networks and related
companies to test the next-generation technologies for electric vehicle
charging.

Several global automakers tested vehicles at the symposium including: Audi;
BMW of North America (tested Mini Electric and iX3 pre-production cars);
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles; and Karma Automotive.


The symposium, hosted by Electrify America, co-hosted by Hubject and
supported by CharIN, brought together international technical experts to
test conformance and interoperability for electric vehicles (EVs) and
charging infrastructure. The goal for the 11th International Testing
Symposium was to facilitate cooperation between international automakers
implementing the non-proprietary Combined Charging System (CCS), which is
the most widely used standard for EV charging globally.


“As a leader in the development of EV infrastructure, Electrify America was
excited to host industry game-changers as we work to set an international
standard for EV charging technology,” said Cliff Fietzek, director of
technology of Electrify America. “Electrify America recognizes the impact of
this technology on the future of electric vehicle charging, specifically in
creating customer convenience and encouraging EV adoption.”


Over the course of the two-day event, attendees shared information,
research, best practices and data to advance the implementation of ISO
15118, a protocol that enables the most prevalent functionality for the CCS
standard. Attendees also tested the “Plug & Charge” feature of ISO 15118
which enables a vehicle to automatically authenticate payment and authorize
a charging session using secure digital communication, thereby eliminating
the need for membership RFID cards, credit cards or mobile apps.
