CharIN Academy GmbH

Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Communication in the form of the Combined Charging System (CCS) is a core enabling technology for fast charging EVs as well as for future smart grid integration.

Its interoperability is key for user acceptance and economies of scale, but at the same time a major technical challenge due to the huge number of different implementations, individual use cases and requirements on a diverse global market.

We promote CCS by creating different communication forums as exchange and training platforms!

What is the CharIN Academy GmbH?

The best possible visibility and a constant level of awareness are prerequisites on the way to a successful market penetration. In our age, products must be quickly visible on the international market and impress with an unmistakable recognition value. This can be achieved through the right mix of analog, digital and emotional communication. 

In the area of the "Combined Charging System (CCS)", we use a targeted selection of intelligent marketing tools. We also consolidate our global partner network at testivals, trade fairs, congresses, and specialized technology forums. 

CharIN Academy GmbH is the contracted organizing party of the CharIN association providing everyone an opportunity to benefit from live testing on-site, practice-oriented trainings on e-mobility and charging topics and by presentation of their portfolio on internatiopnal trade fairs.

The CharIN Academy GmbH is the contracted organizing party and is acting on behalf of CharIN e. V. to organize the CharIN Testivals, the trainings and events & trade fairs.

CharIN Global Testivals & Conferences

The CharIN Testival brings together companies from the Smart Charging community and their technology experts to conduct conformance & interoperability tests for electric vehicles and charging infrastructures or respective Electronic Control Units (ECUs) and Communication Controllers.

Rather than talking about interoperability, this is a hands-on event digging deep into implementing, supporting and testing interoperability. By participating at this event your company or organization benefits through unprecedented networking with international technology experts in smart charging communication.

The event takes place in different locations. Hosts are companies and institutions in the target area of CharIN e.V. Partners can apply to host one of the next events.
