CharIN Testival EUROPE 2024 – The Netherlands

The CharIN Testival returned to Arnhem for the third time to our host ElaadNL. From Plug & Charge demonstrations to ISO 15118-20 over Multi-PKI Testing and V2G Testing, the test sessions were a full success.

While signaling the beginning of the new Testival season, the CharIN Testival EUROPE 2024 in Arnhem, The Netherlands, also marked the 10th Testival in CharIN's history.

Three days overflowed with testing, interoperability pursuits, and collaborative moments encapsulating the essence of innovation in electric mobility.

Overall, 17 testing companies, including EV manufacturers, EVSE producers, testing systems, two testing sponsors, and over 120 attendees gathered in person at the knowledge and innovation center of our host, ElaadNL, whom CharIN collaborated with for the third time.

During the course of three days, the CharIN Testival EUROPE offered the perfect environment to test a variety of EVs on the interoperability with different electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), electric control units (ECUs), and communication controllers in a single location. Notably, several EVSE manufacturers attended their first Testival, highlighting not only the overall growth of the CharIN community, but also an increasing number of testing companies participating in these events.
