The Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN), a leading trade association accelerating global decarbonization through the electrification of North American transport, today announced that the 5th Annual North America Conference and Testival will take place at the Lucid Motors Headquarters in Newark, California on November 16-18, 2021.
First, the CharIN North America Conference – held on November 16th – will provide attendees with the opportunity to convene alongside e-mobility colleagues and hear from industry leaders on the region’s most difficult challenges that arise from building and implementing smart charging infrastructure. Then – between November 17th and 18th – CharIN members will have the opportunity to conduct or observe conformance and interoperability tests involving electric vehicles (EVs), charging technologies, electric control units (ECUs), and communication controllers in tandem with peers and technology experts.
Stakeholders from across the Smart Charging community are encouraged to register by October 19th and may reserve up to four testing slots with one corporate registration. Participants also have an extraordinary opportunity to sponsor this event and raise visibility for their organization amongst the industry’s leading global brands, including attendees like BMW, Ford, Hyundai, Volvo Trucks, and countless others. In addition to these high-profile automotive companies, additional participants include charging station manufacturers, component suppliers, energy providers, government officials, and grid operators.
