Focus Group Set up

The target of CharIN is to continuously and competently advance the combined charging system (CCS), with the aim to establish this system as the leading standard for charging battery-powered electric vehicles.

CCS combines the advantages of existing charging systems into one single solution that can handle any charging scenario. To help develop this standard, CharIN has five expert groups, divided as followed:


Charging Infrastructure

Charging Infrastructure

  • Harmonization of the ramp-up of CCS charging infrastructure and the involved charging process based on the market needs: removing market entry barriers for EV owners, charge point operators and manufacturers
  • Product Lifecycle Management perspective on CCS

  • Define processes on how to qualify CCTS, agile IOP,  test houses, EV and EVSE based on the different compliance levels and profiles
  • Interoperability of customer use cases beyond scope of CCTS (e.g. authentication sequence)
  • Maintenance of CCTS Specification (HW, SW, Test Cases)
  • Definition of a vendor-neutral CCTS specification which is compliant with CharIN
