How is Plug&Charge Moving Charging Forward?

Sidles will also explain how its capabilities will drive EV adoption and empower many additional enhancements and features for automakers and utilities.
Plug&Charge, otherwise known as ISO/IEC 15118, is a robust communication protocol that will dramatically simplify charging by eliminating the need for apps, RFID cards, and credit cards to access chargers.
In addition to creating the best user experience for charging, the advanced communication protocol paves the road for smart charging, bi-directional charging, inductive charging and enhancements needed for autonomous driving.
