Room
Room 13 B

This interactive session looks at the crucial role of common standards for the development, introduction and scaling of the e-mobility ecosystem. Universal interoperability of electric vehicles, electric charging infrastructure and associated digital services need common standards based on rigid conformance testing and certification. Agreeing on common standards for physical, electric and electronic interfaces is in everyone's interest and will promote efficient product development and series production. Recognized certifications will create a market-pull and commercial incentive for common standards.
