Charging Infrastructure: Flexibility is Key

The Charging Initiative e.V. (CharIN) has published an industry statement explaining the requirements for future charging infrastructure.

 

In the coming years, there will be multiple electric vehicles (EVs) on the market that offer higher battery capacities and support faster or ultra-fast charging. The new technological evolution demands a quick implementation in order to shorten charging times for the EV customers. The charging infrastructure needs to be prepared for this.  

 

The industry statement addresses major demands such as flexible voltage and stresses the importance of compatibility of future charging infrastructure with new and existing EVs.
