Videos from 8th International CCS & ISO/IEC 15118 Testing Symposium

A unique opportunity to meet the growing number of international e-mobility experts with the aim to increase interoperability charging solutions.

Did you make it to Shanghai this April 19th and 20th? Hundreds of top EV engineers and programmers descended on the 8th International CCS & ISO/IEC 15118 Testing Symposium. These important industry events aim to increase the interoperability of charging solutions and conformity to the ISO 15118 standard across the globe. The Communication Network Institute of the Technical University Dortmund joins ISO and IEC to hold these symposia twice a year, rotating between Asia, Europe, and North America.

In our fast-growing industry, it couldn’t be more important to converge and converse with professionals from around the world. These symposia give us the unique opportunity not only to get to know the fast-growing community of international e-mobility experts, but also to test our products for interoperability. In person, we discuss the current state of the industry and innovate with each other toward our common goal: global mass adoption of e-mobility through compatible, user-friendly, and secure charging solutions.

Whether you made it or not, I have a hunch you’ll appreciate surveying the scene as we experts rolled up our sleeves and tested communication controllers.

Testing our EV and charging station software in-person puts us on the fast track to creating interoperable inventions that move this industry forward. In this next video, check out a sneak peek inside the case I bring it to every testing event - and I've been to seven out of eight of them.

Do you want to test your device with mine, along with dozens of others at the next conference? Then be sure to save the date for the upcoming 10th International CCS & ISO/IEC 15118 Testing Symposium. It will take place in Arnhem, Netherlands on November 15th and 16th. This testing event will be for actual EVs and charging stations, along with EV and charging station communication controllers. Click here for the save-the-date announcement and visit for up-to-date news and information. I'll plan to see you there! 

The 9th Symposium will take place on the 11th and 12th of September in Detroit, Michigan. It’s co-located with the 1st CharIN North American CCS and ISO/IEC 15118 Interop Event, which will take place on the 10th of September. There will be a focus on EV and EVSE testing only at this event, meaning there will be no controller tests. While I won’t be able to make it to Detroit, I’ll definitely be at the Anniversary Edition Symposium and I hope to see you there!

Since we have published our ISO 15118 Manual it has been purchased by the biggest names in our industry and has become standard literature.

as well as Daimler, Porsche, Shell, Tritium, and many more...

As we were intensively implementing and testing
ISO 15118, we noticed there was a lack of overview of Plug & Charge and the whole supply chain amongst
our stakeholders.

Our training with Marc helped us achieve a much better understanding of the whole ecosystem. It led to constructive discussions on the requirements and concept of ISO 15118 in general.

Angelika Neuleitner,

charging system Specialist at Ionity

Working with recognized standards is the right way forward for the integration of electric vehicles into the grid, and we value Switch’s strong experience with the ISO 15118 standard.

We were able to leverage Marc’s insights to corner some of the keys issues pertinent to V2G in the published standard that needed to be addressed.

Hamza Lemsaddek,

Director embedded solutions at Nuvve Corporation

Attending Switch’s intensive two day training with the team gave us a deep dive into ISO 15118 and the different use cases.

We were able to validate our design with regards to the ecosystem and beyond. We now have a head start for the development of our next generation chargers and are able to support our customers for the deployment of the equipment all over Europe.

Johan Devos,

business development Manager at ENOvates

Certificate handling in ISO 15118 is a quite complex issue. Marc’s well prepared one-day course on this topic and his deep knowledge helped us to train our team and speed up the development of the ISO 15118 Plug & Charge
charging controller.

Johannes Bergmann,

eMobility Charging Systems DEVELOPER at SIEMENS AG

When I was working with students on ISO 15118 projects, Marc's courses tremendously helped in getting students to understand the standard quickly and dive into coding without hesitation. Marc's crystal-clear explanations with eye-catching graphics will make you an EV charging expert in one week.

Minho Shin,

Professor at Myongji University

In two exciting training days, Marc quickly and effectively explained ISO15118 communication to our experienced development team. In addition to the in-depth technical knowledge, the information about the communication standards that are still being established is very valuable. The training will definitely help us to make the implementation more effective.
