Researching & testing smart and sustainable charging


INVITATION for July 7 & 8, 2021

Best practices and Power Quality will be the central themes during this third edition of the Global EV Charging Test event, hosted by ElaadNL. Because of the uncertain covid-related regulations, we are organising an online event. In the future we hope to meet you in person at our new testlab!

For different charging modes, like mode 3 and 15118, AC and DC charging, fast- and slow-charging, different experts will present their lessons learned and best practices related to communication, interoperability, smart charging, and power quality. And like last year deep dives into the Power Quality research will be hosted by different experts from the field. During these deep dive sessions, you will be updated about the research status on relevant topics and have the opportunity to ask questions to the researchers.

PROGRESSUS supports the European climate targets for 2030 by proposing a next generation smart grid, demonstrated by the application example “smart charging infrastructure” that integrates seamlessly into the already existing concepts of smart-grid architectures keeping additional investments minimal. The expected high-power requirements for ultra fast charging stations lead to special challenges for designing and establishing an intelligent charge-infrastructure. As emission free traffic concepts are a nascent economic topic also the efficient use of charging infrastructure is still in its infancy.
