Using Plug&Charge To Advance EV Charging: A Webinar With Hubject & CleanTechnica

Did you miss our Plug&Charge webinar last week with Hubject? You can read about the webinar and watch the full conversation here. Hubject will be hosting another webinar in May, so be sure register in advance!

Last week CleanTechnica Director Zachary Shahan chatted with Barton Sidles, Director of Corporate and Business Development from Hubject, about ISO 15118, a communication protocol that will simplify EV charging with Plug&Charge capability and help drive EV adoption.

ISO 15118 is a robust communication protocol that facilitates communication between new electric vehicles and charging stations. One of the first features to be implemented using ISO 15118 is Plug&Charge, which simplifies the user experience, and increases security as well. Connecting to a Plug&Charge enabled charging station means no cards, no apps, and no logins.

This advanced communication protocol also paves the way for smart charging, bi-directional charging, inductive charging, and enhancements needed for autonomous driving. There are vehicle-to-grid opportunities as well as benefits for fleet management.

In the webinar, Bart did a slide presentation and shared the details about about Plug&Charge and ISO 15118, including:

  • How Plug&Charge will drive EV adoption through simplified and enhanced customer experience;
  • How it unlocks energy management capabilities and valuable features for automakers, utilities and other eMobility businesses;
  • Why major industry players like VW, BMW, Daimler, Electrify America and Greenlots are onboard with this technology; and
  • How Hubject is helping advance the technology more quickly.

Learn more about this new technology by watching the webinar below (it’s about 55 minutes). In May, we will be hosting a follow-up webinar that dives deeper into the technical aspects that make Plug&Charge so valuable and interesting. This webinar will be May 9 at 9am PST/12pm EST– sign up with advance registration here.
