At the 6th CharIN NORTH AMERICA Conference we heared exciting news from industry leaders on the biggest trends, challenges, and opportunities in the e-mobility industry.
The Conference featured four extraordinary panels and 2 Fireside Chats covering the critical topics facing the industry – from federal and state policy to grid resiliency, consumer adoption issues, and plug & charge.
Everyone had the opportunity to connect with other CharIN members and hear from industry speakers on how to best tackle the region’s most difficult challenges that arise from building and effectively implementing smart charging.

Panel 1: The Future of Charging Reliability
This session will describe the need for a better customer experience starting with charger reliability.
We'll examine the reliability requirements outlined in the new California and National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure funding and answer questions like:
- How can we improve service through the features and functionality of ISO-15118?
- How can we provide more driver transparency around things like charger availability and rate of charge?
- How could we add new features, like increased fees for power delivery rates?
...and much more.
Panel 2: Changes in ISO-15118-20 and Plug and Charge Update
This session will describe the technical changes in latest ISO 15118-20 and where CharIN is headed with Plug & Charge/PKI and creating a certificate via CharIN. We'll also talk about the upcoming CharIN conformance testing with 15118 and the related VOLTS event in California.
Panel 3: Policy and State Update
2022 has been a huge year for federal and state EV policy and we will discuss how these policy and regulatory changes will directly impact the CharIN community. We'll also discuss the opportunities to use new standards, like MCS, to help support things like the Advanced Clean Truck Rule and Advanced Clean Fleet Rule, the technical implications of the NEVI program, and much more.
Panel 4: The In's and Out's of the Megawatt Charging System (MCS)
This session will describe the fundamentals of MCS, the technical, policy and business impacts of MCS, and the "messy middle" transition from CCS to MCS for medium- and heavy-duty EVs and future proofing EVSE today to accommodate MCS for the future (e.g., planning for dual nozzles). This session will also describe MCS opportunities to move beyond on-road to air, marine, and rail.
Fireside Chat 1 : Future electric utility constraints with MCS
This session will take a hard look at the real world constraints of our current electrical grid in meeting the multi-megawatt demands of MCS. We'll have speakers from the grid operations and charging infrastructure world to relay the difficulties experienced to date, as well as provide solutions for the future to meet the moment and deploy infrastructure at the scale and speed necessary.
Fireside Chat 2: The Future of CharIN North America
This session will provide a look ahead to CharIN North America's plans and activities in the coming year and collect audience feedback on what they would like to see in the future.
